Asthma is a respiratory disorder which causes attacks of breathlessness and wheezing, as well as coughing and a feeling of tightness in the chest. Though it can occur at any age, almost half of all cases are found in children under the age of 10. Childhood cases are sometimes "outgrown" by adulthood, or at least lessen in severity as the children grow older. However, for many other individuals it remains a life-long problem. Adult-onset asthma is also on the rise. On a more encouraging note, newer understanding of the basis for the airway constriction that lies at the heart of asthma has led to better methods of control through both drug and non-drug therapies. If you want to understand asthma, how it occurs, and learn about newer thinking about treatment, you'll want this pamphlet.
