This is a chronic disease involving the airways in the lungs. These airways allow air in and out of the lungs and allow for your body to have enough oxygen. Asthma means inflamed and narrower airways. Certain triggers such as allergens and fumes can make your airways more irritated and narrow.

Implementing the plan with all its parts ensures your lung disease stays controlled, helps prevent worsening of lung functions and prevents unnecessary hospitalizations.
