Asthma Care at National Jewish HealthAsthma is a chronic lung disease, also known as reactive airway disease. Asthma symptoms can include wheezing, tight chest and shortness of breath. The good news is that with good medical care, the right asthma medications and proper monitoring, you can keep asthma under control.
