This booklet, prepared by National Jewish Health®, provides general information about asthma. Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that is sometimes worrisome and inconvenient, but which is a manageable condition. With proper understanding, good medical care and monitoring, you can keep asthma under control. That's our treatment goal at National Jewish Health: to teach patients and families how to manage asthma, so that they can lead full and productive lives.
