Animation - Understanding Asthma: Mild, Moderate, and Severe
Asthma is a chronic (long lasting) lung condition that causes coughing, wheezing, and breathing problems. It happens when inflammation and changes in the lungs reduce the flow of oxygen into the blood, making it hard to breathe. Watch this animation to learn about the common causes, symptoms, medicines, as well as the different types of asthma: mild, moderate and severe.
