Asthma is a chronic lung disease caused by airway inflammation and results in airway constriction in response to certain stimuli. It is characterized by a variety of symptoms including wheezing, coughing and a tightening of the airways, which causes shortness of breath and can be life-threatening(i).

Approximately 22 million Americans have asthma. Annually, the disease is responsible for nearly 2 million emergency room visits and accounts for an estimated $11.5 billion in health care costs(ii). Every day in America 40,000 people miss school or work because of asthma; 30,000 people have an asthma attack; 5,000 people visit the emergency room; 1,000 people are admitted to the hospital; and 11 people die due to their asthma condition(iii).
