Week 6 Response #2 Asthma Great post! I really enjoyed reading your post. You have provided some great insights. According to Huether & McCance (2017), asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the bronchial mucosa that causes bronchial hyper-responsiveness, constriction of the airways, and variable airflow obstruction that is reversible. Asthma occurs at all ages, with approximately 6.8 million cases among children and 18.7 million cases among adults in the USA (Huether & McCance, 2017).
