Asthma can be a life-altering disease that affects a patient’s daily routine. It can lead to the patient feeling anxious, breathless and helpless. Strict control over environmental factors is an important first step in the patient’s management of their disease. When that is not enough, pharmacological therapy must be initiated in a stepwise fashion. The clinician needs to know what medication regime should be started and how it may affect the patient’s daily routine. With prompt clinical assessment and medical management, patients with asthma can live relatively normal lives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
