Respiratory medicine involves the care of patients with all forms of respiratory disease. Respiratory specialists deal with over 30 different conditions, some very common and some rare. Asthma is a chronic disease characterized by recurrent attacks of breathlessness and wheezing, which vary in severity and frequency from person to person. Asthma treatment can vary from anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator asthma inhalers to oral medications to asthma drugs delivered in an asthma nebulizer or breathing machine.
