Publisher's Summary

Some statistics including those by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) state that up to 25-million Americans suffer from asthma. That's approximately 1 in every 12 people or about 8.2 percent of the U.S. population. Asthma is more common in women than in men and is also more common among African Americans and Hispanics than in Caucasians.

Approximately 3,000 asthma deaths occur in the US each year. It is believed that undiagnosed asthma in a significantly large percent of sufferers in years past was due to less-adequate diagnosing of the disease. Better education on the types of asthma, its causes and related conditions (i.e. Chronic Bronchitis, Emphysema and COPD) is helping to detect more cases earlier, so that treatments can slow progression and improve the symptoms of these common respiratory diseases.

As a fellow asthma sufferer and patient advocate, it is my sincere hope that this audiobook helps to educate its listeners on this very important medical subject. This audiobook is not intended to be an extensive manual but is intended to contain information most often sought by laypersons on the subject.
