    00:00 So let's wrap up this video series. Asthma is a chronic condition. It causes both inflammation and bronchoconstriction which is a narrowing of the bronchial tubes. So common symptoms your patients will experience will be like wheezing particularly expiratory wheezing. So they'll have coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. We use medications to control the symptoms of asthma and they'll address both the bronchoconstriction and the airway inflammation. And the healthcare team and the patient should work together. They need to collaborate to develop an effective asthma action plan. Thank you for watching our video today.
