    00:01 So, in a nutshell.

    00:02 Asthma.

    00:03 It's a reversible obstructive lung disease.

    00:06 There are 2 hallmarks: bronchoconstriction and increased mucus production.

    00:12 There's variability in the severity, and it requires a baseline management and management of exacerbations.

    00:20 Exacerbations, remember, are caused by triggers and the list is long.

    00:24 You need to identify the triggers in your patient.

    00:28 It can be a clinical diagnosis.

    00:30 If it can't be diagnosed clinically or if it's ambiguous, it can be diagnosed by various tests.

    00:36 Management of asthma involves a step-wise approach and an asthma action plan.

    00:42 Thank you for watching this lecture on asthma.
