Asthma is a chronic underlying condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It has a variety of issues that it may cause including shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, airway inflammation and swelling among many others. These issues usually arise from a potential trigger (environmental or genetic) and can cause an hyper-responsive airway issue. The Doctor of Nursing Practice practitioner should be extremely knowledgeable and trained on the different types of interventions and implications when dealing with asthma. The intention of this poster is to educate students on the importance of understanding the pathophysiology of asthma and its effect on the human body and ultimately the care that is derived from those effects.
