Bronchial asthma in the elderly

Bronchial asthma (asthma for short) is a chronic airway inflammation dominated by eosinophil and mast cell response. For susceptible people, such inflammation can cause a wide range of reversible airway obstruction symptoms in varying degrees. The clinical manifestations were recurrent wheezing, dyspnea, chest tightness or cough. It can be treated or recovered by itself, and its airway has high reactivity to irritants. The above definition of asthma is based on the conclusions of recent studies on the pathophysiology of asthma in young people. There is still a lack of data to prove the mechanism of asthma in the elderly, especially whether airway inflammation is the same as that in young people.
