How do we keep people from having asthma? Asthma controllers are the way we say
that.
And the most important asthma controller that we have would be the
inhaled corticosteroids.

amount of ER trips, hospitalizations, coughing, wheezing, and shortness of
breath, but remember it's every day or else it's just not gonna work well.
