Asthma, Air Pollution and Environmental Exposure

Authors: Marianne Frieri, Hyfaa Mashaal, Krishan Kumar and Anthony Boutin

Abstract: A large number of asthmatic patients, particularly females, present inadequate disease control. Depressive symptoms are reportedly common in asthma and have been related to poor disease control, but the mechanism of this association is still unclear. Poor quality sleep, frequently observed in asthmatics, is also a manifestation of depression and has been related to uncontrolled asthma.
