>According to the Centers for Disease
Control, and prevention more than six
million children have asthma in the United States, it’s because the children
have smaller Airways than adults, which we don’t think about all the time, makes
asthma very serious for them, so I want you to if you would please we have a 3d
model up here that I’d like you to look at, and tell us a little bit more about
asthma in children and the adults, and and the differences that we see here
between them.>as you said Ed, the the bronchioles and the whole
respiratory tract in children is smaller than adults, and basically in asthma it’s
it’s a reactive disease, so another name for asthma that we typically call is
reactive airway disease, and it’s basically that the Airways are reacting
to various different things, they either are reacting to inflammation from
allergy, they can be reacting to infectious agents, they can be reacting
to exposure to certain things in the environment, so it’s a reactive airway
disease.>Where that would you’re showing us right in with the cursor that airway
right now, that’s the one that I mean everything changes of course with
children and adults but that’s the most affected part of the airway?.>Yes
typically typically down in here, asthma is a disease of the lower air weight of
the respiratory tract, and what happens is if you think about an air filter, when
we change our air filter it’s clean air can flow in and out, in asthma or
reactive airway disease though the bronchioles get very inflamed and full,
and so they have a harder time for air
