Study Participant Requirements:

– Between the ages of 12 -17

– A Nasal Polyp in each nostril

Qualified participants will receive at no cost:

Definition
Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This
can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that
interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.
Asthma can’t be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled. Because asthma often changes
over time, it’s important that you work with your doctor to track your signs and symptoms and
adjust treatment as needed.

Symptoms
Symptoms of asthma can be mild or severe. You may have mild attacks now and then, or you
may have severe symptoms every day, or you may have something in between. How often you
have symptoms can also change. When you have asthma, you may:
 Wheeze, making a loud or soft whistling noise that occurs when you breathe in and out.
 Cough a lot.
 Feel tightness in your chest.
 Feel short of breath.
 Have trouble sleeping because of coughing or having a hard time breathing.
 Quickly get tired during exercise.
 Your symptoms may be worse at night.
 Severe asthma attacks can be life-threatening and need emergency treatment.

How is Asthma Diagnosed?
Along with doing a physical exam and asking about your health, your doctor may order lung
function tests. These tests include:
 Spirometry. Doctors use this test to diagnose and keep track of asthma. It measures
how quickly you can move air in and out of your lungs and how much air you move.
 Peak expiratory flow (PEF). This shows how fast you can breathe out when you try your
hardest.
 An exercise or inhalation challenge. This test measures how quickly you can breathe
after exercise or after taking a medicine.
 A chest X-ray, to see if another disease is causing your symptoms.
 Allergy tests, if your doctor thinks your symptoms may be caused by allergies.
