Abstract
Asthma is one of the common diseases. Asthma was a term used by the ancient Greeks to describe any condition that causes shortness of breath. Early warning signs are breathing changes, sneezing, moodiness, headache, runny/stuffy nose, coughing, chin or throat itches, feeling tired, dark circles under eyes, trouble sleeping. Asthma creates an extensive burden on individuals and families, as it is more often under-diagnosed and under-treated. World Health Organization estimates that 300 million people suffer from asthma, 2, 55, 000 people died of asthma in 2005 and over 80% of Asthma deaths were reported from low and lower-middle income countries. In India, an estimated 57,000 deaths were attributed to asthma in 2004 and it is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in rural India. India had an estimated 15-20 million asthmatics. It was estimated that the number of people with asthma would grow by more than 100 million by 2025.As members of the health care team, pharmacists are in an excellent position to recognize patients who are not under the care of a physician or whose asthma will poorly controlled for a variety of reasons. Particular resources are provided to improve the care of disadvantaged groups with high morbidity, including certain racial groups and those who are poorly educated, live in large cities, or are poor and to address preventable factors, such as air pollution, that trigger exacerbations of Asthma.
