The Asthma Center is a division of the NEA Baptist Clinic's Pulmonary
department. The physicians, nurses, and a registered respiratory
therapist educate and treat persons who have asthma. Asthma is a
chronic, inflammatory disorder of the airways. It is manifested by
mucus-filled, swollen, constricted airways that cause wheezing,
breathlessness, chest tightness, and airflow limitation.
