Abstract

Asthma, a chronic inflammatory disease of the airway system, is the most common respiratory complication that can impact pregnancy. Various physiologic changes in gestation may variably affect this pulmonary disease. The cornerstone of management involves implementing strategies and treatments that assist in maintaining normal maternal pulmonary function, thereby preventing fetal complications. Optimum therapy can provide a favorable outcome for both mother and fetus.
