Airway Disease

 Reactive airway disease is a term that is used to describe a series of symptoms suggesting a person has a bronchial spasm. This is a reaction that needs further investigation within their airways. A bronchial spasm arises when something irritates the bronchial tubes (airway). Reactive disease on the airways, like asthma, occurs most often after you have an infection. It is caused by some irritant that triggers overreaction and swelling or narrowing of the airways. Some causes or irritants might include the following: pet hair or dander. The words "reactive airway disorder" and "asthma" are also used interchangeably but they aren't the same thing. When asthma is suspected, but not yet proven, the term "reactive airway condition" is also employed. ... Asthma may or may not cause those signs and symptoms.
