Author(s): Dr. Nguyen Xuan Hung

Abstract: Bronchial asthma is one of the most common chronic respiratory diseases. In the elderly, asthma may appear from an early age, or appear later than after 60 years. According to a research result of B. A. Bauer and partners (1997) show that every year, the incidence of bronchial asthma in people over 65 is 0.1%. In the US, according to the research results of Burrows et p. (1991), the rate of asthma in people over 60 years old is 7.5%; the result of Malik et p. (2004) was 10%.
Bronchial asthma in the elderly in Ha Tinh city is mainly in those who previously worked in heavy jobs, involving dust, smoke or polluted air. Most people feel bad about their health. Bronchial asthma in the elderly has not been paid enough attention, so the proportion of elderly people caught bronchial asthma who have or are suffering from bronchial asthma is quite high.
