Patients suffering asthma at high-risk for other health complicationsSinusitis is a health complication that affects nearly 37 million people in the United States alone and a big part of this affected population also suffers from asthma that is an inflammatory disease of the lungs characterized by obstruction of reversible airway.

A study was entailed to find out the variations in sinusitis symptoms noticed by asthmatics versus non-asthmatics and the authors of “The Incidence and the Effect of Asthma on Consecutive Patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis,” were Melanie W. Seybt MD, Kevin C. McMains MD, and Stilianos E. Kountakis MD PhD, all with the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA.

The findings were presented at the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York City, NY.
