"Three Common Comorbidities With Asthma - Does Their Treatment Improve Outcomes?" - Sidney S. Braman, MD and Linda Rogers, MD
The comorbidities of asthma have become recognized more and more in the past several years. In 2016, a meta-analysis of 11 studies comprising nearly half a million patients with asthma showed a strong association between asthma and cardiovascular disease, as well as systemic hypertension and gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. Sidney Braman, MD, director of the Pulmonary Disease Management Program at The Mount Sinai Hospital and Linda Rogers, MD, clinical director of the Asthma Program at Mount Sinai National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute discuss three of these comorbidities: GERD, rhinitis (both allergic and nonallergic), and obstructive sleep apnea.
