Hi my name is Kayti Brosnan. I'm a Registered Nurse here in Austin, Texas and today I'm going to talk about some of the causes of asthma in children. What happens with asthma is there is an inflammation of the airway or narrowing of the airway and then this results in the narrowing of the tubes going down into the lungs and so they're not getting as much air in or out as a normal person would. Some of the things that causes this are allergens in the air whether it be dust or pollens. It could be smoke or pollution and sometimes what causes it is lack of breast feeding at an early age so they're not getting some of the natural components that they need for their immune system, some kids are also under exposed to illness and so their immune system is actually not as strong as it should be and asthma is one of the results of these. So those are just some of the causes, not all of them but some of the causes of asthma.
