Asthma and its Triggers

Singulair, Merck
Rapp Collins Worldwide
New version in 2012 for UCSF

Designed as a patient education animation for pediatric asthma, this animation explains how triggers can set off an attack, causing constriction of the bronchioles and leading to build up of mucus in the airways.

This hinders the passage of oxygen to the alveoli for gas exchange into the circulation, causing shortness of breath.Tactics to maintain airflow and avoid attacks are also demonstrated.
