Welcome to the State of the United Airways

A colourful town full of interesting characters, stories and adventures.

Often the lungs and the nose need treatment simultaneously as the entire airway is affected. It is important for patients with asthma to be assessed for allergic rhinitis because up to 80 percent of patients with asthma also need treatment for allergic rhinitis, and it is difficult to control asthma in patients who suffer from untreated allergic rhinitis.
The United Airways

The term ‘united airways’, or ‘united airways disease’ is used to describe the concept of an airway that extends from the tip of the nose to the depths of the lungs. The mucous membrane lining the nasopharynx and the bronchial tree is similar, and inflammation of the membrane causes allergic rhinitis and asthma. About three quarters of people with asthma also have allergic rhinitis, and at least ⅓ of people with allergic rhinitis also have asthma.

The inflammation in the whole airway needs to be controlled

It is important to consider the airway as a whole and think of allergic rhinitis and asthma under the same ’disease umbrella’. The concept of united airways disease impacts on treatment of both asthma and allergic rhinitis. If a person with asthma has allergic rhinitis that is untreated, it is unlikely that they will be able to control their asthma symptoms with their asthma medication.
