Some viewers have asked about the difference between an acute issue and a chronic issue. In layman’s terms, an acute issue occurs relatively suddenly but does not persist for very long durations. Examples: a broken leg, bee sting, common cold, etc. A chronic issue is a long lasting issue and may also result from an acute incident. Examples: asthma, allergies, Down syndrome, etc.
