PROVIDERS

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that affects millions of people worldwide. You must understand your asthma and how it needs to be managed. Understanding the triggers, recognizing the symptoms, and knowing the available treatments are essential for managing this condition effectively. When you have your asthma under control, you can live your best life and continue to enjoy your favorite activities again.

Managing Your Asthma

Asthma is a condition where the airways become inflamed and narrowed, leading to difficulty in breathing. This inflammation can cause episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Asthma triggers vary from person to person, but common ones include:

  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Pet dander
  • Smoke
  • Pollution
  • Strong odors

Asthma attacks can also be exacerbated by exercise, humidity, and viral infections.

Common symptoms of asthma can include:

  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness
  • Coughing, especially at night or early morning

Severe symptoms could include severe wheezing, difficulty speaking, and rapid breathing. It’s important you know how to treat your asthma when going through an attack and how to manage it to avoid further complications.

Quick-relief inhalers, also known as rescue inhalers, provide rapid relief during an asthma attack by relaxing the muscles around the airways. Inhaled corticosteroids and other long-term medications help reduce inflammation and prevent symptoms.

If asthma is caused by allergens, be sure to identify and avoid your known triggers. Work with your doctor to create an asthma action plan that includes how to monitor symptoms, adjust medications, and handle attacks. It’s important to maintain regular visits to your doctor to monitor your asthma and adjust treatment as needed.
