Asthma: Do you have an action plan?

Published on July 20, 2015 at 9:54 / Updated on May 8, 2018 at 20:53

Asthma is an inflammation of the lungs’ airways that affects around 2.5 million Canadians.

Symptoms vary based on a number of factors, and asthma can swiftly deteriorate to the point where medical attention is required. One key to successfully treating asthma is developing an action plan in consultation with your health professional.

An asthma action plan is essentially a series of questions to determine the success of your asthma control paired with personalized measures to prevent temporary loss of control. A solid plan helps you identify the symptoms of poor asthma control—coughing, breathing difficulties, shortness of breath during physical exercise or at rest, wheezing, frequent use of inhalers, etc.—and make optimal use of prescription drugs. An action plan is an effective way to better understand and manage your disease. Do you have yours?
