30 April 2018

Dr Tim Chpaman states: "If you are asthmatic and experience a worsening wheeze, breathlessness or cough, or need to take more of your reliever inhaler, it is likely that additional medical support and medication is required. Yet good knowledge of your own condition and knowing your asthma action plan (what to do if you experience a deterioration) can make a big difference to maintaining your own health and catching any flare early, before it gets too severe."
