Asthma Action Plan

What is an asthma action plan?

Everyone with asthma can benefit from using an asthma action plan.

It tells you, and anyone with you:

  • which medicines you take every day to prevent symptoms and cut your risk of an asthma attack
  • what to do if your asthma symptoms are getting worse  
  • the emergency action to take if you’re having an asthma attack and when to call 999.

You fill it in with your GP or asthma nurse, so it’s personal to you and your asthma.

Then take it along to all your asthma appointments, including any out of hours appointments or A&E, so your doctor or asthma nurse can help you keep it up to date.

“Experts recommend asthma action plans to look after your asthma well and cut your risk of an asthma attack,” says Dr Andy Whittamore, Asthma UK’s in-house GP.

Inhaler Technique

Inhaler Technique

Taken from Asthma UK correct as of 15/03/2021

 

How does good inhaler technique help you manage your asthma?

If you’re using your preventer inhaler as prescribed, and using the right inhaler technique, it can help you:

  • cut your risk of an asthma attack
  • feel less breathless climbing stairs
  • cope better with your usual asthma triggers
  • get a good night’s sleep
  • have less time off work
  • take part in exercise and family activities.

Good inhaler technique can really make a difference to how well you manage your asthma. It could also mean you’ll be able to manage your asthma symptoms without needing to be prescribed higher doses.
