Growing up, I watched my neighbor sit out of everyday activities because she had asthma.

She always carried an inhaler around with her. While it was heartbreaking to me, I know that she did what she had to do.

She never let anything stop her and always tried when she could.

She had a more severe form of asthma, so I know it was tough on her.

Growing up, I knew that if my kids ever got diagnosed with asthma, I would want to do whatever I could for them.

I know that I never fully understood my neighbor’s asthma and I know that I was always curious.

The truth is that asthma affects thousands of people each year and it comes in many forms.

Asthma is not a one size fits all issue, some people have more severe versions of it and others are fine as long as they don’t get carried away.

 

Recent Study

I have noticed that some people who are dealing with asthma kind of blow it off or they don’t take their symptoms seriously.

In a recent study, 92% of asthma sufferers believed their asthma was controlled, but in reality, 46% did not meet experts’ standards for asthma control.  

So while you may think your asthma is under control, the truth is that you could get even more help.

You don’t have to live with those pesky symptoms. In fact, there’s a way to get relief.

How do You determine the Severity of the Attack?

  • Mild: No Shortness of Breath (SOB) at rest. Mild SOB with walking. Can talk normally. Speaks in sentences. Can lay down flat. Wheezes not heard or mild. (Green Zone: Peak Flow Rate 80-100% of normal rate)
  • Moderate: SOB at rest. Speaks in phrases. Wants to sit (can’t lay down flat). Wheezing can be heard. Retractions are present (ribs pull in with each breath). (Yellow Zone: Peak Flow Rate 50-80% of normal rate)
  • Severe: Severe SOB at rest. Speaks in single words. Struggling to breathe. Wheezing may be loud. Rarely, wheezing is absent due to poor air movement. Retractions may be severe. (Red Zone: Peak Flow Rate less than 50% of normal rate)
  • Peak Flow Meter: A peak flow meter measures Peak Flow Rates (PFR). It tells us how well a person can move air out of the lungs. A PFR can be used in children 6 years and older.

Don’t wait until you have a bigger medical issue happen, take action now.
