Preventing Asthmatic attacks



Asthma is a respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It is usually connected to allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity. The chest tightens and the lungs seem to produce a wheezing sound. While there's no cure, there are steps you can take to keep your asthma in control and prevent an attack. Below are five steps to follow to prevent asthma attacks.



Identify triggers and symptoms:  It is vital that you start to keep track of your asthma symptoms in a diary. It is also necessary for you to monitor your causes of asthma, monitor it for weeks and take cognizance of the environmental and emotional factors that are associated with it. This way, you can take steps to avoid the attack.



Avoid  smoking areas: Totally avoid smoking areas as smoke and asthma are such a bad mix. Avoid all sources of smoke including tobacco, incense, candles and fire.



Master your asthma action plan with your doctor: Take note of your asthma action plan i.e  the documentation of your important medical information, how you handle your asthma attack, and control the symptoms .  Mastering your asthma action plan helps you  monitor the symptoms and severity of your asthma attacks.



Flu Vaccination : It is quite important that an asthma patient get a flu shot every year.  Asthmatic patient are likely to have complications from flu and are more likely to get hospitalized.  Getting vaccinated for flu will help to prevent chest infects that can trigger asthma attacks.



Get regular exercise : Exercise is beneficial for overall health  as well as lung health. People with asthma should still get regular exercise. And with the right approach, physical activity can benefit your asthma symptoms. Exercise helps by increasing lung capacity and reducing inflammation, which improves your overall lung health. Despite these benefits, you should still take your medicine as prescribed.
