Exercise asthma can be difficult when you want to stay in shape. It is usually triggered by cold, dry air and can get worse with physical exertion.
By using some of the following products, you can develop an asthma action plan to control the symptoms. At home, you should have an air cleaner to remove harmful allergens while you sleep and a humidifier to bring warm, moist air to your lungs. If you need it, a nebulizer system can immediately treat symptoms. A sports or cold mask will always bring warm air into your lungs and decrease the risk of an asthma attack.
If you exercise frequently, you should use a peak flow meter to monitor your lungs and a pulse oximeter to measure oxygen. This will tell if your condition should become severe.
Most people find fewer problems with asthma when they find a treatment plan or plan of action that works. Read The SAFE Asthma Treatment Guide and discover the four steps to controlling asthma. With a little guidance from this report and a help from your doctor, you can control your wheezing and coughing so that you can breathe easier. This report will give you a blueprint so that you can manage your symptoms at anytime.
And remember … any asthma treatment prescribed by a physician should always be taken as ordered, even if there are no symptoms. Your doctor is the gatekeeper to keeping you healthy.
