Young at higher risk of asthma attack

asthmaAsthma UK is warning that young people are at a higher risk of having an asthma attack than any other age.  The charity polled of over 10,000 asthma suffers and found that younger people are twice as likely as people over 60 to need emergency care.

  • Do not skip taking your preventer
  • Do not leave the house without your inhaler
  • In cold weather, wear a scarf round your nose/mouth to protect you from the cold air

You are having an asthma attack if:

  • your blue reliever isn’t helping, or you need to use it more than every four hours
  • you’re wheezing a lot, have a very tight chest, or you’re coughing a lot
  • you’re breathless and find it difficult to walk or talk
  • your breathing is getting faster and it feels like you can’t get your breath in properly
