Asthma can be unpredictable, but it is important to recognize the difference between a minor flare-up and an attack that could be life-threatening.
By recognizing the early warning signs and talking with your health care provider, you can help keep little flare-ups from turning into big ones.
You may think of the ER as a source of the most immediate medical attention, but if your situation is not a real emergency, this isn't true.
A peak flow meter for asthma is like a thermometer for a fever—it helps you monitor what's going on inside your lungs by measuring airflow out of the lungs.
