Asthma Action Plan

(En español: Plan de acción contra el asma)

Say:az-muh ak-shun plan

Lots of stuff goes more smoothly when you have a plan - and that includes dealing with asthma. An asthma action plan is a set of written instructions that can help a person manage breathing problems. That way, the person doesn't have to go to the doctor or hospital all the time. A doctor designs the action plan together with his or her patient. It may include triggers, problems to watch for, information about medicine, and important phone numbers. The plan also may tell the person what to do in an emergency.
