Asthma Action Plan
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 works with a person to design a plan that works best for him
or her. It can include a list of what triggers the person's symptoms and how to avoid
these triggers, a list of symptoms to watch for and what to do if they happen, and
the names and doses of medications the person needs and when to use them. It may also
include information on what to do in an emergency.
