Have an Asthma Action Plan
If you have an asthma attack, will you know what to do? An asthma action plan is a personalized worksheet that lays out the steps you should take if an attack gets work. This plan helps guide your self-management decisions with the goal of preventing and controlling your asthma attacks. There are three main areas to cover in your plan:
Avoiding asthma triggers
Taking medicines appropriately
Identifying worsening asthma and knowing what to do about it
You’ll work with your healthcare provider to develop each area of your plan. Most providers use a pre-printed form you fill in together. Once it’s complete, share it with your other doctors, providers, and anyone else who needs to know.
