Managing Asthma

People with asthma can learn to identify and avoid the things that trigger an episode, and educate themselves about medications and other asthma management strategies. The four parts of managing asthma are:

  • Identify and minimize contact with asthma triggers.
  • Understand and take medications as prescribed.
  • Monitor asthma to recognize signs when it is getting worse.
  • Know what to do when asthma gets worse.
