First aid technique for asthma attackJul 15, 2023
- Stay calm and reassure the person - Anxiety and stress can worsen asthma symptoms, so it's important to remain calm and help the person stay calm as well.
- Help the person sit upright - Sitting upright can help the person breathe more easily and reduce the strain on their airways.
- Assist them in using their inhaler - If the person has a prescribed reliever inhaler, assist them in using it. Typically, the inhaler is a small handheld device that delivers medication directly to the airways. Instruct the person to take slow, deep breaths and follow the dosage instructions on the inhaler.
- Call for emergency medical help if symptoms worsen - If the person's symptoms worsen, they have trouble speaking, their lips turn blue, or their inhaler doesn't provide relief, it may indicate a severe asthma attack. In such cases, call for emergency medical assistance immediately.
- Stay with the person, offering support and monitoring their condition closely - Stay with the individual until medical help arrives or their symptoms subside. Reassure them and monitor their condition closely.
