Asthma is a serious disease and we recommend that you attend for your annual review with the practice nurse EVEN if you believe that your asthma is well controlled.  Many patients are admitted to hospital each year with asthma attacks that could have been prevented.

 

There is no cure for asthma, although there are effective medicines for asthma that allow the majority of people to control their asthma and lead normal daily lives.

 

It is important that you take your asthma medicine as directed and use the correct inhaler at the correct time.  Our practice nurse will explain how to use your inhalers properly and check that you have the correct technique.  

 

There are two types of inhalers, reliever and preventer.  The practice nurse will advise you when, and how often, each should be used.

 

 

You may like to consider your answers to the following three questions:-

 

1. In the last month/week have you had difficulty sleeping due to your asthma (including cough symptoms)?

 

2. Have you had your usual asthma symptoms (e.g. cough, wheeze, chest tightness, shortness of breath) during the day?

 

3. Has your asthma interfered with your usual daily activities (e.g. school, work, housework)?

 

 

If you've answered 'yes' to any of the above questions, it may be that your asthma is not as well controlled as it could be.  Please make an appointment to see our practice nurse.
