Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the bronchial tubes with increased production of sticky secretions inside the tubes. People with asthma experience symptoms when the airways tighten, inflame, or fill with mucus.

1. If someone is having an asthma attack, he will cough, wheeze, and have difficulty in breathing,; reassure him and try to keep him calm.

2. To ease breathing, have him sit up and lean slightly forward, resting on his elbows. Or turn on the hot water in the bathroom and have him sit and breathe the moist air.

3. Give her the prescribed medication along with liquids to prevent dehydration. People aged 6 years and above should use up to 10 puffs in 10 minutes while people under 6years should use up to 6 puffs in 10 minutes.

4. If the medication doesn't bring immediate relief, take him quickly but calmly to the nearest hospital emergency room or you call an ambulance. While waiting for an ambulance, try to make him or her keep calm.
