Living with asthma – how you as a patient can help

Living with asthma – how is that possible? Asthma takes on various forms and severities. What is important is that you know all about your or your child’s disease. You can actively manage your treatment to ensure it is a success. The aim is to prevent the disease from advancing and to improve your personal quality of life.

Talk to your doctor first

Over the course of an extended observation period, your doctor will establish the severity of the disease. Asthma is classified either as mild, moderate or severe and the therapy is adjusted accordingly. With targeted treatment you can improve the symptoms and lung function. Your doctor can also tell you what you yourself can do to help. Stopping smoking altogether is the first step.

Regular check-ups by the doctor

Regular visits to the doctor and lung function tests are very important for asthma patients. This ensures that treatment is always up-to-date. It also allows any sides effects to be recognised at an early stage or prevented in time. Measurements carried out by the patient also help treatment: a peak-flow metre provides data on the maximum speed at which you can blow air out of your lungs which is called the “peak flow”. Using a traffic light system, which the doctor can personalise by entering individual thresholds, the patient can tell how well managed the disease is. If the values are under 50 percent and symptoms are severe, the patient should immediately use their emergency medicine and contact a doctor.

Reacting properly in an emergency

For asthmatics it is very important to know all about their disease. Patient training teaches them to recognise the signs and to react properly in an emergency. This includes special exercises, for example, to make it easier to breathe and to correctly use the emergency medicine.

There are many things you can do to make life with asthma easier. Regular inhalations, along with breathing exercises, relaxation techniques or asthma sport, provide relief.
