UNDERSTANDING ASTHMA

An estimated 1.6 million emergency room visits have asthma as the primary diagnosis.

SYMPTOMS

Some days you may experience all asthma symptoms together, while other days you may have no symptoms at all. Severe asthma symptoms are known as an "Asthma Attack"

 

When you experience asthma symptoms you may feel like you are breathing through a straw. The oxygen level in your blood may decrease causing you to feel light-headed and weak.
