Take Control of Your Asthma


Asthma is a disease that makes it hard to breathe.  People with asthma:

  • Are often short of breath
  • Make a whistling sound when they breathe
  • Have tightness in their chest
  • Cough a lot, especially at night

  • While asthma cannot be cured, it can be controlled.  If you or your child has asthma, our resources can help you:

  • Identify things that cause asthma symptoms or an attack
  • Know when asthma symptoms are occurring soon enough to prevent serious complications
  • Get the right medicine and devices to prevent an episode
  • See your child's doctor for treatment
