Asthma Awareness Month
Spring has sprung. And with it… allergy and asthma season! Seasonal allergies and anaphylaxis are a hot topic at this time of year and this May the MedicAlert Foundation Canada is reminding Canadians to make sure they’re prepared in case of emergency.
Some Facts about Asthma:
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects airways in lungs. During asthma attacks, patients can experience wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, or tightness and pain in the chest.
Asthmatic attacks can be triggered by allergens, exercise, smoke, pollution, or airway infections.
Smoking is known to trigger asthmatic attacks. Make handmade cards to encourage your loved ones to quit smoking.
