Understanding Asthma Symptoms

Warning signs of an asthma attack include:

*Tightness of breath/ hard to breathe * A decrease in lung function

* Signs of a cold.

* Frequent cough, especially at night.

* The frequent need to use your rescue inhaler.

* Losing your breath easily

Asthma symptoms include episodes of:

* Coughing, often and mostly in the evening

* Tickle in the throat or rattle in the chest

* Tightness or pressure in/on the chest.

* Shortness of breath.

* Wheezing (a high-pitched whistling sound that occurs when exhaling).

Compiled by TN August 2008 for Call Your Doctor If * You or another person is experiencing an episode of asthma for the first time. Asthma can quickly become serious if not treated promptly and properly. * Your rescue inhaler (usually albuterol) does not work to relieve your symptoms within 20 minutes * You or the person with asthma cannot talk in complete sentences. Other things to look for: flaring nostrils; the skin between the ribs is sucked in with each breath; the lips or the skin under the nails appear grayish or bluish. These are all signs of extreme oxygen deprivation. Get immediate emergency treatment.
