Individuals must receive an individual initial assessment including all the risks that are involving the treatment of asthma. The individual suffering with asthma and those who experience frequent asthma attacks need to meet with their medical physician and discuss what is going right and what is going wrong in order to improve the treatment of asthma and the outlook of the individual. Individuals need to understand that this is a potentially deadly disease. Asthma in any of its forms, though not a terminal disease, is still a deadly disease. Many before of all age groups have died from the ravages of asthma because the medical attention it receives today was absent from daily life before.
Planned follow-up scheduled visits are of course necessary with the medical physician for the medical physician to assess how the current asthma medication is performing or if any additional changes are in order. Remember the side effects of asthma in general do change, as the individual grows older. Other complications may also begin to set in such as arthritis and even this may have an effect on the current asthma medication taken.
Allergy and asthma is another aspect to this new guideline and it tries to help clear up the facts from fiction to help put many individuals minds at ease. Education is the number one key to learning what the truth is. Regular conversation with the family medical physician is another helpful tool in the toolbox. This will continue to help each individual suffering with asthma in any form to understand and have the ability to continue with whatever comes next. In a sense it is offering information for individuals to have the ability to choose how they wish to live their lives.
Clinicians will have the opportunity to review the individual’s exposure in regards to allergens and other irritants to help reduce the exposure. Sometimes it means getting rid of the old rugs in the home or apartment. Controlling asthma and all the varied asthma symptoms will become much easier through the correct prescription for medications to help enhance the individual’s life. The days of having to spend days sitting in the emergency room at a local community hospital will greatly reduce in the days to come with the advent of education and communication.
