Parent’s Guide To Childhood Asthma!

I am very lucky, none of my children or grandchildren have had to suffer with asthma, thank HEAVENS because asthma is scary!! I have the most useful infographic about Childhood Asthma I had no idea that asthma can not be cured. After I  read over this infographic I was very wrong on several points concerning asthma. Did you know 640,000 kids were rushed to emergency rooms in 2010?! WOW!!According to the American Lung Association, asthma is one of the leading chronic childhood disorders which is mostly triggered by allergens, respiratory infections, and inhaled irritants. Not only is this disease very serious but it can even be life-threatening in children.  Over 150 children die every year from asthma. That’s 150 too many!

Increase your knowledge of the disease, identify common triggers, and find out how to prevent asthma attacks all in an easy, step-by-step guide. And above all have a plan if your child does have asthma.

Incorporating a humidifier in your home is a great start in preventing asthma attacks or at least cutting them down. Make sure to replace your humidifier filters often to ensure you are getting all the air borne contaminates like pet dander, dust, pollen and other allergens. For me clean air inside the home is important asthma or not. I know for a fact that I breathe better and sleep better when I run our humidifier.
For those of you with family members that have asthma my heart goes out to you.

    I’m glad they know a little better nowadays how to help ppl with asthma. It is terrible our air has gotten so terrible, I think of the ppl in China the problems they are making for their people. This is good info to know. I just found out that older ppl who have asthma are more prone to pneumonia, and there is a one-time vaccine for it, if a person would want to consider it. So it is a problem that you can’t grow out of, even if you learn to manage it better.


    I developed asthma when I was a toddler & I’ve lost count of the number of times we ended up in A&E, especially at night. I once added up all the days I’d missed from 1 year of school & it was a case of months rather than weeks. Some years I was home more than at school. The upside is that (thankfully with a teacher for a Mum) I became very self-reliant & a dedicated reader, both of which have been blessings. The downside (apart from the actual fright of not being able to breathe) are the sleepless nights, actual scarring to my lungs from all the infections over the years and an amount of lonliness. Thankfully it’s so much better with modern drugs and very well-controlled now.
