WELL, IF YOU EVER END UP
IN THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT, IT’S VERY IMPORTANT THAT
AFTER THAT EXPERIENCE YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
WITH YOUR FAMILY DOCTOR, GO TO THE DOCTOR, AND
GET SOME KIND OF COURSE OF ACTION, SOME TYPE
OF PLAN IN PLACE. THE ASTHMA MANAGEMENT PLAN
IS A WRITTEN WAY FOR YOU TO KNOW WHEN TO USE YOUR
CHILD’S ASTHMA MEDICATIONS. IF YOUR CHILD HAS NOT HAD
AN ASTHMA MANAGEMENT PLAN UNTIL NOW, IT’S TIME TO
MAKE ONE WITH YOUR DOCTOR. NO ONE WANTS TO KEEP
GOING BACK AND FORTH TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM. THAT’S NO WAY
TO TREAT ASTHMA. THE BEST WAY THOUGH TREAT
ASTHMA IS TO TAKE MORE OF A PROACTIVE APPROACH INSTEAD
OF A REACTIVE APPROACH. IF YOU WAIT FOR THE
SYMPTOMS TO OCCUR, A LOT OF TIMES YOU END UP
WITH YOUR CHILD BEING SICK UNNECESSARILY. YOU DON’T WANT TO
GO THROUGH THAT. YOU WANT TO CATCH IT SOON. THE KEY IS CONSISTENCY–
MEDICATION AND CONSISTENCY.
