Exercise Induced Asthma?
Here is a handy checklist from the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology
|Use a short-acting inhaler, 15 minutes prior to exercise. This will help ease asthma exacerbations and lasts between four to six hours.|
|Warm-up for six to ten minutes before beginning a full exercise program.|
|Drink plenty of fluids.|
|Stop exercising if symptoms arise.|
|Cool down at the end of your exercise.|
