Sit down with your doctor to develop an Asthma Action Plan. A plan can be very helpful, especially during an asthma flare-up.
Your Asthma Action Plan can help you decide:
What medicines to take
How much to take
When to take them
When and how to get help
Your Asthma Action Plan should include:
Emergency phone numbers
See your doctor every 3 to 6 months for an asthma checkup.
Sharing your plan
You may want to give a copy to friends, relatives, teachers, coaches, neighbors and babysitters so that they can help you if you have a flare-up.
|An Asthma Action Plan may use 4 color "zones" to help you decide what to do:|
|Green Zone (Doing Well)||
|Yellow Zone (Symptoms Starting)||
|Orange Zone (In Trouble)||
|Red Zone (In Danger)||
