One in nine Australians suffers from Asthma. Asthma is regarded as the ‘silent killer’ and the key to surviving an asthma attack is having an asthma management plan.

Crucial to asthma management is using all the resources available to you, and the best place for asthma management resources is Asthma Australia.

Resources include brochures, fact sheets, first aid posters, and videos showing correct inhaler technique. In addition, there are Asthma Action Plans in eight languages other than English, and sample policy documents for schools and child care.

Asthma Australia also runs Asthma Assist – a free asthma information service that supports asthmatics and their families and carers in better managing asthma. People who register for Asthma Assist receive an electronic Asthma Control pack, e-newsletter, and priority access to the 1800 ASTHMA Helpline.

And results from Asthma Australia’s Asthma Control Test (suitable for people aged 12 and over) can assist your Health Care Professional to help you reach the best possible asthma control.

Taking your medication is vital in controlling asthma – the right dose at the right time and in the right way.

Another important aspect in managing asthma is being aware of what triggers your attacks. Everyone has different triggers, so self-awareness is critical.

In depth information on all these topics can be found on Asthma Australia’s website.

The signs, symptoms and treatment of asthma form part of the Provide First Aid (HLTAID003) courses provided by Allens Training on the Sunshine Coast.

First aid and CPR courses can be booked by visiting our website and booking online, or by calling our Sunshine Coast office on 5438 8888.
