According to the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America, asthma affects over 25 million Americans, both children and adults. Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that can cause difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing and even chest pain. While there is no cure for asthma, it can be managed by understanding your triggers. Asthmatic triggers are different for each person; a trigger could be cold weather, or something in the environment such as dust, pet dander or smoke. When you breathe in a trigger your airways can become inflamed and narrow, making it more difficult to move air in and out of your lungs.

Some people with asthma have only occasional symptoms, while others have a more severe condition that interferes with daily life. In any case, uncontrolled asthma can lead to a life-threatening attack. That’s why a MedicAlert ID is an essential part of your proactive asthma action plan. In an asthmatic episode, you may not be able to communicate what’s happening. A custom engraved medical ID will speak for when you can’t. MedicAlert will alert others to your condition and share your treatment details – so you can receive the best possible care, when you need it the most.
