Our asthma action plan for adults help patients take control of their asthma, know when to adjust their medications and decide when to seek urgent care. To take the guesswork out of managing your asthma, use an asthma action plan.
Your asthma action plan tells you:
What symptoms you should watch for
What your symptoms mean
How to adjust your medication according to your symptoms
When to call your healthcare provider or 9-1-1
Ask your doctor to fill out an asthma action plan for you. Make sure you understand what the plan says and carry it out. If you have any questions, ask your doctor. You can also talk about your action plan with a Certified Asthma Educator or Certified Respiratory Educator, a healthcare professional with special training in asthma management.
