Have you every asked yourself questions such as:
What is asthma?
What causes asthma?
What can trigger an asthma attack?
Why can’t I take tablets to treat asthma?
We recommend the website of Asthma UK as a great resource to answer these and other questions. On our first aid courses, particularly our paediatric first aid courses we are often asked about asthma and have found the Asthma UK website to be a great, easily accessible resource. It is frequently updated, for example it currently has information about fasting and asthma due to Ramadan.
Asthma UK is the UK’s leading asthma charity, and with approximately 5 million people in the UK having asthma, it is a busy organisation.
