Would you know what to do in the event of an asthma attack? 

What to do in an asthma attack

  • Sit up straight - don't lie down. Try to keep calm.
  • Take one puff of your reliever inhaler (usually blue) every 30-60 seconds, up to a maximum of 10 puffs.
  • If you feel worse at any point while you're using your inhaler or you don't feel better after 10 puffs or you're worried at any time, call 999 for an ambulance.
  • If the ambulance is taking longer than 15 minutes you can repeat step 2.
