New Years warning: Fireworks could trigger this life-threatening condition


The health body adds what to do if you have an asthma attack

If you think you’re having an asthma attack you should:

1. Sit upright (don’t lie down) and try to take slow, steady breaths. Try to remain calm, as panicking will make things worse.

2. Take one puff of your reliever inhaler (usually blue) every 30 to 60 seconds, up to a maximum of 10 puffs.

3. Call 999 for an ambulance if you don’t have your inhaler with you, you feel worse despite using your inhaler, you don’t feel better after taking 10 puffs or you’re worried at any point.

4. If the ambulance hasn’t arrived within 15 minutes, repeat step 2.
