Relieving an Asthma Attack

Treating an Asthma Attack

The main goal of asthma treatments is to prevent asthma attacks by identifying the triggers mentioned previously and avoiding them. When an asthma attack occurs, there are "rescue" medications that can be used to relieve symptoms during an attack. These medications are typically bronchodilators that open up the airway to allow for easier breathing. Severe asthma attacks should be evaluated by a medical professional and may require hospitalization.
