Understand that an asthma lung attack (not ‘exacerbation’) is serious, a ‘never event’ like cutting off the wrong leg in an operating room, and is a ‘near-death’ experience.
Appreciate what can trigger an asthma attack, especially those triggers which are susceptible to modulation.
Respond appropriately in the aftermath of an attack to prevent the otherwise certain, and possibly fatal, recurrence.
