Smoke from campfires can be an asthma trigger. If you know you're going to be around wood smoke, make sure you have your reliever medication on hand, and avoid breathing in the smoke as much as possible. . . . . . #woodsmoke #camping #campfire #fire #asthmacanada #asthmaeducation #trigger #asthmasymptoms #themoreyouknow #summer #nights #camp #wellness #health #BreatheEasy #July #2018 #Summer2018 #Canada #asthmatriggers #asthma #smoke

The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) is an online tool that helps you monitor your local air quality. High AQHI readings (7-10) can cause increased asthma symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and the need for increased inhaler use. Plan your outdoor activities by checking the AQHI to minimize health risks - it's as easy as checking the weather! . . . . . #AQHI #Cleanair #planning #asthma #breathing #asthmacanada #themoreyouknow #asthmasymptoms #airquality #allergies #allergy #air #triggers #asthmatriggers #asthmaeducation #tips #lungs #health #wellness #healthyliving #Canada #July

Do you know your numbers? Knowing your lung-function measurements helps your healthcare provider assess the severity of your #asthma and create a treatment plan.

Using a spacer helps ensure that your asthma medications work effectively. Spacers can make it easier for medication to reach the lungs, and also mean less medication gets deposited in the mouth and throat, where it can lead to irritation and mild infections. We recommend that anyone, of any age, who is using a puffer should consider using a spacer. Do you use a spacer when taking your asthma medications?

Just a day after his 29th birthday, Maninder Singh lost his life to an asthma attack. That day, he had intended to celebrate his birthday with his family and friends, but tragically he never got the chance. Maninder, who was lovingly called "Rinku" by those close to him, lived with mild to moderate asthma and no one could have foreseen that asthma would claim his life. To give Rinku the party he never had, his family is commemorating his life with the biggest birthday bash ever: The Rinx Royale Memorial Gala on July 20th.
