Staying Healthy with Asthma

Staying healthy with Asthma

Asthma is swelling that happens in your airways and can cause coughing, wheezing, tightening in your chest, and chest congestion — which can be scary for both you and your parents. But it doesn’t need to be. On the St.Vincent Indianapolis campus the Pulmonology Office has an Asthma Clinic for children and families.

Learning how to identify an asthma attack, knowing which different situations trigger it, and be sure that you’re getting the treatment the best fits your health needs. Families, teachers, and caregivers to learn more, download this booklet, Staying Healthy with Asthma (pdf).
