Asthma
Asthmatic attack without inhaler
Steps to help a person with asthmatic attack without inhaler: - Sit upright, thus opens the airway. - Slow down breathing by taking long, deep breaths. Breathe in through the nose. Exhale through the mouth. - Stay calm, as anxiety tightens the chest and back muscles, which makes it more difficult to breathe. - Get away from the trigger. - Move into clean air, preferably an air-conditioned environment, and try to take slow, deep breaths. - Drink a warm, caffeinated beverage, such as coffee or tea. Caffeine has similar properties to some asthma medications and can help temporarily improve airway functions. - Get medical help.
