Patient Education

We want to provide you with information about your asthma in order for you to self-manage and take control of your asthma. As you become more knowledgeable about your asthma, you will be able to successfully perform the following daily self-management tasks:
  • Monitor your symptoms.
  • Monitor your airways, while using a Wright Peak Flow Meter (as soon as you wake up).
  • Review your Asthma Action Plan. For example; know whether you fit into the Yellow, Green or Red zone based on your asthma symptoms and peak flow measurement.
  • Understand how to adjust your treatment if your asthma is getting worse.
  • Know what course of action to take if your symptoms and pulmonary function (Peak Flow Meter results) do not get better after adjusting your treatment.

IMPORTANT: Remember to test your asthma knowledge by taking the quiz at the end of each module. 

Begin with Module 1.
