  • Inhaler Technique

    Asthma is a condition that affects your airways – the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. Common symptoms of asthma can include:

    • coughing
    • wheezing
    • tightness in the chest
    • feeling short of breath.

    Not all sufferers of asthma will experience all of the above symptoms. If you think you may have asthma you must make an appointment with your GP.
