An asthma emergency is potentially life-threatening.

Most people who suffer asthma attacks are aware of their asthma and should have an action plan and medication. They may wear a medical alert device.

In an emergency, or if a patient does not have their own reliever, use another person’s reliever (if permitted under local state or territory regulations), or one from a first aid kit.
