Exercise and Asthma (PAAP)

Whilst a written asthma plan,  hasn’t had the life-changing results it was hoped for, spending some time reflecting on your asthma, or in my case, the asthma of my clients’, seems sort of sensible.

A key aim of asthma care is to empower each person to take control of his or her own condition. A personalised asthma action plan (PAAP), also known as a written action plan, an individualised action plan, or a self‐management action plan, contributes to this endeavour. A PAAP includes individualised self‐management instructions devised collaboratively with the patient to help maintain asthma control and regain control in the event of an exacerbation. A PAAP includes baseline characteristics (such as lung function), maintenance medication and instructions on how to respond to increasing symptoms and when to seek medical help”.
