Asthma Self Management Goals

 

If I smoke I will try to reduce and ultimately discontinue the amount that I smoke

 

I will use my peak flow meter if I have been advised to by my doctor

 

I will take medications as prescribed. I will attempt to know my medications by name. If I cannot remember the names and how much of each medication I take I will bring them with me to my appointments.

 

I will take medications to prevent asthma attacks if prescribed and use my rescue inhaler on days when my breathing is worse.

 

I will contact my doctor when I have problems such as increased trouble breathing or wheezing, or if my lips or fingernails become blue

 

I will have an influenza vaccine every year and other vaccines such as a Pneumovax as recommended.
