Preparing for the September Asthma Peak
It is important that people with asthma continue to take their daily controller medication during the summer. This is especially true for children because they are more likely to be exposed to allergens and respiratory irritants once they return to school.
Asthma attacks requiring a hospital or ER visit tend to spike each year in September, which is known as the September asthma peak. Learn how you can be proactive and reduce your risk for an asthma attack.
