Is Your Asthma Under Control?

If your asthma is not well-controlled, you may need to discuss other treatment options with your allergy doctor. If your asthma is reasonably under control, you likely experience symptoms and require your rescue inhaler no more than twice per week, with the exception of exercise. You should also be able to sleep normally and avoid visits to the emergency room.

To determine whether a physician would consider your asthma well controlled, watch this video. The board-certified allergy doctor in this video also explains the indicators that your doctor looks for to evaluate the management of your asthma.

Board certified allergists/immunologists comprise the entire physician staff of Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM.  These premier allergy doctors provide comprehensive allergy testing and asthma diagnostics and state of the art treatment, including two types of immunotherapy, at offices located in center city Philadelphia, Blue Bell, King of Prussia, Jenkintown, Doylestown, Lansdale, Pottstown, and Collegeville, Pennsylvania.

How to Identify and React to Anaphylactic Shock

Anaphylactic shock is a severe and potentially life-threatening body-wide allergic reaction. This reaction may be brought on by many types of allergies, such as food, insect, or drug allergies. It’s important to recognize the symptoms of anaphylaxis and seek medical care as soon as possible in order to treat this serious condition.

Know the Symptoms

  • Anaphylactic shock is caused by the sudden triggering of an allergy. Its symptoms often occur within minutes of contact with an allergen. A sudden drop in blood pressure may cause dizziness or fainting. The narrowing of airways and swelling of the throat, mouth, or tongue in response to an allergen can cause difficulty or even inability to breathe. Other symptoms include hives or a rash on the skin, vomiting or nausea, a weak and racing pulse, and an impending feeling of doom or disaster.

Stay Calm and Seek Help

  • The most important thing you can do in cases of anaphylactic shock is to remain calm. Assess the situation and call an emergency number such as 911, or visit an emergency medical facility immediately for treatment. If anaphylaxis has caused the cessation of breathing or a heartbeat, CPR may be administered. Many people who are at risk for such a severe allergic reaction carry a one-use epinephrine autoinjector, sometimes known as an EpiPen. If an injector is available, use it as soon as possible by injecting the medication into the thigh.
  • Even if symptoms improve after an EpiPen injection, professional medical care to address the situation is still needed. Inform paramedics or doctors that you have administered epinephrine and keep the injector for identification if possible. You should also inform medical staff of the allergen and, if possible, how contact occurred.

Anaphylactic shock can be managed and prevented with the treatment available from the allergy doctors at Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM.
