Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects the airways in the lungs. It is characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, which can cause symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Asthma can be triggered by a variety of factors, including allergens, exercise, and respiratory infections.

It is important for people with asthma to have regular check-ups with their GP, even if they are not currently experiencing any symptoms. Regular check-ups can help ensure that asthma is well-managed and under control, and can also help identify any potential complications or changes in the condition.

In addition to regular check-ups, it is important for people with asthma to know how to use their inhaler properly. The following videos provide instructions on how to use different types of inhalers, which are commonly used to manage asthma symptoms:

By closely with a healthcare provider, people with asthma can better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
