Helping Your Child Get Through an Asthma Attack

Last updated 2 years ago

Asthma is one of the most common respiratory conditions among children, and it is important to know how to respond to an asthma attack when your child has one. If a fast-acting inhaler is not available, there are some ways to help your child to return to steady breathing, such as belly breathing, which is discussed in this video. In this demonstration, you can see the proper method for belly breathing to relax and promote proper respiration in a child with asthma.
