Feedback - A Lifesaver
Gillian reached out to us to share her experience with us - we are so humbled to be able to help people like Gillian and her family- and we can help you too! Referrals and consults with us are free."Our consultation with Asthma Waikato was a life-saver for us, in lots of different ways. Our son (age 7) is the first person in our family to have asthma, and we had it under control until all of a sudden we didn’t and he got a lot worse really quickly. He’d recover from his attacks, but his asth...March 9, 2022

How Many Doses?
Just a reminder that there are a FINITE number of doses in your puffer inhaler. It may keep puffing even when it is empty, due to the aerosol. Some inhalers have counters but some, like Flixotide, don't. It's really important you know when it will run out otherwise you may be 'dosing' your child with nothing but aerosol. Watch this quick video Alyssia did last year as part of our Thursday Thoughts theme, to learn the easy way to clock this....November 4, 2021

Scary Asthma Flare Ups
We have had a few parents lately who have experienced some scary asthma flare-ups in their kids. They went to the ED at the hospital, were seen and then were sent home a little while later. However, once home, things got worse and the child needed the blue reliever puffer less than every two hours. What should they do? GO BACK to the Emergency Department. If your child needs reliever medicine this frequently or if it isn't working when you give it, don't delay, seek help straight away. Things ca...May 12, 2021
