Develop a plan: Successful asthma control can be achieved when you find a doc you can work with, learn the treatments & monitoring devices & develop a plan. This plan would include a way to tell if your control is getting better or worse (peak flow meter,symptom chart).It would include a plan for daily meds & when to use episodic rescue meds. Rescue meds are specifically used to stop an attack.
