Synopsis

Asthma The Ultimate Teen Guide by Penny Hutchins Paquette

This easy-to-read guide provides specific information that teens can use to better monitor and manage their illness and improve their quality of life while living with asthma. What happens in the body during an attack, what specific triggers might make asthma worse, medications that can help, and symptoms that signal asthma is getting worse are all covered. Teens will not only find factual information to take a proactive role in the management of their illness, but they will also enjoy reading interviews with other teens who have asthma and finding out how they feel about taking medication, what it feels like to have an asthma attack, and how they deal with inquiries from their friends.
