What are the types of asthma and their treatments

Asthma is a disease that causes breathing problems. Asthma can be very mild, just as it can be very severe. That is why asthma is divided into these categories: intermittent asthma, mild asthma, moderate asthma, and severe persistent asthma. These types of asthma are determined by the frequency and severity of asthma symptoms. At Heaven's Little Angels PPEC, located in Poinciana FL, we have children who have different types of asthma with the necessary care they need.

Intermittent asthma

Intermittent asthma is mild. Symptoms can be twice a week. This type of asthma does not usually affect a child's daily activities and may include exercise.

Mild persistent asthma

Mild asthma is considered persistent with a frequency of 1 to 2 times a week. It doesn't have much nighttime interruption, so the child and parents will be able to rest most of the night. The child may have a good tolerance for physical exercise.

Moderate Persistent Asthma

Moderate asthma occurs daily. The shortness of breath can interrupt during the day and night. Severe asthmatic attacks may occur. Fast-acting inhaled asthma medicine is used every day.

Severe persistent asthma

Severe persistent asthma occurs daily and frequently. Disrupts the child's sleep and activities. Lung function is less than 60% of normal without treatment. The severe level of asthma is the least common.

If your child or a member of your family has asthma, get the appropriate therapy and aids that the doctor recommends. If you are looking for nursing care for your child because your child suffers from asthma you can contact Heaven's Little Angels PPEC, located in Poinciana FL. Open 7 days a week from 7am-7pm. Big enough to serve you, small enough to care.
