Hot New York Summers May Aggravate Disabling Asthma

The summer heat and humidly can literally take your breath away if you suffer from disabling asthma. Although you should always follow your asthma action plan and contact your doctor immediately if you are having any difficulty breathing, here are some additional tips to help manage your asthma disability as the temperatures rise:

  • Don't wait to use your inhaler. Using your quick-relief inhaler at the first sign of symptoms may prevent a more serious asthma exacerbation and potential hospitalization. 
  • Gets lots of water. Keeping hydrated helps mobilize secretions and keeps your lungs clear.
  • Stay inside during the hottest part of the day. Staying inside or in an air-conditioned area alleviates some hot weather asthma symptoms and may also help if you have outdoor allergies. Save any outdoor activities for mornings and evenings.
  • Pay attention for ozone and allergen alerts. You can find these alerts in your local news. If the air quality is bad or the allergen levels are high, it is best to plan to stay inside.
  • Use a grill with an electric starter and avoid fumes. We all love to grill during the summer, but fumes from lighter fluid can make breathing difficult for those with an asthma disability. 

If you suffer from a potential asthma disability and are curious about applying for benefits, give the Bronx Social Security disability lawyers at Markhoff & Mittman a call today at 866-205-2415 or toll-free at 855-614-4351.

Testimonial

They kept my best interests at heart. Updates on a regular basis of the status of the case and returning of calls was much more prompt after I started dealing with the same lawyers and support team.
