Bronchial Asthma: Management

The management of bronchial asthma focuses on controlling and alleviating symptoms to improve a patient's quality of life. This involves two key components: long-term control and quick-relief (rescue) medications. Long-term control medications, often in the form of inhaled corticosteroids or leukotriene modifiers, are used to reduce airway inflammation and prevent asthma symptoms. Quick-relief medications, such as short-acting beta-agonists, provide immediate relief during asthma attacks. Patients also benefit from creating an asthma action plan, which includes monitoring symptoms, recognizing triggers, and knowing when to seek medical help. A collaborative approach between healthcare providers and patients is essential in tailoring the treatment plan to individual needs and ensuring optimal asthma management.
