We spent last night in hospital with my nearly 3yo having what I assume you call an asthma attack? The hospital were great at educating me but the action plan given to me says "when he has a severe attack, go immediately to hospital".
What marks it as a severe attack? I felt what he has the other night was pretty severe (blue around mouth, very rapid breathing, signs of struggling for air between ribs and on neck, wheezing) but they managed it quite quickly in hospital...(one hour of 4x6 ventolin and 4x4 of some other inhaler, oxygen and prednisolone)
I'm terrified as I know asthma can actually be a deadly illness.
