Launched on World Asthma Day, 2 May 2017, My Asthma app enables New Zealanders to have asthma information at their fingertips.
The app features customizable Asthma Action Plans for both children and adults, to be completed with a health professional. In the event of an asthma flare-up, the user can simply open the app to view their important medical information. The plans can be easily shared electronically with family members, caregivers and sports coaches so they’re aware of what steps to take if asthma symptoms worsen.
The app also has vital asthma first aid information. In a situation where there is an asthma emergency, the acronym ASTHMA can help people remember the correct six steps to follow.
Additional asthma information around the different symptoms, medications and triggers is also included.
My Asthma app is available free in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
