Respiratory Conditions in Hurricane Season
More than one million people in Florida are affected by asthma. Joseph Scott, Chief of Emergency Medicine at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says if you are an asthmatic, you probably know what your triggers are.
“The weather is changing, there is dirt out there, leaves, dust, people with chainsaws, burning issues, so asthma is a huge problem and people with lung problems tend to have issues during storms,” he points out.
It is important that you have enough medication to treat your respiratory condition during hurricane season to prevent serious situations.
