An asthma trigger is a thing, activity or condition that makes asthma worse. When you encounter a trigger it can cause a sudden worsening of symptoms, often called an asthma attack, episode or flare-up.

Common asthma triggers include respiratory infections, allergens, irritants, exercise and emotions. Knowing what causes your asthma symptoms is an important step toward controlling your asthma. Allergy testing may help you identify your triggers. Your healthcare provider can help you recognize what makes your asthma worse, and help find simple solutions to reduce and avoid asthma triggers.

Do you know what your causes your asthma symptoms to start? Triggers can vary from person to person and what affects one person may not affect another.

08/24/2023

When your child is sick or hurt, it can be difficult to tell whether an urgent care or emergency department is the best choice. In making that decision, it is important to stay calm and recognize the difference between a medical emergency and a medical situation where a different type of care may be more appropriate.

Nonemergency Medical Situations:

As a first step in nonemergency situations, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends calling your pediatrician's office—your child's "medical home"—to discuss your child's needs. Pediatricians are very accustomed to taking phone calls at all times and can often deal with problems over the phone.

Emergency Medical Situations:

A trip to the emergency room is the best place for treating severe injuries or life-threatening illnesses. As a rule, if your child can walk, talk, interact, and play, chances are whatever she or he has is not an emergency.

If your child is experiencing a true medical emergency, visit a hospital emergency room or call 911 immediately. If you aren't sure whether it is a true emergency, never hesitate to call your pediatrician's office-even if you know the office is closed.

A true emergency is when you believe a severe injury or illness is threatening your child's life or may cause permanent harm. In these cases, a child needs emergency medical treatment immediately. Discuss with your child's pediatrician in advance what you should do in case of a true emergency.

Even very young children can be taught about 911 and what to do in an emergency, as well as when not to call 911. 911 for Kids was created to make it easier for parents and teachers to educate children on when to call 911 and when not to, as a way to reduce the huge number of nonemergency calls for assistance. These resources can also provide information on how to teach a child how to call 911 using a cell phone, even if they don’t know the phone’s access code.

The site has many resources for educators and parents, including a free PDF, “Teaching Kids About Emergencies,” which includes guidance on how to prepare kids so they know what to do in the event of a medical emergency or fire as well as other events such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, severe winter storms and thunderstorms. The PDF includes a printable form for Emergency Phone Numbers, which you can post on the refrigerator or another place your child will easily see it.

9-1-1 For Kids is a non-profit organization focused on 911 emergency dialing education for kids and adults.

Protecting children from exposure to lead is important to their lifelong health. Lead is a naturally occurring metal that can be found in the air, soil, dust and paint inside or outside of some homes and other buildings built before 1978. Lead is toxic to everyone, but because their bodies are still developing and growing rapidly, lead is especially toxic to unborn babies and young children less than six years of age. No level of lead in the blood has been found to be safe but lead toxicity can be prevented.

The IDOH Lead and Healthy Homes Division tracks the prevalence of lead exposure in Hoosier children and supports local health departments and community partners in promoting primary prevention efforts to minimize exposure and the resulting health risks through education, proactive screening, treatment, case management, and the remediation of lead hazards.
