Asthma Help Site

There are other Asthma pages on the web and many are very informative but most are a little too technical and dry! This site will hopefully address that. We aim to give useful and relevant advice - Look out for the Asthma-Help-Box's.

Asthma Online

I am Ellen Stafford. I am 22 and live in Bath, England. I decided to create this site as I have had asthma since I was 7 years old and thought there was a need for a site where people can interact. I also wanted to help people who don't understand asthma what it is about. I am very lucky because I don't suffer too badly from asthma. I have it under control more. For the last year or so I have been taking a ventide inhaler which is grey. It contains some ventolin (blue inhaler) and some beclomethasone (brown inhaler). It works well. The main things that trigger my asthma off is stress and pollen. Web design is my hobby. I hope you enjoy looking around my site. Please check out the acknowledgements page as I have a few people to thank.

University of Dundee - Asthma Research Unit

The aim of the Unit is to produce high quality research in the treatment and management of patients with asthma. Until such a time as the laboratories produce a "cure" for asthma, we believe it is work such as ours that can best benefit the patient. By educating medical staff through dissemination of our findings we can help ensure that all patients with asthma receive the best possible care.

University of Edinburgh Occupational Asthma

"Occupational asthma is a disease characterised by variable air flow limitation and/or airway hyper-responsiveness due to causes and conditions attributable to a particular occupational environment and not to stimuli encountered outside the workplace" (Bernstein et al 1993).
