If you, as a non-sufferer, have ever witnessed an asthma suffering enduring an asthma attack, you will know how terrifying an experience it can be. If you have never experienced an attack yourself, it is only natural for you to imagine the worst and panic. So, if you have a friend or family member who is prone to asthma attacks, read through this quick guide on to how best to help them when an attack sets in:

-- Keep Calm.

This may sound obvious, but it is important. Asthma attacks are often distressing for the sufferer, and any anxiety or panic can actually make an attack worse. Therefore, if you are with someone when they suffer an attack, it is essential that you keep calm and don't panic.

-- Look For Their Inhalers.

Most asthmatics have the very tools they need to quell an attack close at hand: their inhalers. Asthmatics tend to keep these handy, so if you are going to the home of an asthmatic or going out in public with them, ask them where their inhalers are located - so you can grab them at short notice.

-- Monitor The Situation

In rare instances, you may need to call for medical assistance if someone you know is suffering from an asthma attack. Call for emergency help if any of the following occur:

- Inhalers and other medications do not seem to be helping.
- The sufferer loses consciousness.
- The sufferer cannot use their medication and thus the attack is continuing for longer than it should.

Just be alert, aware and calm - and the vast majority of situations will need no outside help.
