Your friend has a sister who is susceptible to asthma attacks. You have decided to describe to her the precautions her family should take to prevent her asthma attacks.
 
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease often linked to allergies, heredity and environment. It causes airway inflammation resulting in recurring attacks of wheezing, coughing, chest constriction and shortness of breath.

To prevent your sister's asthma attacks, you and your family must do your best to ensure that your sister's living environment is clean and well-ventilated. It is good to use exhaust fans or open the windows when showering and cooking. Remind your mother and maid about this when they are cooking. This is to let in fresh air.

Dust mites live in sheets, blankets, pillows, mattresses, soft furniture and carpets. So wash your bed sheets and blankets once a week. The same goes for stuffed toys. Wash them every week. After washing, dry them completely.

As for the carpets, rugs and furniture, tell your maid or whoever does the cleaning, to vacuum the house often. This is to prevent mites around. Mites can cause the children an asthma problem or it can aggravate your sister's asthma.

Do you have pets? If you do, you have to keep them outside. Having a cat or puppy indoors can cause your sister to have an asthma attack easily. Using cleaners, paints, adhesives and air fresheners is not advisable. This is because the chemical irritants found in these products can aggravate asthma. The best thing is to use these products less often and also use them when your sister is not around. If you use these products, try to make sure that the windows or doors are open and that you use an exhaust fan.

By following these instructions, you can prevent your sister's asthma attacks. In this way, you help her to recover from the illness.
