MIAMI, FL – May 8, 2014 – Some of the busiest airport travel days are among us, starting at the end of May with Memorial Day throughout the summer. It is estimated that more than 300 million people suffer from asthma worldwide and an estimated 209 million people will fly globally during the summer of 2014. In observance of National Asthma Awareness Month, Florida Center For Allergy & Asthma Care (FCAAC) offers those traveling with asthma, a checklist for comfortable travel all summer long.
Tips for Traveling with Asthma
The key to dealing with asthma is prevention. “Among my asthmatic patients, I’ve noticed that stress and improper planning are the worst aggressors during summer travel, even more so than the change of environment to where they are going.” said Dr. Zevy Landman of Florida Center For Allergy & Asthma Care. “Those who refill their prescriptions before they leave, carefully plan activities and accommodations, and give themselves extra time to arrive at the airport, experience less unnecessary complications.”
