Dr Amy McLean on 2GB for Asthma Awareness Week
With Spring upon us many of us may be dreading the onset of hay fever symptoms - itchy nose, itchy and watering eyes and sneezing and even breathing problems.
In fact you may have asthma. This week is Asthma Awareness Week recognising that 1 in 9 Australians have asthma and 34% report it affects their daily living.
Astonishingly close to 40,000 Australians are actually hospitalised each year due to an asthma attack or acute asthma symptoms.
How to manage it and the latest cutting edge treatments that can provide relief is a topic close to the heart of San respiratory physician Dr Amy McLean.
