STAND UP TO BREATHE EASY

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - B+S -

Are you one of the 2.5 mil­lion Aussies cur­rently liv­ing with asthma? Siob­han Bro­phy, CEO of the Na­tional Asthma Coun­cil Aus­tralia, has some ad­vice for you: never use your asthma in­haler while ly­ing down. “The cor­rect po­si­tion is to keep your chin up and the in­haler up­right,” she says. The rea­son? If you use your puffer in bed or ly­ing on the couch, it could stop the med­i­ca­tion from pen­e­trat­ing your lungs ef­fec­tively.
