For the safety of your family, this information is intended for use by North Seattle Pediatrics patients exclusively.
Repeated attacks of wheezing, chest tightness, and difficulty breathing. This happens when the lower airways in the lungs are triggered by viruses, allergens, exercise, cold air, or irritants to tighten up. Viruses are the most common triggers for young children.
If your child has been given a prescription for an asthma inhaler or nebulizer in the past and you think your child needs it now, use it first and then call us as directed below.
