Ask an expert

Uh, yeah. It's not me-don't get your hopes up!

American Lung Association has an ask the expert "Lung Helpline." You can talk to a Registered Nurse or Registered Respiratory Therapist who has years of experience in the health care field. You can call the number on their website 1-800-LUNGUSA or 1-800-586-4872 and talk to someone. Or you can submit a question online, there is a link on their website to do that.

They can give you information on a variety of things, such as:

  • Asthma Education
  • Medication counseling
  • Medicare/Medicaid/private insurance issues
  • Smoking cessation
  • Doctor referral
  • Intensive care for babies, kids and adults
  • Lung cancer
  • Allergies
  • Emphysema
It sounds like if they don't already know about something, they can find out for you. From time to time, people ask me for advice on the blog. This would be a great way for people to get the help they need. I've had A LOT of experience with asthma (3 kids and 13 years worth of experience.) But their experts could answer all the technical questions for you.

I just get to share the fun every day stuff of what it's like to be a mom with asthma who has 3 kids with asthma. If any of you try out the Lung Helpline, I would be interested to see how it went for you. Let me know!
