The aim of asthma treatment is to control the patient’s complaints and to continue the patient’s life as normally as possible. Asthma symptoms can be controlled by administering appropriate medications and avoiding asthma triggers. Asthma treatment is carried out according to the recommendations in the guide, which has been prepared with the participation of national and international experts and is updated every year. The most significant innovation in international and national asthma guidelines is the recommendation to use inhalers (rescuers) together with the main therapeutic drug, inhaled cortisone, rather than using them alone in the treatment of asthma. With treatment, a significant proportion of asthmatics are able to continue their daily lives, including work and school, without any limitations due to the disease. Most asthma drugs are drugs used by inhalation and in this way they create the desired therapeutic effect in the immediate airways with fewer side effects. Proper use of these devices (inhalers) as recommended is very important for effective treatment.
