My 3 (nearly 4) year old daughter has been diagnosed with asthma with symptoms originating from bronchialitis aged 9 weeks. Following a recent heavy cold she suffered a subsequent asthma attack and trip to a&e (low sats, high temp and heartrate of over 160). She is now waking at 4am every morning with outward signs of asthma (persistent non-productive cough) with normal sats of 97 and normal heart rate. After some research we have realised that this has become CVA.
We are trying breathing techniques that help her but at 3 years old, this can be difficult when she starts to panic and can't overcome her cough. We are giving her sabutamol inhaler although her sats are fine; we are unsure whether this is being beneficial.
Does anyone have any techniques/treatments for young children that they know to work?
As well as sabtamol reliever, she is also on montelukaust powders, clenil inhaler (2 puffs morning and night) and citirizine antihistimine.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
