Coping With Poor Air Quality
As the fires in Northern California continue, the air quality is poor. When air pollution is bad, it can irritate your eyes, nose, and throat, cause shortness of breath, aggravate asthma and other respiratory conditions.
Sutter Health’s Chief Quality & Safety Officer William Isenberg, M.D., offers the following precautions during this time of smoky or poor air:
- Stay indoors, if possible.
- Use air conditioning, if available.
- Keep hydrated. Aim for drinking an 8-ounce glass of water, eight to 10 times per day.
- If you have asthma, emphysema, or other respiratory diseases, use your maintenance puffers/inhalers. In addition, carry your rescue puffer/inhaler with you if you leave your home.
