If the victim has a personal written asthma action plan, then that plan should be followed.
If there is no action plan in place, then use the following Asthma First Aid plan.
If a victim has any signs of a severe asthma attack, call an ambulance straight away and follow the Asthma First Aid Plan while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.
Asthma First Aid plan
If a spacer is not available, simply use the inhaler. Use the victim’s own inhaler if possible. If not, use the first aid kit inhaler if available or borrow one from someone else.
No harm is likely to result from giving a reliever inhaler to someone without asthma.
If oxygen is available, it should be administered by a person trained in its use.
If victim becomes unresponsive and not breathing normally, commence resuscitation.
