If there is no inhaler or breathing machine and it is not severe have them sip some sort of caffeine. Otherwise call 911.

If you know you are going to be with someone who has asthma - make sure they or you always have an inhaler nearby.

If you are not near a inhaler try a paper bag. i have this and it is horrible. Go to the hospital if you can and don't wait in line. you will go right in.

Try to get his inhaler... If thats not available..make him lie down .. dont let him get near dust or smoke..that would worsen the situation.. call for paremdics It is always advised to keep your inhalers with you if you are a asthmatic patiend
