Ways to help asthma-sufferers living with smokers

Suffering from asthma symptoms while living with a smoker can be brutal, and although it's best for smokers to avoid smoking in a house occupied by someone with asthma, new studies suggest that High-Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, cleaners may significantly help asthma-sufferers living with smokers.

A recent study at Johns Hopkins Children's Center looked at the effects of HEPA air cleaners among 115 children from inner-city Baltimore. The study went on for six months and found that children who used the HEPA cleaners showed improvements in their asthma symptoms.

The benefit amounts to approximately 33 less days of symptoms a year, Arlene M. Butz, an asthma specialist at Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, told Reuters Health. She also suggested that any person living in an apartment building with asthma, whether with a smoker or not, should consider an air purifier, as smoke elsewhere in the building can travel.

Fresh Air Pro carries only the best air purifying systems, such as the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This top-rated air purifier is ideal for those suffering with asthma or a wide range of allergens including pollen and dust.
