Title Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month and Preventing Exposure to Airborne Triggers and Irritants
Introduction EMSL Analytical offers indoor environmental testing services to identify asthma triggers, allergens and respiratory irritants.

Cinnaminson, NJ,  May 9th , 2019

The entire month of May is recognized as Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. It is a time for those impacted by asthma and for organizations dedicated to asthma control and education, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to join together to increase awareness about the disease.

This is an important effort as this chronic lung disease affects over 26 million people living in the United States, including more than 6 million children according to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. As recently as 2016, asthma caused over 3,500 deaths in the U.S. and in the previous year was responsible for approximately 1.7 million visits to emergency rooms. Asthma is also expensive, costing the country over $50 billion each year.

“Asthma attacks can often be prevented if people with the disease avoid exposure to asthma triggers in their environment,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President, Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “This is one reason why Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month and its goal of educating people about the disease is so valuable. Asthma triggers can vary from person to person, but some of the more common ones include exposure to tobacco smoke, dust mites, outdoor air pollution, chemical irritants, cockroach allergen, cats and dogs, mold, nitrogen dioxide, and smoke from burning wood or grass.”

Fortunately, there are indoor environmental quality (IEQ) tests and easy to use test kits available to identify many of these asthma triggers so people can more easily manage their condition at home, school or work. One of the leading environmental asthma trigger, allergen and respiratory irritant testing providers is EMSL Analytical, Inc. Their laboratories specialize in providing comprehensive air and IEQ testing services, sampling supplies, test kits and air monitoring instruments.
