Certain types of thunderstorms in spring or early summer in regions with high grass pollen concentrations in the air can cause life-threatening allergic asthma flare-ups in sensitised individuals, even if they have not had asthma before. Epidemic thunderstorm asthma can occur when such a storm travels across a region and triggers asthma in many susceptible individuals at once.
This information paper provides evidence-based guidance on identifying and managing patients at risk of thunderstorm asthma for GPs, asthma educators, practice nurses and pharmacists.
