Case scenario


Kobi Monterey has grown up with asthma. Diagnosed at a very young age, he has been very diligent in knowing what triggers his asthma resulting in Kobi experiencing few episodes in recent years. Apart from his asthma, Kobi is a fit and well 25-year-old. However, this week Kobi has not been feeling well over the past few days and his father brought him to the emergency department this morning after Kobi experienced an asthma attack whilst at work. Kobi is quite distressed and breathing rapidly with a notable wheeze on expiration. He is unable to talk to you in full sentences, states he has a tight feeling in his chest and a continuous cough. You notice that his lips are cyanosed and he appears pale and sweaty




Kobi is a keen cyclist and rides his bike about 3 times a week with a local cycling group to which he belongs. He enjoys the social activities and has a good work-life balance. Kobi works as a carpenter with his father. He has aspirations of starting his own carpentry business and is feeling positive about his future. Kobi is often working in enclosed spaces exposed to fine wood dust particles, although he complies with all the necessary workplace health and safety regulations. Kobi indicates that he has needed to use his puffer more than usual and ceased using the preventer some time ago. When he runs out of his Ventolin puffer, he orders replacements online that are delivered to his home address for convenience. With such a busy schedule, Kobi has found it difficult to find time to schedule an appointment with his GP.
