This preview shows page 4 - 7 out of 12 pages.

Do you have any other respiratory issues besides asthma? No, just the asthma. Have you been hospitalized in the past? Well, before this I went to the hospital a bunch of times when I was little, for asthma attacks. This is the first time I've been in the hospital since I was probably sixteen, though. Do you have general allergies? What are your allergy symptoms? What do you use to treat your allergies? Do you use tobacco? No. I think it's gross. Do you use marijuana? Um, yeah, I've done that before. In high school, and after high school... I definitely don't anymore, though. When was the last time you used marijuana? I haven't smoked pot since I was twenty or twenty-one. Are you exposed to secondhand smoke?
