Karine explains what triggered her last asthma attack.

The last minor asthma attack that I had was in August and it was an absolutely environmentally triggered situation. I was camping in the true desert scenario in the middle of a dust storm, and I had an asthma attack. But the super cool thing was it was extraordinarily minor on the scale of asthma attacks. And again, if I rewind four years, put myself in that same situation, and it would have been a horrific asthma attack. I would have had to have been med evaced out in a helicopter on oxygen, kind of a scenario.

And in this case, despite the fact that I was in the middle of a desert in a horrendous dust storm, ready to have a whirlwind kind of asthma attack, I used my inhaler three times, relaxed for half an hour, and I was fine, and that was the end of it.
