With the school year quickly approaching, here's a checklist to make sure your student with asthma is adequately prepared.
1. Develop an Asthma Management Plan: All students with asthma should have a written Asthma Management Plan that details personal information about the child’s asthma symptoms, medications, any medicine required before exercise and provides specific instructions about what to do if an asthma episode does not improve with prescribed medication.
Each students and parents should discuss their Asthma Management Plan with their teachers, school nurse, coaches, bus drivers, babysitters/daycare staff and anyone else who has regular contact with the student throughout their school day. Discuss your child’s specific triggers and typical symptoms so that they can be prepared to effectively assist your child should an asthma episode occur outside of your presence.
