Knowledge Of Asthma For Teachers Can Help Children

The teacher’s knowledge of asthma and how to deal with an asthmatic attack// in children can go a long way in making life comfortable for the children who suffer from asthma.

Asthma is a leading cause of death and disability in children younger than 17 years old. It is one of the leading causes of hospitalization in school-age children.

As students go back to school, there could be plenty of asthma triggers waiting for them, the researcher had said. Buildings without air conditioning often have open windows that create more problematic dust. The odor from the particles released by dry eraser markers and chalk dust also are triggers.

Dobey stresses the importance of having an asthma treatment plan on file for asthmatic students. The plan should include contact information for the child’s doctor and a list of the child’s medications, such as inhalers or spacers, and how to properly use them. School employees also should be trained on how to reco
