my sons school know he is asthmatic, he has a full care plan done by school nurse, they have his inhalers in the classroom etc and the teachers and TA's are ""first aid trained""!!!
well, everytime son has had an asthma attack at school (4 since sept) they have given him his inhalers and let him sit quietly for half hr or so AND THEN rung me to say he has had an asthma attack and can i go and fetch him as he stills feels wheezy/chesty! he is missing out on sooo much school it is ridiculous.
everytime he has had an attack (at home or school) he has ended up off school for a week with a chest infection/croup etc - the attack is the 1st sign of an underlying problem.
