Asthma is the most common medical condition among children who are hospitalized with the flu. Keep your child healthy this flu season.
Follow these tips to help ensure your child feels good, can get out and play and not miss school while managing their asthma symptoms.
As a school health professional, you know the children in your school who are challenged by asthma and are often on the front line of helping them manage their condition. When pediatric asthma is in-check, kids can spend more time in class actively learning and participating. When it’s not, asthma can be a significant disruption to their education. In fact, asthma is the leading cause of missed school days among children ages 5-17.
Children's Physician Access is available 24/7 with a representative on the line throughout the call to assist with referrals, consultations and admissions and to provide general information.
And that's especially true when it comes to treating pediatric asthma. It's our goal to help you and your child understand as much as possible about asthma. Once you understand your child's asthma the easier it will be to control.
Choosing where to bring your child for asthma care is a major decision. You need all the information you can get. And you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.
