What You Need For School
Asthma Online Training Slide 14
Occasionally physicians will want students to use a rescue inhaler more frequently than twice per week during a short term respiratory infection. However, if it is in the absence of a physician’s note, than that student does not have good asthma management and should be referred back to their physician.
What Students need for School
- Medication Authorization Form (both sides completed)
- Students can carry their own inhaler with physician permission but must demonstrate correct technique
- Obtain correct inhaler from Parent/Guardian
- Notify School Nurse and Parent/Guardian if student is using inhaler too frequently (more often than twice a week) unless being used as prescribed prior to exercise.
