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.
