How do you know if you have the right children's asthma plan? Duration: 1 minute, 2 seconds

If your child has been diagnosed with asthma, it is very important for you and your physician to have an asthma plan in place.

And an asthma place is a written plan of what the parent should do in case of future bouts of asthma attacks. And these will revolve around the correct and efficient administration of the medications that the child is on.

In many of these cases, the parent becomes a very important player in the recognition of the symptom and the early and accurate administration of medication.

If your asthmatic child is experiencing an acute asthma attack, it is extremely important to seek immediate medical care. And this may be either visiting the nearest emergency room or of course by phoning 911.
