Availability of flu vaccines, medications in school can keep children with asthma healthy

Kids need flu shots to prevent asthma flares, and medications available in school to keep 86 percent in class, according to two studies being presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) Annual Scientific Meeting.

The first study looked at outcomes for kids with asthma following passage of a bill in Missouri which provides schools with equipment and access to medications to treat asthma. It also allows trained school employees to administer bronchodilator treatments to students when needed.

"Schools that implemented the RESCUE program (Resources for Every School Confronting Unexpected Emergencies) had great success in being able to send kids back to class," says allergist Manoj Warrier, MD, ACAAI member and study lead author. "Getting kids back to class rather than sending them home or to the emergency department creates improved health for our students and better academic performances, a win-win."

In the 2013-2014 school year, 90 schools used the equipment 1,357 times. That resulted in 86 percent of students going back to class, 11 percent going home and 1 percent being sent to the ED. In the 2014-2015 school year, 124 schools participated, with use of the equipment increasing, and similar percentages of kids going back to class. Participating schools were supplied with nebulizers, chambers, additional supplies, and access to free albuterol. When RESCUE supplies were used, school nurses logged the outcomes. The RESCUE program was developed by the St. Louis chapter of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

What people with asthma should use nebulizers or oxygen at home?

So I have moderate to severe asthma, I've been using a pro-air rescue inhaler for my asthma, but now I have two new medications. They are flovent and ventollin HFA with the meter counter. My question is what if this doesn't work? What then? What people


Your dr. knows if you need at home oxygen or a nebulizer, if you have told your dr. everything. Your pulse0ximeter reading should be considered, also. I do have a nebulizer at home and I am on 24/7 oxygen at home. I bought a pulseox machine, as well.

Severe asthma relief.....?

I've been off work for 8 weeks with severe asthma....I have oxygen, nebulisers and steroids at home. I'm under a thoracic consultant to find out what is wrong. Anyone got any ideas on how to get some temporary relief as I'm so fed up with being stuck


I can't give you an instant relief method, but I do know of ways to bringing it down. There is a few things I found out about asthma that was interesting. My late wife had cystic fibrosis and asthma, so I constantly looked around for ways to ease her

I have severe asthma too. I'm on Singular, Albuterol, and Advair. I have had to miss work too because of a severe attack. I just laid around the house, slept, read magazines, and played on the computer. My doctor did tell me once that black coffee
