Asthma Information for Caregivers

Whether your child is with a babysitter, at school, or with another guardian, providing asthma information for caregivers to follow will help to manage or prevent your child’s asthma outbreak. Dr. Katherine Rivera-Spoljaric, Pulmonologist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, highlights the importance of recognizing asthma triggers and having an action plan in place. The plan should include what symptoms to look for, a list of daily or as-needed medications and how to administer them, and a list of phone numbers for yourself and your doctor. Reach out to your doctor today to ensure you have an asthma action plan in place.
