Asthma action plans & emergencies in children

Thumbnail image of asthma action plan

It is important that your child has a good asthma action plan. An action plan describes what to do in various situations, such as when your child has mild, moderate, or severe symptoms. Give copies of the plan to your child's school, and to other people who look after your child. That way, everyone will know what to do in an emergency.

This child asthma action plan was developed by Christchurch child health specialists. Click the image to the right to see a larger version of the child asthma action plan.
