An action plan for children with asthma and their parents during an acute attack

One of the most important points is the creation of a plan of written instructions for the behavior of the child and his parents during an attack of bronchial asthma. Written instructions to the patient and his parents are given directly by the attending physician. A possible action plan is presented in Figure 2. For better interaction and understanding, it is necessary to increase the knowledge of patients and parents about bronchial asthma. It is important that the patient represents the mechanism of the development of the attack, its possible causes, symptoms – harbingers of the attack, was able to perform peak flowmetry, and evaluate the results, was trained to use an inhaler, a nebulizer, knew the drugs that should be used in the initial stages of therapy. All this knowledge can be obtained by studying at the Asthma School or in an individual conversation with a doctor.
