The asthma nurse came to speak to us today. She explained what asthma is and showed us how the airways tighten with a little toy version of our airways. She showed us all the different types of asthma inhalers and especially when to use the brown and blue ones. She also showed us how young children use inhalers.
She talked about how to use the inhaler properly, so that none of the puff escapes.
She explained that certain weather conditions can hamper our breathing but that exercise is very good for us. If we are doing exercise or running in races or playing competitive sports then we need to bring an inhaler.
She was very interesting and it opened our eyes to how many people connected to school (pupils, parents, teachers, relations etc use an inhaler).
