You notice one of your students is having trouble breathing; what do you do? Teachers and school personnel have the most contact with students and should be prepared for this type of situation, in the event it occurs. Asthma episodes can quickly turn into breathing emergencies, so we not only need to be ready to respond but know the right steps to take. This course will teach you about asthma emergencies, how to recognize the signs and symptoms of respiratory distress at each level, and how to respond to a student experiencing respiratory distress.
