Guidelines for participating in sports activities at school while managing asthma.
  1. Ensure your asthma is well-controlled by following your prescribed medication regimen :  Stick to your prescribed asthma medications to effectively manage your condition and prevent exacerbations. Consistency is key to maintaining good control over your symptoms.
  2. Communicate with your coach and teammates about your condition, so they can provide support when needed :  Keep your coach and teammates informed about your asthma. Their understanding will enable them to assist you if you face any challenges during practices or games, fostering a supportive team environment.
  3. Always have your inhaler nearby and take a few minutes to warm up before diving into the game :  Ensure your inhaler is easily accessible during games and practices. Having it nearby guarantees quick relief in case of unexpected asthma symptoms, allowing you to stay engaged in the game. Prioritize a thorough warm-up routine before participating in any physical activity.
  4. Pay attention to weather conditions, avoiding extreme cold or humid environments :  Be mindful of weather conditions, especially extreme cold or high humidity. These factors can trigger asthma symptoms. Adjust your activities accordingly or take preventive measures to minimize exposure.
  5. Stay hydrated and take breaks as necessary to catch your breath :  Stay properly hydrated to maintain optimal lung function. Take short breaks when needed to catch your breath and prevent overexertion. Balancing activity with rest is essential for managing your asthma during sports.

With proper preparation and self-care, anyone can excel in sports while keeping their asthma in check!
