A message from Hillingdon Children’s Asthma Team:

During this difficult time facing Covid-19, it is important to ensure your child’s asthma remains well controlled and that you know when you should seek medical help.

  1. If your child has asthma and uses a preventer inhaler (Beige/ Brown/ Orange/ Red/ Purple/Pink) please make sure they are using this twice a day EVERY DAY as prescribed, even when well.  REMEMBER ALWAYS USE WITH A SPACER.
                         

     
  2. If your child needs their reliever inhaler (Blue) more than twice a week, for more than two weeks, please book a medical review with your GP/asthma nurse.
     
  3. If your child needs 10 puffs of their reliever (Blue) inhaler and are no better or are wheezing again within 4 hours, GIVE ONE FURTHER SET OF 10  PUFFS and seek urgent medical review at your nearest A&E
     
  4. Please do not delay seeking medical attention when needed.
