Living and Learning: First Aid

Thursday 21 April 2022

Last half-term, we learnt all about how the emergency services can help in certain situations.

We also learnt some basic first aid:

What to do if someone has an asthma attack

After our two weeks off for the Easter holidays, we asked Avneet how much she could remember. This was her response.

First, check if they have an inhaler.

If they don’t, I would check if they have one in school – maybe in the inhaler cupboard or at the office.

If not, call 999 and tell them what’s happened and where we are.

If they do have an inhaler, go and get it and give it to them and advise them to have 2 puffs every 2 minutes for up to 10 minutes.

I would also check on their breathing at the same time.

Awesome remembering, Avneet!

See if your child can remember what do if somebody has an asthma attack!
