Asthma 411

  • Azle ISD has entered into a partnership with Cook Children's, JPS, and UNTHSC to participate in Asthma 411.

    This program allows Azle ISD nurses to administer emergency albuterol to students who are experiencing an asthma emergency and do not have medication available on campus. This allows immediate treatment for a student that may have previously required the time and expense of a 911 medical call from the school to transport for treatment, or a parent taking the student to an emergency room for treatment.

    If a student is experiencing an asthma emergency, a phone call will be made to the parent, a message will be left if they can't be reached, and emergency albuterol will be administered to the student. The school nurse will determine if the parent needs to pick up the student for further emergency care or the student can safely return to class.
