School Nurses and Asthma

The American Lung Association's Open Airways for Schools (OAS) is an asthma management program for school children aged 8-11 who have been diagnosed with asthma. OAS consists of six 40-minute group lessons for children with asthma held during the school day. OAS uses group discussion, stories, games and role play to help students take part in the program. 

Watch this short video from an Open Airways For Schools facilitator on why the program is so important to young asthma sufferers.
