List 5 potential asthma triggers
Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
In the USA, asthma is one of the leading causes of school absenteeism. On average, in a classroom of 30 children, about three are likely to have asthma. Asthma-friendly schools are those that make the effort to create safe and supportive learning environments for students with asthma. They should have policies and procedures that allow students to successfully manage their asthma.
