Virginia Asthma Action Plan
Asthma Action Plans assist you and your child in managing their asthma. Action Plans are based on your child's asthma symptoms and may include his/her "personal best" peak flow readings and "zones" of lung function. They allow you and your child to manage most asthma exacerbation, as well as assist you in predicting a possible change in your child's asthma status.
Action Plans use a "step-wise" approach to asthma management. That means that you can "step-up" your child's medications when they are showing signs of a potential problem and you can "step-down" their medications when the problem passes.
Action Plans are particularly helpful in preventing multiple visits to the emergency room. It is very important that you and your child follow the plan as written by your asthma health care provider. Communication with your health care provider is an important part of using the Asthma Action Plan.
