Asthma Emergency Kits
Asthma Emergency Kits are intended for the convenient, safe storage of blue reliever medication and unopened single-person-use spacers and face masks. They are to be accessed and administered by those who have a duty of care in schools, childcare sites and other workplaces.
Note: The contents of the kit (blue reliever medication, spacers and masks) are not intended for general all-purpose every-day use, rather the management of an asthma emergency.
You are encouraged to routinely check that each Asthma Emergency Kit;
- is in sound condition,
- contains an in-date blue reliever puffer,
- contains two unopened single-person-use spacers, (+ two masks for children 0-5 years),
- contains instructions for use and an Emergency Kit Log to record medication use
Contact your local Asthma Foundation via the 1800 ASTHMA Helpline (1800 278 462) if you need to order replacement spacers or masks, require a replacement bag, or to discuss how to purchase blue reliever medication for your Asthma Emergency Kit.
