Thunderstorm Asthma

The devastating thunderstorm asthma event in Melbourne during last year’s pollen season highlighted the risk for people with underlying breathing conditions.  People with asthma and hay fever were particularly vulnerable.  Asthma Australia has worked closely with the authorities in Victoria and now provides a thunderstorm asthma module in their online training so school staff can be prepared for such an event should it occur in school time.  You can help by ensuring your child’s Asthma Plan is up to date and the school has an in-date blue reliever puffer and spacer for them in case of an emergency.

Kiss myAsthma App for young people

Launched on World Asthma Day, 2 May, Kiss My Asthma is an app for young people with asthma developed by medical experts at the University of Sydney with input from focus groups of young people throughout the process.  The app helps young people with medication reminders, tracking symptoms and attacks to inform their doctor and setting goals (with help from the app’s monsters).  Kiss My Asthma is free from the App Store and Google Play.
