Spring season, which is often referred with ideas of rebirth, renewal, re-growth and happiness, but for some it is a season of allergies. All the allergy sufferers have to face hard time during the season, but for a few others it is worse. For asthma sufferers, the season exaggerates their problem.
The time is terrible for all those parents, whose children suffer severe asthma and have to attend schools or are sent to child care.
However, to wave off their worries, Asthma Foundation ACT has set this week to be celebrated as National Awareness Week. The aim of this campaign will be to alert pre-schools and child care centers in regards of asthma and the season. Further, it will be reminding them of the emergency asthma management training, which has been informed to be compulsory and has to be implemented by 1 January, 2013.
Asthma Foundation Chief Executive Nathalie Maconachie asserted that the season's demand from Canberra's 35,000 asthmatics is more than that from others. The sufferers are left to tackle their condition with exaggerating symptoms.
She said, "A lot of people are triggered by pollen and certainly about 80 % of people with asthma also have allergic rhinitis". It has been emphasized that if symptoms of asthma are identified at the right time, it reduces the chances of hospitalization.
