    According to the American Lung Association, more than seven million children suffer from chronic asthma.

    Get specific documentation requirements from Self-Administration of Asthma Medication in School, ISMS' updated medical legal guideline.

    For instance, your practice will need to provide students with a written statement (from a physician, physician assistant or advanced practice nurse) noting the name and purpose of the medication, and the times or special circumstances under which the medication is to be administered.
