Storyboard Text

  • I can't wait for soccer tryouts today after school! 
  • Me too! It's going to be so much fun. 
  • I don't have my inhaler with me, but does it matter? Nothing is going to happen, right?
  • Later that day . . .
  • Welcome to soccer tryouts, everyone! Today you will have the chance to showcase your skills and have fun while doing so. 
  • People of all ages can get asthma, but it is more common between the ages 6-40.
  • I'm running out of breath pretty quickly, but I can do it! I'm getting into the team no matter what!
  • Intense phyiscal activity is very hard for people with asthma, especially if they don't have their inhaler. They run out of breath very quickly and that could be dangerous.
  • Woah, Jason. Are you okay there?
  • Yeah, I'm fine. Just got a little dizzy.
  • Some people that suffer from asthma might not take it seriously, so they do not take any precautions. It is very important to be prepared because an attack can happen very unexpectedly.
  • JASON!
  • Symptoms may include difficulty breathing, chest pain, and coughing among others. These are all warning signs that you may be experiencing an asthma attack. 
  • When you have an asthma attack, you have difficulty breathing. The muscles around your airways tigthen and they become inflamed. This causes shortness of breath, coughing, chest tightness, and others. 
  • In some cases, your asthma attack can go as far as fainting. If you do not use an inhaler or take precautions, your body will not get the oxygen it needs and it can lead to things like these. Therefore, ALWAYS PREPARE TO NOT RUN OUT OF AIR. For more information, visit aaaai.org.
