    If a child is experiencing a sudden increase in asthma symptoms, , another  child can catch the symptoms if they are in close proximity

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Asthma symptoms are not contagious, so one child cannot catch the symptoms from another child. Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. These symptoms are triggered by various factors such as allergies, irritants, or exercise, but they cannot be transmitted from one person to another. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that another child can catch the symptoms if they are in close proximity to a child experiencing a sudden increase in asthma symptoms.

     Classroom activities that include trips to petting zoos, dissection of animal waste products, and care of pets will not trigger an asthma attack and are alright for students to participate in as long as everyone washes their hands and wears rubber gloves.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even with hand washing and wearing rubber gloves, activities such as trips to petting zoos, dissection of animal waste products, and care of pets can still trigger asthma attacks in students who are allergic to animals. These activities can expose students to allergens like pet dander or animal waste, which can cause respiratory issues and asthma attacks. Therefore, it is important to consider the individual's allergies and sensitivities before participating in such activities.
