Words from our Clinic

Head Injuries

Head injuries can occur to anyone at anytime, anywhere. If a person falls striking his or her head and he or she is unconscious, leave him/her where they landed and call for help. If bleeding has occurred hold pressure without moving the person (especially their head and neck). If the person is up and moving around, assess the person for signs and symptoms of a more severe injury.


The following symptoms can indicate an injury requiring further medical attention:


* dizziness

* headache

* nausea

* sensitivity to light

* poor concentration

* decline in academic ability

* personality changes

* irritability


As our students are playing more on bikes, skateboards and scooters, please encourage them to wear a helmet to prevent head injuries.

Allergies and Asthma

In the springtime, we see a lot of asthma and allergy occurrence. During this time of the year the pollen is elevated causing these to happen.


Allergies are found with the following symptoms: fatigue, headaches, sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes. Many of these have things that can make symptoms improve- cool cloth for the red, watery eyes, and cold pack for the headaches. Approximately more than 2 million days of school are missed every year due to allergies.


Asthma symptoms are also exacerbated this time of the year. Asthma is a condition in which your airway narrows and swells. This produces more secretions causing coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. If this occurs use medication that was prescribed for this. If this is a new condition- stay calm, keep the person up right and seek medical attention.

If your student needs more information regarding asthma in a way that makes it easier for them to understand, there is a book Taking Asthma to School by Kim Gosselin. A copy of this book can be signed out of the clinic
