Asthma is the most common chronic disease in children in Taiwan and an important factor related to their absence from school. Proper exercise not only can decrease the frequency of asthma attacks, but also can reduce absence from school. However, few studies focus on exercise in asthmatic children in Taiwan. Therefore, a review of the literature was conducted to gather information for developing exercise guidelines, including a list of exercise precautions, for asthmatic children. Findings will help clinical nurses and school educators understand exercises and provide them with practical instructions for teaching such exercises to asthmatic children.
