Issues

  • Some children will encounter difficulty breathing and become breathless after physical exertion
  • Many will need to take medication on a regular basis.
  • Some children may encounter some difficulty with concentration or learning at school.
  • Some children will have a susceptibility to bruising or bleeding more easily than other children and will need to avoid contact sports – the child’s paediatrician will recommend what physical activity the child can undertake.
  • Some children may present as being ‘blue’ in appearance. This is as a result of oxygen deficiency and will need to be monitored closely. These children are susceptible to the cold.
