Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children. This respiratory disease now aects 1 in 10 children around the world! This illness is accountable for 250,000 annual deaths worldwide and is the third leading cause of hospitalization among children in the US.
Asthma treatment is characterized by a daily controller medication and an emergency treatment (quick relief medicine like Ventolin). Long-term controller treatments help stabilize the disease and are the basis for an improved daily health condition for asthmatic children!
However, 50% of this controller medication is not properly followed, leading to discomfort, attacks and other health complications.
