Asthma: How to halt the crisis?

Parents wait too long to treat asthma in children
Parents wait too long to treat asthma in children

According to the results of a study conducted by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, published in Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, parents wait too long to treat asthma in children.

Parents easily identify the symptoms of asthma in their children such as cough, shortness of breath, discomfort and pain, respiratory or behavioral signs, but they do not know how to use albuterol, a bronchodilator that helps relax the muscles in the airways.

Thus, parents have the opportunity to intervene earlier to reduce the intensity of asthma attacks and their children to avoid going to the emergency room regularly.

"Whenever children have a crisis, most parents notice warning signs. But despite this, they do not give adequate treatment to their children. If the parents cared for with albuterol earlier, they could manage the crisis at home and avoid a trip to the emergency," said Jane Garbutt, Director of the Washington University Pediatric and Adolescent Ambulatory Research Consortium.
