Asthma not adequately controlled in 65% of children17th September 2009
A new survey has revealed that asthma is not adequately controlled in 65% of children who are affected by it.
ICM Research carried out the Room to Breathe survey among 1,300 parents and found that while only 6% of parents had rated their child’s asthma as severe, 23% had been taken to an emergency department in the previous 12 months. Nearly 60% of parents were “quite concerned” or “very concerned” about their child taking a steroid, while the biggest concerns related to the possible side-effects and potential long-term damage.
