On-Demand Webinars on Asthma Management in Children
Asthma is the most common chronic lung disease in children. According to the CDC, it affects approximately 6 million children in the US. The principal aims of asthma management in childhood are to obtain symptom control that allows individuals to engage in unrestricted physical activities and to normalize lung function. This Asthma webinar series focuses on correct diagnosis, appropriate pharmacology, delivery systems and continual assessment.
The fall season is associated with an increase in episodes of poor asthma control and exacerbations for a child with asthma. Children returning to school are exposed to a variety of different triggers including viral infections, environmental triggers in schools and other exposures. With proper management and asthma control, most asthma-related exacerbations can be prevented. In this webinar, Dr. Abramson will discuss the topic of poorly controlled asthma, tips to minimize asthma flare-ups and tactics to maximize asthma control.
