Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that affects millions of children worldwide. It is a leading cause of hospitalization and school nonattendance among children, and its impact on their quality of life can be significant (Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America). However, with consistent treatment and monitoring, children with asthma can lead normal and active lives.
Meet Emma, a 10-year-old girl diagnosed with asthma since 7. She experiences frequent coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath, especially during physical activities and at night. Her parents have been struggling to manage her symptoms with medication and lifestyle changes.
When Emma visits her pediatrician, the doctor conducts a thorough assessment of her condition, including lung function tests, allergy tests, and a review of her medical history. The doctor prescribes an asthma action plan that outlines the medications for treating her symptoms. The doctor also recommends that Emma and her parents use AsthmaGo™, a mobile app designed to help manage asthma symptoms.
Emma's parents download AsthmaGo™ and begin using it to track her symptoms, medications, and lung function. AsthmaGo™ reminds them when it is time for Emma to take her medication and prompts them to record her peak flow meter readings regularly, which she can do by using Spirolink, a smart, digital spirometer that seamlessly integrates with the AsthmaGo™ app.
Over time, Emma's parents notice that AsthmaGo™ provides them with valuable insights into her asthma management. They can easily see trends in her symptoms and peak flow readings, allowing them to adjust her treatment promptly. They also receive personalized alerts and recommendations based on Emma's data, helping them to identify and manage asthma flare-ups more effectively.
As a result of using AsthmaGo™, Emma's asthma is better controlled, and she experiences fewer symptoms and fewer hospitalizations. She can participate in sports and attend school regularly without disruptions. Her parents feel empowered to manage her condition and have peace of mind knowing that they can identify and treat any asthma flare-ups promptly.
“Children and young people with asthma need regular monitoring to maintain good asthma control, prevent asthma attacks and manage comorbidities” (Clinical & Experimental Allergy).
Emma's case illustrates the benefits of using AsthmaGo™ to manage children's asthma. Here are some of the advantages of using the app.
AsthmaGo™ is a valuable tool for managing children's asthma. By using AsthmaGo™, parents can more effectively manage their child's asthma, adjust treatment promptly, and prevent asthma flare-ups. AsthmaGo™ empowers parents to take an active role in managing their child's asthma, giving them confidence in identifying and treating asthma flare-ups. With proper treatment and management using AsthmaGo™, children with asthma can lead normal, active lives, free from the disruptions caused by this condition.
“Enhancing the quality of care, improving patients' adherence to treatment, and facilitating early recognition of lung function decline by means of e-Health solutions represent a revolutionary concept in asthma care. Managing asthma means taking into account patients' symptoms and environmental exposures, as well as medication use.” (The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology).
