The potential benefits of this research to public health include improved understanding of cultural factors in pediatric asthma self-management, improved self-management skills for children, and better asthma management skills for their parents. This could result in eased suffering and improved quality of life for millions of children and their families, and also reduce the economic burden borne by society in the forms of medical expenditures and lost productivity.
This proposal will create an interactive multimedia (IMM) program designed to support the self-management efforts of asthmatic children aged 5-10 years and their families. This behavior change program will be designed to promote self-management by (a) increasing child and caregiver knowledge about asthma, (b) encouraging compliance with medication protocols and environmental controls, and (c) increasing self-efficacy to create and implement an Asthma Action Plan.

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
