2019-09-17 02:47:36 | BioPortfolio


The occurence of influenza can be a factor of imbalance of asthma. Asthma patients are recommended for annual influenza vaccination . However there is insufficient vaccination coverage of asthmatic patients despite this recommendation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the rate of influenza vaccination coverage of children with asthma aged from 6 month to 17 years of age followed in pediatric pneumology consultation at the university hospital of Nancy.


Using a questionnaire, the investigator will estimate the percentage of the asthmatic patients vaccinated against influenza. He will then compare the 2 groups of vaccinated and unvaccinated patients : comparison of patients characteristics, comparison of asthma characteristics (severity, asthma control...). He will also analyze the causes of vaccination or non-vaccination.

Children who have reached maturity or the legal age of majority.

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).

Children with mental or physical disabilities that interfere with usual activities of daily living and that may require accommodation or intervention.
