Indoor environmental control strategies to manage asthma in children

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has outlined strategies to help control indoor environmental exposures among children with asthma, according to a report published in Pediatrics . Strategies include source removal, source control, and asthma education.

Children with asthma who are exposed to indoor allergens such as dust mites, rodents, cockroaches, and pet allergens tend to have worse asthma control and greater morbidity than children who are not exposed to these allergens. Therefore, Elizabeth C. Matsui, MD, MHS, FAAP, from the AAP's Section on Allergy and Immunology Executive Committee and the Council on Environmental Health, and colleagues published the report to raise awareness among pediatricians regarding the need to implement indoor environmental control practice measures.

 

Environmental control measures should be tailored to each individual child and are based on the underlying characteristics of the exposure. Individual control strategies have been shown to reduce asthma symptoms, have similar efficacy as controller medications, and are cost-effective in reducing the number of days with asthma symptoms.
