iMedicalApps: CHANGE Asthma App Review | Medpage Today

Asthma is one of the most common chronic conditions in children and adults with a prevalence of over 8% in U.S. children and 7% in adults. This translates to more than 7 million children in the U.S. with asthma and 26 million total. In 2007, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute released the Expert Panel Report-3 for the management of asthma. These guidelines are still in effect with minor updates over the years. More recent guidelines are available from the Global Initiative for Asthma ( GINA ). Both guidelines have similar recommendations including the use of asthma action plans for example, though the GINA guidelines are more up to date with the current best evidence.

Both guidelines recommend the use of asthma action plans and include sample versions. Similarly, both recommend providers ensure proper inhaler use. Up to 30% of emergency room visits are due to improper inhaler use. The Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has recently released an app to educate parents and children on these critical asthma topics. Their new app called CHANGE Asthma includes links to YouTube videos describing the proper inhaler use, as well as educational games utilizing virtual reality. The games emphasize how to use an inhaler, identifying the severity of an asthma attack, and need for a rescue inhaler.

Because of the spectrum of severity within asthma, some people with asthma only rarely experience symptoms, usually in response to triggers, where as other more severe cases may have marked airflow obstruction at all times.
