If your doctor gives you the okay to use a humidifier, and it seems to help alleviate symptoms for your child, there are a few guidelines that our asthma coach recommends in order to keep your household safe:
It is reported that 80% of asthma patients have allergies to substances that can be found in the air. Because of this, minimizing exposure to airborne asthma triggers is an important part of keeping your child’s asthma symptoms under control. Today we’ll review how to keep three of the major types of airborne asthma triggers at bay in and around your home: pollution, pollen, and mold.
Minimizing asthma triggers in your child’s sleep space is an important step in controlling your child’s asthma. Because your child spends so much time in his/her bedroom, it is usually the one room that will affect your child’s asthma the most. By making some simple changes to your child’s sleep space, you can make a big impact in his/her asthma control.
Before reading any further, the most important thing I want to get across is an acknowledgement that it can be hard to get your child to take a new medication. As a doctor I had written prescriptions countless times, explained technique to parents and the child and the importance of taking it. But until it was my own 4 year old child getting a new inhaler with a mask, I didn’t realize how hard the non-medical part could be.
When it comes to controlling your child’s asthma, your doctor will likely prescribe a combination of controller and rescue treatments. There are a handful of different ways to deliver both controller and rescue medication, depending on the severity of your child’s asthma symptoms and your child’s ability to take medication with proper technique. The medication delivery methods in your child’s asthma management plan will likely fall under one of four categories:
When it comes to treatment options for your child’s asthma, most medications will fall under one of two categories: rescue medication, or controller medication. Rescue asthma medications, also known as “quick-relief” asthma medications, are used to treat asthma attacks when something triggers a flare-up, or when inflammation symptoms suddenly worsen.

A goal to breathe easier: Tueo Health and Evidation Health initiate recruiting parents of pediatric asthma patients for a pragmatic randomized clinical study
San Mateo, CA– Oct 18, 2017 – Evidation Health and Tueo Health have partnered together to quantify the clinical impact of a digital health solution on pediatric asthma management. They have recently started to virtually enroll parents of children with asthma into a 4-month randomized clinical study that is being conducted across the U.S.
One in ten children in the United States has asthma, and the prevalence is increasing. Pediatric asthma has been difficult to manage in the past, but new digital methods of passive monitoring hold promise in enabling parents to have greater influence over managing this chronic condition. Tueo Health has created a promising digital solution that combines sensor-based nocturnal monitoring, personalized analytics, a mobile education app, and an asthma coach to assist in better self-management. They looked to Evidation Health to run a robust clinical study to prove the impact of their solution on patient outcomes.
The research partnership brings together Tueo’s digital health solution for monitoring and aiding in-home management of pediatric asthma with Evidation Health’s technology platform, health outcomes research capabilities, and behavior data analytics expertise to accelerate and enhance pediatric asthma outcomes research.
“As a physician, I know how important it is to show that our home-based asthma management solution results in improved asthma control,” said Tueo Founder and CEO, Bronwyn Harris, MD. “Evidation Health’s technology platform makes it possible for us to quantify the impact of our solution on representative pediatric asthma populations across the nation, faster than conventional trials in medical centers. A prior study took us a year to recruit the same number of patients that we have already recruited in the first two weeks!”
“Tueo’s digital health solution will provide powerful insights into asthma management, because of the view it provides into the real life experience of patients,” said Deb Kilpatrick, CEO of at Evidation Health. “In partnering with Tueo, we are combining our areas of expertise to deepen the understanding of pediatric asthma and the families who struggle with it, while optimizing truly novel interventions that will drive better patient outcomes.”
