Asthma Care Shifts Goal to Life Without Limits

Too often, physicians dont realize how severe symptoms are, says Dr. Jill Halterman, a pediatric asthma specialist at the University of Rochester. With children, their own parents may underestimate symptoms. Its more complicated than denial: When wheezing while running or waking up at night coughing has been routine for years, people may not know to complain. It may be part of what they view as normal, says Halterman, who is studying the control gap. Were hoping we can change that so the goal can really be for the child to have no symptoms and no limitations on activities.
