Heightened awareness crucial for Improving paediatric respiratory care in India: expert

Kolkata, May 26 (UNI) Insufficient awareness about asthma, a respiratory disease affecting nearly 7.9pc of Indian children, and misconceptions and perceived myths associated with its cornerstone treatment inhalation therapy, have resulted in many cases going undiagnosed and even untreated, according to an expert.
All this ultimately results in poor control of asthma, a widespread non-communicable disease and the most common chronic condition among children with 80pc of asthmatics experiencing symptoms during the first six years of their life.
"Paediatric asthma can be a distressing condition for both the child and its family. It is a chronic condition that requires ongoing and often intensive management to keep symptoms under control. Early diagnosis and proper treatment can help reduce the frequency as well as severity of the condition," said child specialist Subhasis Roy.
