Abstract

Management of pediatric asthma requires addressing environmental factors to reduce exposure to allergens and particulate matter including second hand smoke (SHS), N02 and ozone. Because children spend 80-90% of their time indoors at home and school, the indoor environment is the primary target of prevention of exposures associated with asthma exacerbations. This review will identify factors both in the indoor and outdoor environment that are associated with asthma exacerbations and provide evidence-based recommendations to reduce these exposures.
