Asthma control in PreschoolersAccording to a review in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal), asthma is the commonest of all chronic diseases in children besides being a prime reason for hospital admissions yet there is lack of asthma control in 26 to 45 percent of children.

The review offered key insights to differentiate between transient asthma and chronic asthma in preschoolers and information on managing both types.

More research is required to examine the effectiveness of treatments in young children, as per the study authors.
