Epidemiology

Asthma is the most common chronic illness facing children in the United States. The prevalence rates for pediatric asthma are at historically high levels

(Moorman et al. 2007). Morbidity and mortality remain inexplicably elevated, despite the considerable advances in the pharmacological management of asthma; this phenomenon is commonly referred to as a "modern health paradox." Prevalence of childhood asthma ranges from 5% to 15%, depending on the country (International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC) Steering Committee 1998), and asthma prevalence in children is increasing (Asher et al. 2006). The current prevalence rate in the United States is 8.5%, with male children having a higher prevalence than females (9.6% vs. 7.4%) and black children having a higher prevalence than white children (12.5% vs. 7.7%) (Moorman et al. 2007).
