Infographic: Fall season can trigger asthma in nation’s 7 million kids

September and the fall season can cause flare-ups in asthma, especially for the 7 million children afflicted with the respiratory condition.

Dr. Giovanni Piedimonte of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine says that when school gets underway, physicians see a significant increase in patients suffering asthma attacks. Students are exposed to an increase in germs and are more susceptible to upper respiratory infections, he says. This, in turn, inflames airwaves and can trigger asthma attacks.

Changes in weather are also to blame for a spike in asthma attacks among children and adults. This infographic says 25 million people in the U.S. suffer from asthma. Based on the following stats, communicators can develop some new marketing and messaging for patients:

  • An asthma diagnosis is five times more likely to occur before age 20 than in later years.

  • Lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking and living in urban areas are linked to asthma.

  • Exercise in cold, dry conditions often cause flare-ups.
