ASTHMA IN CHILDREN: NEW THERAPIES
Childhood asthma is a disorder that involves episodes of attacks interspersed with asymptomatic periods. It is characterized by the inflammation of the airways (bronchi) and as a response it produces an increase of the bronchial sensitivity and causes obstruction.
International multicenter studies claim that asthma is the most common chronic disease in childhood, affecting a spectrum of this band which is estimated at 5-10%.
The treatment of childhood asthma, is based on three pillars: prevention, drug treatment and education, both for the child and the family members. For prevention experts recommend, among other measures, to avoid exposure to allergens or reduce exposure with environmental control measures through adjunctive therapies such as the use of pure air.
Dr. Anna Cisteró, Chief of Allergy and Pulmonology, Dexeus University Institute, Barcelona, recommends the use of pure air through BUBBLE | PURE AIR technology for asthmatic patients.

Furthermore, Zonair3D has recently created an exclusive pure air bubble for children where child can enjoy a space to breathe clean air while they have fun playing with their friends.
