Introduction, the management of asthma in young children is associated with many challenges. The diagnosis could be difficult as wheezing can occur in this age without asthma and confirmatory lung function tests are difficult to perform.1 Also, many medications for asthma are poorly studied in very young children.
The diagnosis of asthma in young children is based largely on symptom patterns (wheeze, cough, breathlessness, activity limitation, and nocturnal symptoms) and frequency, combined with a clinical assessment of family history and physical findings. Around half of preschool wheezers become asymptomatic by asthma school age irrespective of treatment.1,2. Asthma guidelines have been asthma developed to increase the awareness of asthma among health professionals, to improve asthma management, to evaluate published reports on asthma and to promote international collaboration in asthma research.3 Paper-based implementations are by still the most popular approach but information technology.
