Abstract

The present study oi asthmatic children examined relationships among the frequencies of prior respiratory infections (i.e., those prior to the development of asthma) and recent (past year) respiratory infections, asthma severity, and the impacts of 12 common asthma triggers: airpollution, allergy problems, anger, cigarette smoke, excitement, highhumidity, high or low environmental temperature, laughter, nighttime hours, physical activity, respiratory infection, and stress or worry. Data on these variables were obtained through a survey in which 325 families completed questionnaires; 121 families had asthmatic children who were 2-20 years of age. Pearson correlational analyses revealed many significant positive correlations: The frequencies of prior and recent infections were correlated. The frequency of prior infections was correlated with the impacts of all asthma triggers except allergy problems, but the frequency of recent infections was correlated on ly with the impacts of air pollution, cigarette smoke, respiratory infection, and nighttime hours as triggers of asthma attacks. Asthma severity wascorrelated with the frequencies of prior and recent respiratory infections and with the impact of respiratory infection as an asthma trigger.
