Abstract

During childhood, exacerbation of asthma is the most common medical reason for admission to hospital in the UK. Each year 44,000 children are admitted to hospital in the UK with 40-50 children dying as a result of asthma [1]. Weather patterns and seasonality have distinct, measurable effects on the rates of hospitalisation for asthma.
