Asthma morbidity and mortality are on the rise. The increase of
asthma in the pediatric setting is startling. Asthma is noted to
have a higher prevalence in minority and low- income individuals
compared with their more advantaged peers. With this increase in
asthma morbidity and mortality in Hispanic children the health care
profession is left with the task of identifying exacerbating
factors. Research studies have lacked in identifying social factors
which may contribute to this startling trend. This study identified
numerous barriers, both intrinsic and extrinsic to the health care
system which are found to contribute to this rise in asthma rates
in Hispanic children. By identifying the extent of individual
barrier influences, facilitators can be identified to improve
overall asthma outcomes in this high risk population. This is a
must read for the health care professional.
