Asthma is the most common chronic disease in children, and acute exacerbations of asthma are one of the most common reasons for children to seek emergency care and require urgent hospitalization. Approximately half to two-thirds of children with asthma who seek emergency care can be classified as having mild respiratory distress, and between 2 and 5% have severe respiratory distress; the remainder has moderate respiratory distress.
