Shake It and Take It- Asthma Control for Kids
In this six-minute video "Shake it and Take it: An Asthma Control Video for Kids," Lisa DiStefano, MSN, C.P.N.P., a nurse practitioner for the University of Maryland Hospital for Children's Breathmobile program presents an overview of asthma, including its symptoms and available treatment options.
In addition, several Breathmobile patients also appear in the video to talk about what it's like to live with asthma. These children describe what it feels like to experience an asthma attack and talk about how their medications help them control their symptoms. These children know that as long as they "shake it and take it," the number of asthma attacks they experience will continue to go down as their quality of life continues to improve.
