We are entering the most dangerous time of year for children with asthma.
Researchers from the University of North Carolina found asthmatic children were over two times more likely to go to the ER in the fall than in the summer months. There was a threefold increase in outpatient visits in October and November, and hospitalizations were three and a half to five and a half times higher.
