Traduction en anglais : Asthma attacks in sentinel practices : epidemiological characteristics and seasonal patterns.
Sentinel-Workshop Hannover. Hannover DEU, 1992/04/29.
The continuous registration of asthmatic attacks by the Swiss Sentinel Network « Sentinella » since November 1988 has been preceded by a pilot study which tested the methods of data collection and analysis.
The original aim was (a) to use the incidence of asthmatic attacks as a possible indicator for the adverse effects of rising concentrations of air pollutants, and (b) to create a set of baseline data for future research in this field, i. e. data of asthmatic attacks for retrospective analysis of periods with increased levels of air pollution.
Here, morbidity characteristics and seasonal patterns of asthmatic attacks as registered from November 1988 to May 1991, will be presented only.
With regard to age and sex the data show that more than half of all asthmatic attacks occured in children 0-14 years of age.
