Parental smoking influences factors such as beta-agonist use and increased risk for developing asthma in pediatric patients, according to results from a recent study published in Chest.
Researchers found there was a greater use of beta-agonist medication for children with mothers who smoked as well as a higher risk for a parent-reported asthma diagnosis. There was also a higher risk for emergency department visits, which was associated with maternal smoking.
