Economic Evaluation in Child Health

Asthma is the most common chronic disease of childhood and the incidence is increasing. This chapter reviews published health economic studies of asthma interventions and medical technology with a focus on pediatric and adolescent populations. It begins with descriptions of the etiology, epidemiology, and management of asthma, followed by the economic burden of illness. A detailed literature review and a quality appraisal are presented, scrutinizing asthma outcome measures, the analytic framework and handling of uncertainty. The discussion evaluates how well the current health economic recommendations in pediatric asthma have been reflected in clinical guidelines and suggests avenues for future improvement.

Keywords:   asthma, pediatric, adolescent, burden of illness, literature review, quality appraisal, analytic framework, uncertainty, clinical guidelines
