ABSTRACT
The main goal of this study was to establish the quality of life level for children with asthma. Aproaching my target, I have used the following materrials and methods: a study over a lot of 103 children diagnosed with asthma (partenership with 3 Romanian hospitals). The patients have filled in a questionaire of self evaluation for the impact the disease has over the quality of life. The questionaire used is suggested by E. Juniper, "Pediatric Asthma Quality of life Questionaire" [PAQLQ(S)], the most used one in the field. The results reveal a medium level of life quality affectation, with lower rates on the level of emotional function (it means an impact more negativ over life quality), compared with the results obtained for the symptoms and activity limitation of the asthmatic child. I notied that the medicine therapy has a positive effect on the quality of life, lowering the symptoms, but the emotional area should be improved through an psychological and educational approach.
