The information is based on scientific evidence shown to achieve the best results and backed by Sutter Health pediatric and asthma experts. These are the same experts who created the Childhood Asthma Sutter Initiative (CASI). Together, they established standard treatment guidelines to improve outcomes for the more than 16,000 children with asthma cared for by Sutter Health doctors and health care professionals.
With appropriate treatment and prevention, most children with asthma can lead healthy, active lives.
