Risk Factors for Asthma Hospital Admissions

Risk Factors

Asthma event triggers or risk factors include viral infections, allergens (like pollen in the air, molds, the house dust mite, cockroach droppings, animal dander, or foods), or irritants (like smoke and other air pollutants). Smoking and obesity are also risk factors for asthma. Prematurity is another risk factor for asthma development.
