Asthma Education and Secondhand Smoke Reduction for Premature Infants

This program is designed to test whether comprehensive asthma education combined with a home-based secondhand smoke reduction program can reduce exposure to smoke and prevent respiratory illness among premature infants. We conducted a smoke reduction and education program with families at their homes. Regular follow-up assessments were then conducted to assess symptoms, smoke exposure and triggers, and to provide additional information.

Clinicaltrials.gov: NCT00499915
