Sending text messages to inform children with asthma about the symptoms of the illness could boost care results and help them comprehend the condition, according to a study by researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology. "It appears that text messages acted as an implicit reminder for patients to take their medicine and by the end of the study, the kids were more in tune with their illness," said study leader Rosa Arriaga. "The results indicate that both awareness and knowledge are crucial to individuals engaging in proactive behavior to improve their condition."
