One Response to World Asthma Day – Tuesday 3 May, 2011

  1. My name is Al Keith. I am a respiratory therapist of 24 years and a musician of 44 years with two passions, asthma education for patients/family and music. I have combined the two passions into one, with the result being “Asthma Blues” “Asthma Blues” is the innovative asthma education music CD and book that delivers evidence-based clinical concepts and key messages for asthma management. Asthma control, identification of asthma triggers, purpose and proper delivery of relief and controller medication, purpose and use of a peak flow meter, and the importance of a written asthma action plan to guide self-management are some of the clinical messages delivered in songs of popular musical genres such as Blues, Country & Western, Hip-Hop, Reggae, R&B, and Rock & Roll. Designed to apply the science of music and learning, the “Asthma Blues” CD and book effectively deliver asthma management concepts that can improve asthma outcomes and create a win-win environment for both patients and clinicians/educators. You can view the “Asthma Blues” video at, and visit our updated website,, to learn more and listen to the music from “Asthma Blues”. Feel free to to share the links with colleagues as you prepare for your World Asthma Day event. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!
