Asthma attacks and stress responses in adulthood

Postby ehwag on Tue Feb 21, 2012 2:50 pm

Hi all,

I have had bronchial asthma when I was younger, though no symptoms have been present for some time now. But I understand asthma is a complex condition, so with my education in psychology I am doing a study to add to research in this field.

The research is an online survey looking at the relationship between stress and asthma. It is not a medical study, and I will not profit in any way from people participating. It is designed to understand how people with asthma attacks can be supported better.

Here is the link if you have had an attack and can spare a few minutes: http://www.asthma-attack-research.com/

please ask any questions you might have. More info via the link as well.

Also please feel free to use this discussion to post your own thoughts and feelings about how an attack can cause stress reactions, or how stress affects your asthma.

Kind Regards,

E.

Hello,

Just for a quick update, we currently have 75 completed surveys out of the minimum goal of 100! So far the progress has been great, so thank you everyone who has participated or passed the survey on to someone.

However, we need at least 100 complete responses in order to perform the statistical analysis and represent an accurate diversity of people with asthma.

Please consider participating in the survey if you haven't already, it would be a great help to the research effort. (www.asthma-attack-research.com)

Thank you again to all who have taken part already, we look forward to sharing the results!

Hello!
***The survey is now closed***
Thank you to everyone who has participated and made this study possible. A summary of the results will be available via the same link as the survey in about 8 weeks time when the study has been completed.
Kind regards
