Asthma is a complex disorder and a leading chronic disease among children in USA. Families and pediatric patients with asthma need to manage different triggers and symptoms. We investigate existing asthma management practices and deploy technology probes to understand how they use technologies to manage asthma. The findings suggest that severity of asthma impacts the way that technologies are utilized. Thus, pervasive computing application can assist families and pediatric patients by bridging gaps between user's needs and their practices based on the severity of asthma and other contextual factors.
