Abstract

Asthma is an important health problem because of the high recurrence rate in children, if not handled properly, asthma can reduce the quality of life of children, interfere with growth, limit daily activities, interfere with sleep, increase school attendance, and lead to academic achievement in school decreased. The threat of trigger factors for recurrence is overwhelming and varies in every child. Usually, there are one or more factors of some dominant factors, so that efforts to educate health better focus on the factors that threaten the recurrence. This study aims to identify the factors of the threat of exposure to asthma triggers in children. The design of this research is analytical descriptive with the cross-sectional design. The number of respondents was 53 children with asthma. Bivariate analysis showed that the trigger factors associated with the occurrence of recurrence of asthma were allergen exposure (p = 0.177), physical activity (p = 0.69), foods (0.036) and weather (0.192). The result of the multivariate analysis showed the strength of the strongest relationship until weakest relapse of asthma in children was the activity (OR = 0,241) and allergen (OR = 0,05). It is expected that management of asthma through education in children or parents can be more focused on avoiding the threat factors of exposure trigger recurrence.
