What does the app do?
This app aims to to educate children about asthma, in an enjoyable, entertaining game. In the game, kids adopt a fire-breathing dragon who wants to blow fire like all of its friends, but can't because it has asthma. It's up to kids to care for their pet's asthma. During the game kids learn about asthma care, inhaler timing, inhaler technique, triggers, symptom recognition and appropriate actions to avoid asthma attacks. As children keep their pet dragon healthy, they will unlock each new level and they earn badges by completing missions (there are 30 badges in all). For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play or iTunes and for a detailed review, see Reviews.
✔ Teaches children about asthma - fun and interactive way to teach children about asthma and introduce words like rescue inhaler, spacer, etc.
✘ Spacer technique isn’t quite correct, the game shows using one breath rather than four.
