Pediatric Asthma
Sophie, 8
San Francisco, California
Emma's 8-year-old daughter, Sophie, had suffered from asthma since she was a toddler. Sophie had visited the local ER twice in the last month, one time ending up on a BiPAP machine in the Pediatric ICU. Although Sophie had a cabinet full of medication, her condition appeared to be worsening. Because Emma traveled frequently for work, she felt her visits with Sophie's primary care doctor and pulmonologists were sporadic. As a result, she often questioned her knowledge of Sophie's condition and wondered whether she was doing all that she could to help her daughter.
Summus provided Emma access to a leading authority on pediatric respiratory disorders in under 36 hours.
