Asthma UK estimates that 1 in 10 Cumbrians has Asthma, and 172 children were rushed to hospital with asthma related breathing difficulties in 2012.
Figures show that while the number of emergency admissions in Cumbria is going down, the length of stay in hospitals is increasing.
Health professionals say that children are being admitted because their condition has seriously deteriorated, due to poor management of their medication.
