- InterventionsThe use of an iPad to film and review the inhalation technique.
- Primary outcomeThe fall in FEV1 during an ECT, on a trampoline (6-12 year) or a treadmill (12-18 year), will be measured . The endpoint is the fall in FEV1at the ECT . The ECT performed on a treadmill is according to ATS/ERS recommendations. The ECT’s will be performed at the paediatric department. Children will run, nose clipped, on a treadmill with a 10% to 19, 5% slope, for 3 min period (7 times) with a heart rate at 80% of predicted maximum (210-age). The children less than 12 years perform the ECT on a trampoline. Children will be asked to jump 3 times 2 minutes on a trampoline with a heart rate at 80% of the predicted maximum (210-age).
- Secondary outcome• The use of Salbutamol in both groups, the children receive during visit 1 a Salbutamol inhaler for symptoms of breathlessness during the 4 weeks. This inhaler contains a counter that counts how many times the inhaler is used.
• The scores in critical errors of inhalation technique after 4 weeks treatment. Inhalation technique will be scored according to standardized inhalation protocols designed by the Lung Alliance Netherlands (LAN) for every inhalation device (see appendix).
• The symptom score endpoint will be the measured by the ACT; this is a questionnaire that is answered by caregivers(s) and the child. The first 4 questions must be answered by the child, the last three by the caregiver(s). Score below 20 points; the asthma is not likely to have been under control for the past 4 weeks. 20 points or more; the asthma was probably well under control over the last 4 weeks.
- TimepointsIf children do not send their videoclips for more than three consequetive days they have to return their iPad.

- Brief summaryThe main objective of this study is: to investigate the effect of filming and reviewing with an ipad of the inhalation technique on EIB and compare the results with standard care/treatment in children aged 6-18 years with uncontroled moderate to severe asthma. Furthermore we study the Salbutamol use, symptom score between the treatments groups and the relation between demonstrated inhalation technique in the clinic and the videotaped inhalation technique.
