Most of those in charge of giving kids their asthma medication aren't doing it properly.

That's what a new study of techniques used by caregivers finds.

Only one of nearly 170 in the research group successfully carried out the guidelines for delivery of asthma treatment.

Kids often depend on adults to help with medication, especially the use of inhalers, which require proper dosage.

The Journal of Asthma has details of the problems, including caregivers not getting complete training in how to administer medicine and treatment.
