Consistency of recommendations made by asthma apps with evidence-base. The table shows the number of references to each statement made by apps included in the assessment and the direction of any recommendation associated with that statement. For example, an app claiming that removing pets from the home is beneficial for asthma symptom control would count under the 'Beneficial' column. The expected advice (in the example given: that there is no clear evidence that removal of pets from the home improves asthma symptoms) is shown for each statement in the shaded box.
