Fig. 1

A dynamic adherence Markov cohort asthma model. The model was developed using Microsoft® Excel 2007 (Microsoft Corporation, United States of America). The simulated cohort enters from either one of the three asthma control-adherence states (B, C, and D). Then after a cycle length of 1 month, they either transit to other health states or remain in the current state. There are two absorbing states here, death due to asthma and other causes. The one-way arrow indicates a single direction of transition from one state to the other, whilst the two-way arrow indicates that transition to and fro between two states is possible. The curved arrow indicates that the simulated cohort remains in the current state after a cycle
