To test the effectiveness of school-based asthma education interventions, community-based asthma health workers' programs and the combination of these on asthmatic children. Also, to exam...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate current and novel therapies and management strategies for children with asthma. The emphasis is on clinical trials that help identify optimal thera...
A multi-center, randomized, open, non-inferiority, Phase 4 study
Video education versus face-to-face education on inhaler technique for patients with well-controlled or partly-controlled asthma: A phase IV, open-label, non-inferiority, multicenter, randomized, controlled trial.
Education on inhaler technique is critical for effective asthma treatment. However, traditionally used face-to-face education is time-consuming, costly, and often laborious. The current study evaluate...
To increase daily asthma symptom self-assessments of elementary school students using Green Means Go, an asthma education and self-assessment program, via a partnership between an elementary school an...
Emergency department (ED) visits are an opportunity to initiate chronic asthma care. Ideally, this care should be implemented in a fashion that limits utilization of scarce ED resources. We developed,...
Written personalized asthma action plans are recommended as part of patient education and self-management.
Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS) are the cornerstone of asthma management in pediatric patients. However, in some cases, asthma is not adequately controlled on ICS alone. Long-acting beta-agonists (LABA)...
A chromone complex that acts by inhibiting the release of chemical mediators from sensitized mast cells. It is used in the prophylactic treatment of both allergic and exercise-induced asthma, but does not affect an established asthmatic attack.
Drugs that are used to treat asthma.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
Asthmatic adverse reaction (e.g., BRONCHOCONSTRICTION) to conventional NSAIDS including aspirin use.
Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.
