Severe Asthma: Bridging the Gaps in Practice-Accurate diagnosis is essential to prescribe optimal therapy and thereby improve clinical outcomes in patients with asthma. However, the diagnosis of asthma and its severity are often delayed or inaccurate. Primary care providers (PCP) care for the majority of asthmatics in the United States, yet a large proportion of adolescents and adults are poorly controlled.
Objectively assess the level of symptom control in patients with asthma. Differentiate difficult-to-treat versus treatment-refractory, severe asthma. Discuss the clinical features of treatment-refractory, severe asthma. Apply the step treatment method to attain adequate symptom control in patients with severe asthma.
