Latest Trends in Asthma Management
1Medicine, Monash University, Australia
This presentation will provide an overview of current evidence for interventions for acute paediatric asthma. Current Cochrane-level evidence for inhaled therapies (continuous vs intermittent beta agonists, additional anticholinergics, heliox and magnesium), systemic therapy (intravenous magnesium, aminophylline, beta-agonists, ketamine, leukotriene receptor antagonists), and non-invasive ventilation will be presented, and compared to current clinical practice guidelines.
Current gaps in the evidence, and efforts to address these gaps will also be highlighted.
