Prise en charge de l'asthme aigu aux urgences

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2011, vol. 7, no. 322, p. 2501-5
Abstract Acute asthma is a frequent occurrence in the emergency room. Early care includes gradation of severity and rapid administration of systemic corticosteroid and bronchodilators. After initial treatment, if the patient has no longer criteria for severe asthma, and no poor outcome risk factor, continuation of treatment at home is a possible option. It requires to schedule a close appointment for medical follow-up, establishment of an asthma treatment plan, prescription of a short course of oral corticosteroids together with a combination of inhaled corticosteroid and long acting beta-2-agonist for longer duration of treatment.
