Abstract

In the article “Frequency of Prescription of Inhaled Corticosteroids to Children With Asthma in U.S. Emergency Departments,” the authors conducted a secondary data analysis from the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey database to examine inhaled corticosteroid prescribing patterns of providers caring for children with asthma visiting emergency departments. We review and critique this article and use a case study module to illustrate the importance of the research findings and how they relate to practice in the emergency department in light of current national guidelines for managing asthma exacerbations.
