For each column, a topic and a research study are selected. The stage is set with a case presentation. The research article is then reviewed and critiqued, and the findings are discussed in relation to the case presented. In the current column, we examine the findings of J. Kravitz, P. Dominici, J. Ufberg, J. Fisher, and P. Giraldo (2011) from their article, titled “Two Days of Dexamethasone Versus 5 Days of Prednisone in the Treatment of Acute Asthma: A Randomized Controlled Trial.” © 2016 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
