PRESENTED ON: Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM
PURPOSE: Asthma prevalence is on rise worldwide and adherence with preventive guidelines is less than adequate at primary care offices. We enrolled children referred from primary care practices with the diagnosis of uncontrolled asthma in a specialty asthma clinic and managed their asthma as per NAEPP guidelines. Aim of the study was to document improvement, if any, in asthma control in children referred from primary care with uncontrolled asthma by managing their asthma as per NAEPP (EPR-3) guidelines.
