Pathophysiology and management of life-threatening asthma.

Publication ,  Journal Article
Kussin, PS
Published in: Respir Care Clin N Am
December 1995

With sound medical management and good patient education, only a small minority of patients with asthma ever experience a life-threatening episode. The pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and management of life-threatening asthma are reviewed. Special emphasis is placed on identification of the fatality-prone asthmatic patient and on avoidance of complications of treatment that significantly add to morbidity and mortality rates.
