Asthma

The EvidenceCare Asthma pathway allows providers to utilize a structured approach to the management of pediatric and adult patients with Asthma. Topics that are covered include acute exacerbations and impending respiratory arrest. The Pediatric Asthma Score (PAS) and the Pediatric Respiratory Asthma Measurement (PRAM) are embedded as decision rules to help the provider risk stratify their patient. Guidelines recommendations are included from the Managing Asthma Exacerbations in the Emergency Department Summary of the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Expert Panel (ATS 2009), British Guidelines on the Management of Asthma (2014), and multiple Cochrane Database Systematic Reviews.
