A 29-Year Perspective of Status Asthmaticus in Children
Abstract:This manuscript presents a four year follow-up of a review of the issues in the management of status asthmaticus that are often controversial. A combination of previous considerations and experience is mixed with a review of the recent literature to formulate current recommendations. The reasons to use epinephrine, sodium bicarbonate, theophylline, corticosteroids, oxygen, hydration, intravenous adrenergic agents and controlled ventilation are discussed. Death from status asthmaticus should be preventable.
