Exploring the Link Between Maternal Asthma and Adverse Perinatal Outcomes
TLDR
A meta-analysis was conducted to determine if maternal asthma is associated with adverse perinatal outcomes among women who are pregnant and found that it was not. Expand
The risk of congenital malformations, perinatal mortality and neonatal hospitalisation among pregnant women with asthma: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
There is conflicting literature on the effect of maternal asthma on congenital malformations and neonatal outcomes.
Severity of asthma in pregnancy affects perinatal outcomes
TLDR
Perinatal mortality and morbidity are very important issues related to any chronic maternal–fetal hypoxic condition and asthma education provides an excellent opportunity to prevent these complications. Expand
Asthma is associated with various perinatal risks, but not with preterm birth when it is actively managed during pregnancy
TLDR
A meta-analysis of adverse perinatal outcomes in women with asthma finds that the reported adverse outcomes for the most part are consistent, but varied by the study design as well as by whether or not pregnantWomen with asthma were actively managed. Expand
Asthma treatment impacts time to pregnancy: evidence from the international SCOPE study
TLDR
Examination of the impact of asthma and asthma medication use on fecundability and time to pregnancy in asthmatic women found use of short-acting relievers but not long-term preventers is associated with reduced fertility. Expand
Asthma in pregnancy: a review
TLDR
There is a tendency to cease or reduce optimal asthma treatments because pregnant women and/or their clinicians may believe they pose a risk to the fetus, and a lack of clinician awareness of the complications of asthma in pregnancy. Expand
Inhaled Corticosteroids Use Is Not Associated With an Increased Risk of Pregnancy-Induced Hypertension and Gestational Diabetes Mellitus: Two Nested Case-Control Studies: Erratum
TLDR
This research presents a novel probabilistic procedure that allows for direct measurement of the response of the immune system to earthquake-triggered landsliding. Expand
Correction to: On the use of the outcome variable “small for gestational age” when gestational age is a potential mediator: a maternal asthma perspective
CorrectionFollowing publication of the original article [1], the authors reported that the following four references in Table 2 are incorrect:
Pharmacological difficulties in the treatment of asthma in pregnant women
TLDR
This article reviews the safety of asthma medications commonly used during pregnancy and special attention is paid to the challenges in diagnosis and management of asthma during pregnancy. Expand
The safety of asthma medications during pregnancy: an update for clinicians
Pregnancy may be complicated by new onset or preexisting asthma. This article reviews the recognition and management of asthma during pregnancy, as well as general principles of asthma medication useExpand

Pregnancy outcomes in asthmatic women.
TLDR
The results of this study could indicate that pregnant women with asthma were at substantially increased risk for adverse infant outcomes and suggest the need for extra attention to mothers with asthma before and during pregnancy. Expand
Adverse outcomes in pregnancies of asthmatic women: results from a Canadian population.
TLDR
It is confirmed that pregnant women with asthma are at substantially increased risk for many adverse pregnancy outcomes and are a particularly high-risk group to which extra attention, including increased efforts at education, monitoring, and optimal asthma management, may be appropriate. Expand
Perinatal outcomes in the pregnancies of asthmatic women: a prospective controlled analysis.
TLDR
The overall perinatal prognosis for women with actively managed asthma during pregnancy is comparable to that for the nonasthmatic population, and trends were observed toward relationships between more severe asthma requiring emergency therapy or corticosteroids and increased incidences of preeclampsia and low-birth-weight infants. Expand
Severity of asthma and perinatal outcome
TLDR
Perinatal outcome is compromised in the pregnancy complicated by chronic medication-dependent asthma, and the extent is variable and is associated with disease severity, as measured by medication requirements. Expand

TLDR
Pregnant women with asthma are at an increased risk for adverse maternal outcome and this association persists after controlling for variables considered to co-exist with maternal asthma, however, perinatal outcome is favorable. Expand
Infant and maternal outcomes in the pregnancies of asthmatic women.
TLDR
The results emphasize the need for maternal asthma to be added to the list of conditions that increase the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes and confirm the relationship between infant and maternal outcomes and asthma complicating pregnancy. Expand
Incidence of preeclampsia among asthmatic patients lower with theophylline.
TLDR
Theophylline, which is known to inhibit platelet aggregation and alter vascular tone, may reduce the incidence of preeclampsia, at least among asthmatic patients, and other factors did not appear to account for these results. Expand
Asthma during pregnancy: mechanisms and treatment implications
TLDR
Asthma treatment, by reducing maternal inflammation and preventing exacerbations, is safe for use in pregnant females and contributes to improved outcomes for both mother and foetus. Expand
Association of Obesity With Pulmonary and Nonpulmonary Complications of Pregnancy in Asthmatic Women
TLDR
The increased rate of nonpulmonary complications of pregnancy in asthma patients is associated with obesity in this population and not with asthma status, and obesity was associated with an increase in asthma exacerbations during pregnancy. Expand
