Asthma is a serious health problem throughout the world. During the past two decades, many scientific advances have improved our understanding of asthma and ability to manage and control it effectively. However, recommendations for asthma care need to be adapted to local conditions, resources and services. Since it was formed in 1993, the Global Initiative for Asthma, a network of individuals, organisations and public health officials, has played a leading role in disseminating information… Expand

Updated drug therapy guideline of asthma
TLDR
This session will mainly focus on updated stepwise drug therapy of asthma based on the level of control, which recommend a change in approach to asthma management with asthma control, rather than asthma severity, being the focus of treatment decisions. Expand

Asthma control: a new perspective on the management of asthma.
  • N. Hanania
  • Medicine
  • Current opinion in pulmonary medicine
  • 2009
TLDR
These guidelines have established a number of asthma therapy goals that focus on the maintenance of normal activity levels and the patient’s clinical management should be reassessed when any of these goals are not met. Expand
Uniform definition of asthma severity, control, and exacerbations: document presented for the World Health Organization Consultation on Severe Asthma.
TLDR
Asthma is a global health problem affecting around 300 million individuals of all ages, ethnic groups and countries, and a common international approach is favored to define severe asthma, uncontrolled asthma, and when the 2 coincide, although adaptation may be required in accordance with local conditions. Expand
Asthma management in the developing world: achievements and challenges
  • W. Tan
  • Medicine
  • Expert review of respiratory medicine
  • 2008
TLDR
The challenges and current status of asthma management are reviewed and the new global initiatives for bringing optimal asthma care to asthma sufferers in resource-poor countries are highlighted. Expand
Management of asthma: the current US and European guidelines.
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the evolution of asthma management guidelines and summarizes the key points and evidence used in the recommendations for the assessment, monitoring, and management of asthma in all ages, with particular emphasis on the NHLBI guidelines. Expand
Review: Control of asthma
TLDR
In the latest guidelines, a clearer definition of control is given and new tools for the assessment and monitoring of control are instituted. Expand
Addressing unmet needs in understanding asthma mechanisms
TLDR
This report aims to identify the mechanistic areas in which investment is required to bring about significant improvements in asthma outcomes and describes a state-of-the-art view of the mechanisms involved in asthma onset, asthma progression and asthma exacerbations. Expand
Smoking and asthma control.
  • C. Viegas
  • Medicine
  • Jornal brasileiro de pneumologia : publicacao oficial da Sociedade Brasileira de Pneumologia e Tisilogia
  • 2009
TLDR
It is indicated that poorly controlled asthma is more common among smoking patients than among nonsmoking patients, and there has been a significant decrease in the prevalence of smoking, especially in developed countries. Expand
Asthma control: evidence-based monitoring and the prevention of exacerbations
TLDR
It seems sensible to propose that indices of asthma control be sought that combine the benefits of the above approaches in a way that allows a satisfactory classification of asthmaControl. Expand

TLDR
It is possible to reduce the morbidity of asthma and its impact on individuals as well as on society and improvements would have taken place without the programme, but not of this magnitude. Expand
Development and implementation of asthma guidelines.
TLDR
It appears that traditional continuing medical education will not lead to a change in clinical practice in patients with asthma, and the challenge remains to create a framework for implementing methodologically sound guidelines locally. Expand
The global burden of asthma: executive summary of the GINA Dissemination Committee Report

Association of asthma control with health care utilization and quality of life.

An index of number of control problems exhibited marked and highly significant cross-sectional associations with self- reported HCU and with both generic and disease-specific QOL instruments, suggesting that each of the four dimensions of asthma control represented by these problems correlates with clinically significant impairment.

TLDR
The identification of a key clinical staff member to take the lead in translating these and other asthma education guidelines will be a critical next step for clinicians committed to developing an effective asthma education program. Expand

TLDR
A simple easy-to-use asthma control scoring system based on a percentage of optimal control that could be a simple tool that is potentially useful both for the clinician and for research purposes, to quantify global or specific aspects of asthma control. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that well-educated health professionals who recognize the person with asthma as an individual, and who give advice about self-management, can significantly reduce the suffering and costs associated with asthma. Expand
Self-management education and regular practitioner review for adults with asthma.
TLDR
Education in asthma self-management which involves self-monitoring by either peak expiratory flow or symptoms, coupled with regular medical review and a written action plan improves health outcomes for adults with asthma. Expand
Limited (information only) patient education programs for adults with asthma.
TLDR
Use of limited asthma education as it has been practiced does not appear to improve health outcomes in adults with asthma, however the use of information in the emergency department may be effective, but this needs to be confirmed. Expand
