Asthma Background:
  • 300 million diagnosed worldwide
  • 1 in 250 deaths worldwide is attributed to asthma
  • 27 million people in the USA have at some time received a diagnosis of asthma
  • 2 million emergency department visits/year (USA)
  • Up to 20% admission & bounce-back in two weeks
Steroid therapy is central to asthma management
There are several potential advantages to inhaled corticosteroid use such as less systemic side effects, direct delivery to the airway, greater efficacy in reducing airway reactivity and oedema"
