113 Breathe Easy: A Review of Asthma Management
The management of asthma continues to evolve, and with prevalence rates higher in the correctional population than the general population, it’s important that correctional providers have a strong understanding of the management of this disease. Through this review, attendees will gain a better understanding of not only the basics of asthma management but also of asthma/COPD overlap and the management of difficult-to-treat patients.
- Describe and review the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of asthma
- Identify and manage causes of treatment failure
- Propose possible management for difficult-to-treat patients
