Description

Selecting the appropriate pharmacologic therapy to achieve and maintain control of asthma involves several considerations: the medications and their routes of administration, a stepwise approach to managing asthma long term as a chronic disorder, and a protocol for managing exacerbations. Because of the importance of these two classes of compounds in the treatment of asthma, it is the opinion of the Panel that special emphasis should be given to these issues. A summary is presented in this unit.
The therapeutic strategies provided here should be considered in concert with the clinician- patient partnership strategies provided in the last section of this course. Effective communication with, and education of, patients will increase the benefits of the therapeutic regimen.

• Identify and discuss the long-term and short-acting medications used in the management of asthma.
