Two thirds of deaths from asthma are preventable, confidential inquiry finds

Two in three deaths from asthma could be prevented by better management of the condition including personal asthma plans for patients, timely reviews of asthma care, and the prescription of more appropriate drugs, says the first confidential inquiry into asthma by the Royal College of Physicians.1

Procedural sedation and analgesia for adults in the emergency department

A 59 year old woman presents to the emergency department with an isolated anterior dislocation of her left shoulder after a fall. Other than controlled asthma, she is healthy. Her last meal was four hours before the injury. After adequate analgesia using intravenous fentanyl, and despite an initial attempt to reduce her dislocation using relaxation techniques, it becomes evident that she needs sedation to complete the procedure successfully.

Maintenance treatment for adults with chronic asthma

Which treatment for asthma is most likely to reduce the risk of exacerbations in adults? In a linked paper, Loymans and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.g3009) seek to address this question using network meta-analysis.1 The authors identified and compared 16 different treatment approaches, using evidence from randomised trials of at least 24 weeks’ duration. The primary outcome was severe exacerbations (leading to admission to hospital, a visit to the emergency department, or a course of oral steroids).

Clinical trials: units of randomisation

Researchers evaluated the efficacy of a short course of oral prednisolone for acute asthma in children of school age. A randomised double blind placebo controlled crossover trial study design was used. The intervention was parent initiated treatment with the corticosteroid prednisolone (1 mg/kg/day) or placebo when an episode of acute asthma occurred. For each episode, treatment with prednisolone or placebo was chosen at random. Participants were 230 children aged 5-12 years with a history of recurrent episodes of acute asthma. Each child could contribute a maximum of eight episodes of acute asthma to the data collection over a three year study period.1

Event medicine: injury and illness during an expedition-length adventure race ☆

To describe the incidence and type of injury and illness occurring during an expedition-length adventure race and identify those resulting in withdrawal from the event, a prospective cohort study was conducted of the injuries and illness treated during the Subaru Primal Quest Expedition Adventure Race™ held in Colorado July 7–16, 2002. All racers, support crewmembers, and race staff were eligible to participate in the study. When a member of the study group received medical care due to an injury or illness, the encounter was recorded on a Medical Encounter Form. If an injury or illness resulted in withdrawal from the race, this was also recorded. Information from the Medical Encounter Forms was used to generate the Medical Log. There were 671 individuals eligible to participate in the study. A total of 243 medical encounters and 302 distinct injuries and illnesses were recorded. There were 179 (59%) injuries and 123 (41%) illnesses. Skin and soft tissue injuries and illness were the most frequent (48%), with blisters on the feet representing the single most common (32.8%). Second was respiratory illness (18.2%), including upper respiratory infection, bronchitis and reactive airway disease-asthma. Respiratory illness was the most common medical reason for withdrawal from the event. Injuries accounted for almost 60% of all injury and illness yet they contributed to less than 15% of the medical withdrawals from the race. Blisters accounted for almost one-third of all conditions treated. Providers of medical support for expedition-length adventure races should be prepared to treat a wide variety of injury and illness.

Asthma: pathogenesis and novel drugs for treatment

Asthma affects almost 20 million people in the United States and more than 300 million people worldwide. Of these, 10-15% have severe asthma, which is refractory to commonly available drugs. New drugs are needed because those that are currently available cannot control symptoms and exacerbations in all patients and can cause adverse reactions. In the past 10 years, there have been substantial advances in the understanding of asthma genetics, airway biology, and immune cell signaling. These advances have led to the development of small molecule therapeutics and biologic agents that may improve asthma care in the future. Several new classes of asthma drugs—including ultra long acting β agonists and modulators of the interleukin 4 (IL-4), IL-5, IL-13, and IL-17 pathways—have been evaluated in randomized controlled trials. Other new drug classes—including dissociated corticosteroids, CXC chemokine receptor 2 antagonists, toll-like receptor 9 agonists, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors—remain in earlier phases of development. Despite some preliminary efficacy data, there is insufficient evidence to make strong recommendations about the use of these newer agents. Future research on the clinical efficacy of these biologic agents, the effect of newer agents on severe asthma in pediatric patients, and the biology of non-eosinophilic and corticosteroid resistant asthma is needed to reduce the morbidity of asthma worldwide.
