  1. Comprehensive long-term management program for asthma : Effect on outcomes in adult African-Americans.

    Article - En anglais

    To determine if a comprehensive long-term management program, emphasizing inhaled corticosteroids and patient education, would improve outcomes in adult African-American asthmatics a nonrandomized control trial with a 2-year intervention was performed in a university-based clinic.

    Inclusion criteria consisted of (>5) emergency department (ED) visits or hospitalizations (=2) during the previous 2 years.

    Intervention patients were volunteers ; a comparable control group was identified via chart review at hospitals within the same area and time period as the intervention patients.

    Individualized doses of beclomethasone with a spacer, inhaled albuterol « as needed, » and crisis prednisone were the primary therapies.

    Environmental control, peak flow monitoring, and a partnership with the patient were emphasized.

    Detailed patient education was an integral part of management.

    Control patients received usual care from local physicians.

    ED visits and hospitalizations for 2 years before and 2 years during the intervention period were compared.

    Quality of life (QOL) measurements were made at baseline and every 6 months in the intervention group.

    Study group (n=21) had a significant reduction in ED visits (2.3 ± 0.2 pre-intervention versus 0.6 ± 0.2 post-intervention ; P=0.0001).

    Control group (n=18) did not have a significant change in ED visits during the 2-year post-intervention period (2.6 ± 0.2 pre-intervention versus 2.0 ± 0.2 post-intervention ; P=0.11). (...)
