Outcome of short-term hospitalization for children with severe asthma.
This study presents results of a family-centered, short-term residential program in which medical, behavioral, and treatment assessments were provided to the child with severe asthma and the family.
After a median stay of 15 days, forty-four consecutively admitted children with severe asthma achieved a 93% reduction in hospital days (median, 7 hospital days for the year before treatment versus median 0 hospital days per patient per year at 20 1/2-month follow-up; p<0.001) and an 81% reduction in emergency care.
(median, 4 visits for the year previously versus median, 0.4 visits per patient per year at follow-up; p<0.01).
