  1. Twenty year trends in hospital discharges for asthma among members of a health maintenance organization.

    Article - En anglais

    We examined trends in hospitalizations for asthma from 1967 to 1987 among members of a large health maintenance organization.

    During this time asthma discharges increased significantly among children, and especially among boys under the age of 5 years.

    Ninety-five percent of the increase in discharges among boys was explained by a corresponding increase in the number of boys who were hospitalized.

    Increased readmissions did not account for the rise.

    Changes in the International Classification of Diseases coding of asthma and diagnostic shift by physicians accounted for only part of the increase.
