A respiratory emergency room admissions monitoring system (RERAMS) was set up in Barcelona between 1985-1989, in order to investigate asthma epidemics in the city.
Information on emergency room admissions for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was recorded daily from the four main hospitals of the city.
The present study aims at assessing the reliability and coverage of this monitoring system.
Identification of asthma and COPD emergencies was repeated by a reference observer, following the same protocol to extract data as that used by the register.
