  1. Long-term survival of a cohort of community residents with asthma.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Reports of an increase in asthma-related mortality have been based on studies of death certificates from the general U.S. population on which asthma was listed as an underlying cause of death.

    We addressed the issue in a different way by analyzing longterm survival in a defined, population-based cohort of patients with asthma.

    Methods

    We identified all residents of Rochester, Minnesota, in whom asthma was diagnosed from January 1,1964, through December 31,1983, by reviewing the medical records of all patients with asthma and associated diagnoses, using explicit predefined criteria.

    The patients'vital status at last follow-up was ascertained.
