  • Child tobacco smoke exposure and healthcare resource utilization patterns. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Res. 2020 Jun 06 [Online ahead of print]Merianos AL, Jandarov RA, … Mahabee-Gittens EM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tobacco smoke-exposed children are more likely to have higher resource utilization patterns, highlighting the importance of screening and providing TSE prevention and remediation interventions.Tobacco smoke exposure may affect the healthcare resource utilization patterns of children.Evidence is lacking concerning these associations among the highly vulnerable pediatric emergency department patient population.This study examined the association between tobacco smoke exposure and healthcare resource utilization patterns among pediatric emergency department patients.Tobacco smoke exposure increased the risk of pediatric patients having respiratory-related procedures, respiratory-related and non-respiratory-related testing, medications administered during the pediatric emergency department visit, and medications prescribed for home administration.Tobacco smoke-exposed patients were more likely to be admitted to the hospital compared to unexposed patients.

Stock asthma rescue medication policies authorize school districts to maintain unassigned albuterol and enable trained staff members to administer the medication in response to asthma symptoms, exercise premedication, and asthma emergencies. Stock asthma rescue (or reliever) medica…
  • Current Bronchodilator Responsiveness Criteria Underestimate Asthma in Older Adults. [Journal Article]
    Respir Care. 2020 Feb 18 [Online ahead of print]Cavallazzi RS, Polivka BJ, … Folz RJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that a late positive response to bronchodilator use was more common than previously presumed in older subjects with suspected asthma. Pulmonary function testing laboratories should consider routinely reassessing spirometry at 1 h after bronchodilator use if the earlier assessment did not reveal a significant response.
