Clinical guidelines on pediatric asthma exacerbation in emergency department, a narrative review
Asthma has been known as a prevalent chronic-type inflammatory disease in children, because of their narrower respiratory airways. The present study aimed to identify guidelines for children asthma treatments. Extensive research was conducted on biomedical and pharmacological bibliographic database PubMed, EMBASE, MEDLINE, LILACS database, global independent network of Cochrane, Science Direct and global health library of Global Index Medicus. A comprehensive literature review was carried out using the terms Pediatric Asthma, epidemiology, management, and related clinical guidelines published from 2000 to 2019. After the primary assessment, quick diagnosis, clinical practice guidelines are useful tools for proper management of pediatric Asthma. By setting proper guidelines for this particular population, a higher improvement in quality of management of of pediatric Asthma is expected. Given the differences between the recommendations arisen by BTS/SIGN and NICE guidelines, critical comparison of the evidence-base guidelines provide suggestions that have more in common than what might seems at the first glance. The analysis of the variations presented in the present article will assist clinicians to make accurate decisions regarding their patients.
