Severity of Asthma attack in Europe
Introduction of modern drugs have shown no improvement on mortality from asthma in England and Wales. The rate remains unchanged for at least 20 years, especially in age group 15-44. Most of this mortality is caused due to patient's failure to recognize the severity of the asthma, rapid progress in the severity of the attack, misjudgment in the management of the attack and delay from many causes. Patients admitted to hospital with severe acute asthma usually survive. It is important for those at risk of a life threatening attack to be identified and taught to monitor the severity and progress of their asthma objectively.
