Emergency department visit count: A practical tool to predict asthma hospitalization in children
from Journal of Asthma via Taylor & Francis Online
Resource limitations and low rates of follow-up with primary care providers currently limit the impact of emergency department-based preventative strategies for children with asthma. A mechanism to recognize the children at highest risk of future hospitalization is needed to target comprehensive preventative interventions at discharge. The primary objective of this study was to determine whether frequency of ED visits predicts future asthma hospitalization in children.
