Abstract

Asthma exacerbations remain a leading cause of hospitalization in the pediatric population, and many children who require hospitalization for status asthmaticus are managed using clinical care pathways (CPGs). Clinical care pathways are often created or adopted by healthcare systems in order to establish specific, evidence-based guidelines that standardize and coordinate quality care in both the emergency room and inpatient settings. This paper reviews the use of these guidelines and the updated evidence-based recommendations regarding best-practice for acute asthma care of hospitalized children, including the 2020 recommendations from the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Expert Panel (NAEPP).
