When All That Wheezes Is Usually Asthma

, Watnick et. al. ( 10.1542/peds.2017-4003 ) share their experiences from a quality improvement initiative at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt to reduce the percentage of chest x-rays obtained on patients with acute asthma exacerbations.  The multi-disciplinary team of pediatric hospitalist, emergency medicine specialists, and pulmonary specialist, nurses, nurse practitioners, and respiratory therapists identified three key drivers to reduce the number of chest x-rays ordered: 1) standardization of treatment, 2) electronic ordering that supported asthma practice guideline, and 3) provider education.  To address these  key drivers, team members updated their institution’s asthma practice guideline to reserve chest x-ray use for persistent severe respiratory distress, focal findings not improving after ≥12 hours of standard asthma therapy, or concern for pneumomediastinum or pneumothorax.  Additionally, chest x-rays were removed from the ED’s asthma order set and providers could no longer choose “wheeze” as an indication for obtaining the study.  Key stakeholders were educated on these measures by QI team members and the outcomes were subsequently studied using statistical process control charts.  So, did it work?

Because of the spectrum of severity within asthma, some people with asthma only rarely experience symptoms, usually in response to triggers, where as other more severe cases may have marked airflow obstruction at all times.

Asthma exists
