Updated CPG: Acute asthma

The acute asthma CPG has been updated and reviewed by interstate reviewers.


The Key points for the CPG are

  1. If unsure if anaphylaxis or asthma, treat as anaphylaxis. Treatment of both is critical
  1. Children <12 months of age presenting with wheeze are likely to have bronchiolitis
  1. Preschoolers should only be given steroids for wheeze that is bronchodilator responsive and requires admission
