ABSTRACT

En 1995 se publicó en Archivos Argentinos de Pediatría la primera "Guía de diagnóstico y tratamiento: asma bronquial en niños". En 2007 y 2016 se realizaron actualizaciones. Luego de 5 años se presentan los nuevos contenidos. Las modificaciones más relevantes, aunque no las únicas, se observan en las estrategias terapéuticas. En esta versión se estratifica el tratamiento en "niveles" (1 a 5). El paradigma de cambio en el tratamiento crónico del asma consiste en erradicar la prescripción de broncodilatadores (salbutamol) a demanda, por un lado, y por otro, aparece la opción de tratamiento combinado intermitente con corticoides inhalados y broncodilatadores acción prolongada (LABA) para las formas más leves (niveles 1 y 2), en niños de 12 años o mayores. Aún no se dispone de suficiente evidencia que avale estas opciones en menores de 12 años, por lo que se mantienen las normativas previas vigentes en este grupo. Para más detalles, sugerimos la lectura del documento completo


In 1995, the first Guideline on Diagnosis and Treatment for Childhood Asthma was published in Archivos Argentinos de Pediatría. Updates were made in 2007 and 2016. After 5 years, the new contents are presented. The most relevant modifications, although not the only ones, are observed in therapeutic strategies. In this version, treatment is stratified into "levels" (1 to 5). The current paradigm of change in chronic asthma treatment consists in eradicating the prescription of bronchodilators (salbutamol) on demand. Besides that, the option of intermittent treatment with inhaled corticosteroids plus long-acting bronchodilators (LABA) appears for milder forms (levels 1 and 2) in children > 12 years old. There is still not enough evidence to support these options in < 12 years old maintaining the previous recommendations in this group. For more details we suggest reading the full document.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To compare the therapeutic effect on bronchial asthma between presence of skin reaction and the absence of skin reaction after acupoint application.@*METHODS@#Sixty-one patients with bronchial asthma were treated with acupoint application during the hottest periods of summer ("dog days"). The acupoints included Dingchuan (EX-B 1), Feishu (BL 13), Xinshu (BL 15), Pishu (BL 20) and Shenshu (BL 23). The treatment was given once every 7 days, with the herbal plaster remained for 6 h each time, and 4 treatments were required totally. According to the local skin reaction after acupoint application, a skin reaction group (30 cases, 2 cases dropped off) and a non-skin reaction group (31 cases) were divided. Separately, before treatment and 1 year after treatment, using chronic disease management platform of asthma, the number of asthma attacks, the score of asthma control test (ACT) and the score of asthma quality of life questionnaire (AQLQ) were recorded online. Besides, the therapeutic effect was observed in the two groups 1 year after treatment.@*RESULTS@#One year after treatment, the number of asthma attacks was reduced as compared with that before treatment in the patients of either group (@*CONCLUSION@#In treatment of acupoint application for bronchial asthma, the clinical therapeutic effect is better in the patients with local skin reaction after acupoint application. The chronic disease management platform of asthma is convenient for online evaluation.

ABSTRACT

Peak expiratory flow (PEF) is a portable, reliable, and inexpensive method for lung function assessment. PEF can reflect expiratory airflow limitation and its variability can document reversibility, which provides an objective basis for the diagnosis of asthma in children. Short-term PEF monitoring can be an important aid in the management of acute asthma exacerbations, identification of possible triggers, and assessment of response to treatment. Long-term PEF monitoring can assist in the assessment of asthma control and warning of acute exacerbations, and this is useful for children with severe asthma. This article reviews the measurements, influencing factors, interpretation, and application of PEF, and its role in the diagnosis and management of asthma in children, to provide references for the clinical application of PEF in children.

ABSTRACT

Resumen El síndrome de asma crítico es una emergencia médica que amenaza la vida y de no instaurar un tratamiento urgente, progresa a un estado de hipoxia irreversible o paro cardiorrespiratorio. La ventilación mecánica invasiva constituye uno de los pilares terapéuticos, sin embargo, también puede desarrollar injuria pulmonar por barotrauma. En ese contexto, el uso de oxigenación por membrana extracorpórea (ECMO) supone una estrategia adicional para mejorar el intercambio gaseoso y reducir el daño inducido por la ventilación mecánica. Se presenta el caso de una paciente con síndrome de asma crítico que requirió ECMO por barotrauma grave.


Abstract Critical asthma syndrome is a life-threatening medical condition that can lead to irreversible hypoxia or cardiorespiratory arrest. Invasive mechanical ventilation is one of the therapeutic pillars, however, it can also develop ventilator-induced lung injury. For this reason, the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) could be an additional strategy to improve gas exchange and reduce damage induced by mechanical ventilation. We present the case of a patient with critical asthma syndrome who required ECMO due to severe barotrauma.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCCIÓN: La cantidad de pacientes asmáticos que asisten al sistema público de salud es cada vez mayor, no obstante, la tasa de adherencia al tratamiento es muy baja, siendo los adolescentes quienes presentan mayor porcentaje de abandono al tratamiento, inasistencia a sus controles y gran conflicto decisional (CD). El OBJETIVO de este estudio fue evaluar el efecto de la aplicación de consejerías sobre el CD en relación al tratamiento del asma y el nivel de control de su enfermedad. MATERIALES Y MÉTODOS: Estudio pre-experimental que reclutó a 32 niños asmáticos entre 10 a 14 años de edad del policlínico respiratorio infantil del hospital Carlos Van Buren de Valparaíso. Solo 15 niños estuvieron dispuestos a participar en el estudio quienes completaron la totalidad de las sesiones de consejería. Para determinar el grado de CD de su patología, se aplicó la Escala de Conflicto Decisional de Ottawa; y para el nivel del control del asma, se usó la Escala Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA). RESULTADOS: La edad media del grupo de niños fue de 12,06 ± 1,16 años. Finalizada la intervención, el nivel de control de asma se mantuvo y la media del CD disminuyó de 34,05 ± 4,59 a 18,02 ± 3,01 puntos (p < 0,05; t de Student para muestras pareadas). Un 73,3% de los pacientes disminuyó su nivel de conflicto decisional. CONCLUSIÓN: Las consejerías de apoyo decisional demostraron tener efectos positivos en la población estudiada.


INTRODUCTION: The number of asthmatic patients attending the public health system is increasing. However, the rate of adherence to treatment is very low. Adolescents have the largest percentage of abandonment to treatment, lack of control and a great decisional conflict (DC). The OBJECTIVE of this study was to evaluate the effect of the application of counseling on the DC in relation to asthma treatment and the level of control of their disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pre-experimental study that recruited 32 asthmatic children from 10 to 14 years-old, from the children's respiratory outpatients clinic of Carlos Van Buren hospital in Valparaíso, Chile. Only 15 children were willing to participate in the study and completed all of the counseling sessions. To determine the degree of DC of its pathology, the Ottawa Decision Conflict Scale was applied; and for the Asthma Control level, the Global Initiative for Asthma Scale (GINA) was used. RESULTS: Mean children age was 12.06 ± 1.16 years-old. After the intervention, the level of Asthma Control was maintained and the mean of the DC decrease from 34.05 ± 4.59 to 18.02 ± 3.01 points (p < 0.05; paired Student's t-test). 73.3% of the patients lowered their level of decisional conflict. CONCLUSION: The counseling of decision support proved to have positive effects on the population studied.

ABSTRACT

El asma bronquial es la enfermedad crónica más frecuente en la infancia. Sin embargo, en Chile existe un importante subdiagnóstico. Es fundamental estar atentos a los síntomas y signos que nos hacen sospechar el diagnóstico para iniciar un tratamiento oportuno, que asegure un buen control de la enfermedad. Debemos sospechar asma en todo escolar que presente cuadros repetidos de obstrucción bronquial. El diagnóstico debe confirmarse con pruebas de función pulmonar que demuestren obstrucción variable al flujo aéreo y respuesta broncodilatadora positiva. El tratamiento se basa en dos pilares fundamentales: la educación y el tratamiento farmacológico. Las actividades educativas deben incluir contenidos acerca de la enfermedad y su tratamiento, se debe monitorizar constantemente la adherencia al tratamiento de mantención, enseñar la técnica inhalatoria correcta y revisar en cada control, entregar un plan de acción escrito personalizado frente al inicio de una crisis y realizar controles médicos periódicos. Con respecto al tratamiento farmacológico, el estándar de oro es el uso de corticoides inhalados permanentes, en la mínima dosis posible que logre el control de la enfermedad. El objetivo del tratamiento es la supresión de los síntomas diarios y de las crisis. El tratamiento se irá incrementando en la medida que no haya una respuesta adecuada, pero antes de aquello se debe evaluar la adherencia al tratamiento de mantención, la técnica inhalatoria, presencia de comorbilidades asociadas y exposición ambiental. En el paciente leve, que esté sin tratamiento permanente, el rescate debe realizarse con broncodilatadores asociados siempre a un corticoide inhalado. Este consenso es una guía de apoyo para mejorar el diagnóstico oportuno, tratamiento y control del asma en el escolar.


Bronchial asthma is the most prevalent chronic condition among children, however, in Chile, it is underdiagnosed. This may be due to medical professionals failing to recognize the disease. It is essential to be aware of the symptoms and signs that are suggestive of the disease in order to begin an appropriate treatment to achieve disease control. Asthma must be suspected in school age children who present repeated episodes of bronchial obstruction. The diagnosis should be confirmed with lung function tests that demonstrate variable airflow obstruction with a positive bronchodilator response. Treatment is based on two fundamental pillars: education and pharmacological treatment. Educational activities must include: information about the disease and its treatment, regular monitoring of treatment adherence, teaching and reviewing the correct inhalation technique at every checkup, developing a personalized written action plan and scheduling regular follow-up appointments. The gold standard for treatment is maintenance inhaled corticosteroids, in the lowest possible dose that enables disease control. The goal of the treatment is to eliminate daily symptoms and asthma crisis. Therapy should be increased if control is not achieved, but before starting it, adherence to maintenance treatment, inhalation technique, presence of associated comorbidities and environmental exposure should be evaluated. In the mild patient, who is not receiving maintenance therapy, rescue treatment should be done with bronchodilators, always associated with inhaled corticosteroids. This consensus is a guide to improve the diagnosis, treatment and control of asthma in schoolchildren

ABSTRACT

A acupuntura se caracteriza pela estimulação de pontos cutâneos específicos por meio do uso de agulhas. A auriculoterapia consiste na estimulação mecânica de pontos específicos do pavilhão auricular com esferas de aço, ouro, prata, plástico, agulhas ou sementes de mostarda. A acupuntura é recomendada para promoção, manutenção e recuperação da saúde, bem como prevenção de agravos e doenças. Além disso, parece propiciar a liberação de neurotransmissores e outras substâncias responsáveis pela promoção da analgesia. A auriculoterapia promove a regulação psíquico orgânica do indivíduo. Ambas as prá ticas foram incorporadas no SUS mediante Portaria nº 971, de 03 de maio de 2006. Qual é a eficácia e a segurança da acupuntura e da auriculoterapia para o tratamento de asma em adultos e/ou idosos? As buscas foram realizadas em sete bases de dados sem restrição de ano de publicação. Os critérios de inclusão foram: revisões sistemáticas em inglês, português e espanhol que avaliaram os efeitos da acupuntura e auriculoterapia no tratamento de asma na população adulta e idosa. A avaliação da qualidade metodológica foi realizada por meio da ferramenta AMSTAR 2, feita por uma pesquisadora e revisada por outra. Nesta revisão rápida, produzida em cinco dias, foram utilizados atalhos metodológicos, de maneira que apenas o processo de seleção foi realizado em duplicidade e de forma independente. De 142 relatos recuperados nas bases de dados, foram incluídas cinco revisões sistemáticas que atenderam aos critérios de elegibilidade. A pergunta de pesquisa incluiu acupuntura e auriculoterapia, o que orientou as buscas de evidências. No entanto, não foram identificados estudos sobre auriculoterapia e a maioria das revisões analisou um tipo específico de acupuntura, denominada farmacopuntura, uma técnica que combina acupuntura com injeção de ervas medicinais. De maneira geral, a farmacopuntura combinada ou não a outros tratamentos, mostrou melhores resultados, em relação a seus comparadores, nos seguin tes desfechos: taxa de resposta e melhora dos sintomas de adultos com asma, melhora da Capacidade Vital Forçada (CVF), do Volume Expiratório Forçado em 1 segundo (VEF1), da relação VEF1/CVF e no Pico de Fluxo Expiratório (PFE). Os resultados sobre acupuntura foram melhores com relação a taxa de melhora dos sintomas de asma e do VEF1. Duas revisões avaliaram a segurança das intervenções, com relatos sobre ocorrência de eventos adversosleves com o uso da farmacopuntura. Esta revisão identificou alguns benefícios da acupuntura e farmacopuntura como tratamento adjuvante em pessoas com asma. No entanto, é necessário interpretar estes resultados com cautela, devido à diversidade de terapias utilizadas nos estudos primários e à qualidade metodológica das revisões sistemáticas, avaliadas como de confiança baixa ou criticamente baixa.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCCIÓN: En los últimos años se ha observado un aumento significativo de la tasa de hospitalización por asma en niños. En la actualidad se desconocen las tasas regionales y la tasa de mortalidad. OBJETIVO: Conocer las tasas regionales de hospitalización por asma en niños y determinar la mortalidad en este grupo etario. PACIENTES Y MÉTODO: Se calculó la tasa de hospitalización por asma en las 15 regiones del país existentes al momento de realizar el estudio, entre el año 2008 y 2014, en base al número de egresos hospitalarios por región y de las poblaciones expuestas al riesgo de hospitalización. La tasa de mor talidad se obtuvo calculando el cociente entre el número de defunciones por asma en niños de 5 a 15 años y la población expuesta. RESULTADOS: La tasa más alta de hospitalización la presentó la V región con 7,6 por 10.000 habitantes. La tasa media de hospitalización en las distintas regiones fue similar a la de la Región Metropolitana, con la excepción de 4 regiones. La tasa global de mortalidad por asma en niños de 5 a 15 años para el periodo analizado es de 0,37 por 100.000 habitantes. CONCLUSIONES: La mayoría de las regiones del país presentan tasas de hospitalización similares a la Región Metropolitana. La V Región presenta la tasa más alta de hospitalización. La tasa global de mortalidad por asma en niños de 5 a 15 años es de 0,37 por 100.000 habitantes.


INTRODUCTION: In recent years, there has been a significant increase in asthma hospitalization rates in children, however, regional and mortality rates are yet unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine regional asth ma hospitalization rates in children and the global mortality rate in this age group. PATIENTS AND METHOD: We determined asthma hospitalization rates in the 15 regions of the country existing at the time of the study, between 2008 and 2014, based on the number of hospital discharges in each region and the population at risk of hospitalization. The mortality rate was obtained using the ratio between deaths due to asthma in children aged 5 to 15 and the exposed population. RESULTS: the 5th region presented the highest hospitalization rate (7.6 per 10,000 inhabitants). Except for 4 regions, the median hospitalization rates of the different regions were similar to those found in the Metropolitan Region. The overall mortality rate due to asthma in 5 to 15-year-old children was 0.37 per 100,000 inhabitants in the analyzed period. CONCLUSIONS: most regions of the country have similar hospitalization rates to the Metropolitan Region and the 5th region presents the highest hospitali zation rate due to asthma. The global mortality rate in children between 5 and 15 years old is 0.37 per 100,000 inhabitants.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association among characteristics of primary health care center (PHCC) with hospitalizations for primary care sensitive conditions (PCSC) in Brazil. METHOD In this study, a cross-sectional ecological study was performed. This study analyzed the 27 capitals of Brazil's federative units. Data were aggregated from the following open access databases: National Program for Access and Quality Improvement in Primary Care, the Hospital Information System of Brazilian Unified Health System and Annual Population Census conducted by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics. Associations were estimated among characteristics of primary care with the number of three PCSC as the leading causes of hospitalization in children under-5 population in Brazil: asthma, diarrhea, and pneumonia. RESULTS In general, PHCC showed limited structural adequacy (37.3%) for pediatric care in Brazil. The capitals in South and Southeast regions had the best structure whereas the North and Northeast had the worst. Fewer PCSC hospitalizations were significantly associated with PHCC which presented appropriate equipment (RR: 0.98; 95%CI: 0.97-0.99), structural conditions (RR: 0.98; 95%CI: 0.97-0.99), and signage/identification of professionals and facilities (RR: 0.98; 95%CI: 0.97-0.99). Higher PCSC hospitalizations were significantly associated with PHCC with more physicians (RR: 1.23, 95%CI: 1.02-1.48), it forms (RR: 1.01, 95%CI: 1.01-1.02), and more medications (RR: 1.02, 95%CI: 1.01-1.03) CONCLUSION Infrastructural adequacy of PHCC was associated with less PCSC hospitalizations, while availability medical professional and medications were associated with higher PCSC hospitalizations.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of home visits in a group of children and adolescents with severe asthma by using the inhalation technique score and adherence rates to drug treatment. Method: A 12-month randomized controlled trial involving patients aged between three and 17 years under regular follow-up treatment at a pediatric pulmonology outpatient clinic of a university hospital in southeastern Brazil. A group of patients received only outpatient consultations and the other group received home visits from nurses in addition to outpatient consultations. The differences between groups were analyzed through the outcomes of inhalation technique scores and treatment adherence rate. Results: Participation of 29 patients. In the intervention group, there was a statistically significant increase in inhalation technique scores (p<0.05) and elimination of critical errors between the first and the second evaluation, and results were maintained in the third evaluation. In the control group, there were no significant changes in inhalation technique scores. Rates of adherence to drug treatment in both groups did not rise. Conclusion: Home visits were effective for improving inhalation technique scores in patients with severe asthma. Brazilian Registry of Clinical Trials: RBR-8GZWZP.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To observe the effect of moxa-cone moxibustion at lung's back-@*METHODS@#Sixty SPF-grade healthy male Balb/c mice were randomly divided into a normal group, a model group, an LY294002 group (LY group), an electroacupuncture (EA) group and a moxibustion group, 12 mice in each group. Asthma model was replicated by using ovalbumin (OVA) sensitization. Except the mice in the normal group, all the mice were intraperitoneally injected with sensitization solution (containing 15 μg of OVA and 30 mg of aluminum hydroxide) on the 1st day, 7th day and 14th day, 0.5 mL per mice; from the 15th day, 1% OVA solution was atomized for 20 min, once a day for 2 weeks; the mice in the normal group was treated with identical operations but with 0.9% sodium chloride solution. The mice in the LY group were treated with injection of LY294002 at tail vein on the 13th day, 14th day and 15th day. At the beginning of the 15th day, The mice in the EA group were treated with EA at "Feishu" (BL 13) and "Zhongfu" (LU 1) with disperse-dense wave, frequency of 2 Hz/20 Hz, intensity of 1 mA, 15 min each time, once a day for 2 weeks. The mice in the moxibustion group was treated with moxa-cone moxibustion at "Feishu" (BL 13) and "Zhongfu" (LU 1) from the 15th day, three moxa-cones per acupoint, once a day for 2 weeks. On the 16th day, 18th day and 22nd day, the incubation period of asthma was recorded. On the 29th day, all the samples were collected. The expressions of IL-17 and IL-10 in serum and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) were detected by ELISA method. The pathological changes of lung tissue were observed by HE staining. The percentage of Th17, Treg and Th17/Treg ratio in spleen tissue were detected by flow cytometry method.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the normal group, the incubation period of asthma in the model group was significantly shortened (@*CONCLUSION@#The Th17/Treg is imbalanced in asthmatic body.

ABSTRACT

The main source of Vitamin D is the bioconversion of 7-dehydrocholesterol to cholecalciferol, however, the level of sun exposition has been drastically reduced during the last decades, so it is not unusual to find a high deficit of Vitamin D in the population. There is evidence to suggest that the deficit of Vitamin D is associated with a worse evolution of asthma and a greater risk of serious exacerbations. Possibly prenatal Vitamin D supplementation to pregnant mothers reduces the risk of wheezing and asthma in the offspring, and supplementation to asthmatic children could improve the evolution of the disease.


La principal fuente de Vitamina D es la bioconversión del 7-dehidrocolesterol a colecalciferol, sin embargo, el nivel de exposición solar se ha reducido drásticamente durante las últimas décadas, por lo que no es extraño encontrar un déficit elevado de Vitamina D en la población. Existe evidencia que sugiere que el déficit de Vitamina D se asocia a peor evolución del asma y mayor riesgo de exacerbaciones graves. Posiblemente la suplementación prenatal de Vitamina D a madres embarazadas reduzca el riesgo de sibilancias y asma en los hijos que nacerán, y la suplementación a niños asmáticos podría mejorar la evolución de la enfermedad.

ABSTRACT

Asthma is a chronic obstructive respiratory disease with high prevalence in children. Several factors may trigger asthma symptoms, including exercise, which can lead to exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB). Although physical exercise may represent a risk factor for triggering bronchial obstruction in asthmatics, studies have also indicated several positive effects. Thus, this article aimed to summarize current evidence on the effects of exercise training in children with asthma. There is substantial available evidence on the topic. Most of the findings show that exercise induce positive effects, including the increase of aerobic fitness, decrease of EIB levels, as well as an increase in both disease control and quality of life levels in asthmatic children. As for possible influencing factors in order to obtain exercise-induced positive effects, an adequate prescription of exercise intensity highlights and should be personalized, as well as established close to the anaerobic threshold. Thus, considering the evidence showing beneficial effects and the fact that the practice of physical exercise consists of a low cost and safe non-pharmacological therapy, supervised, personalized and individual recommendation of exercise training by health professionals are indicated to asthmatic children.


El asma es una enfermedad respiratoria obstructiva crónica con alta prevalencia en niños. Varios factores pueden desencadenar síntomas de asma, incluido el ejercicio, que puede conducir a la broncoconstricción inducida por el ejercicio (BIE). Aunque el ejercicio físico puede representar un factor de riesgo para desencadenar la obstrucción bronquial en los asmáticos, estudios también han indicado varios efectos positivos. Este artículo tiene como objetivo resumir la evidencia actual sobre los efectos del entrenamiento físico en niños con asma. Hay evidencia sustancial disponible sobre el tema. La mayoría de los hallazgos muestran que el ejercicio induce efectos positivos, incluido el aumento de la aptitud aeróbica, la disminución de los niveles de la BEI, así como un aumento tanto en el control de la enfermedad como en los niveles de calidad de vida en niños asmáticos. Se destaca la importancia de una prescripción de la intensidad del ejercicio adecuada y personalizada, cerca del umbral anaeróbico, para obtener los efectos positivos inducidos por el ejercicio. Por lo tanto, considerando la evidencia que muestra efectos beneficiosos y el hecho de que la práctica del ejercicio físico consiste en una terapia no farmacológica, segura y de bajo costo, el entrenamiento físico supervisado, personalizado e individualizado por parte de profesionales de la salud es recomendado para niños asmáticos.

ABSTRACT

Patients hospitalized for acute asthma treated with a pre-established algorithm could decrease hospital stay and critical bed (PICU) requirement. The objective of this article was to implement and evaluate the impact of a pre-established algorithm to treat children hospitalized for acute asthma. It is a cross-sectional and comparative study, with a prospective sample for convenience, of asthmatic children between 5 and 15 years admitted during 2017 without response to the first line of treatment in the emergency department. Patients with cardiorespiratory comorbidities and with direct admission to PICU were excluded. An algorithm was applied for 2 hours and its effectiveness was evaluated by a clinical score (PAS: English Pediatric Asthma Score). 55 patients were admitted, mean age 8.02 years, 41.8% female. The PAS decreased from 8 to 5 points at the end of the algorithm (p <0.001). When comparing the results obtained with the group treated the previous year, without algorithm application in 51 patients with similar demographic characteristics, a shorter hospitalization was observed (0.6 days versus 0.95 days (p <0.0368)). The algorithm in acute asthma unified treatment criteria and times in its application. A rapid decrease in clinical score and a shorter hospital stay were observed.


Los pacientes hospitalizados por asma agudo tratados con un algoritmo preestablecido, podrían disminuir la estancia hospitalaria y requerimiento de cama crítica (UCIP). El objetivo de este trabajo fue el de implementar y evaluar el impacto de un algoritmo preestablecido para tratar a niños hospitalizados por asma aguda. Es un estudio transversal y comparativo, con una muestra prospectiva por conveniencia, de niños asmáticos entre 5 y 15 años ingresados durante el 2017 sin respuesta a la primera línea de tratamiento en el servicio de urgencia. Se excluyeron pacientes con comorbilidades cardiorespiratorias y con ingreso directo a UCIP. Se aplicó un algoritmo durante 2 horas evaluando su efectividad mediante puntaje clínico (PAS, por su sigla en inglés Pediatric Asthma Score). Ingresaron 55 pacientes, edad media 8,02 años, 41,8% sexo femenino. El PAS disminuyó de 8 a 5 puntos al finalizar algoritmo (p <0,001). Al comparar los resultados obtenidos con el grupo tratado el año anterior, sin aplicación de algoritmo en 51 pacientes con similares características demográficas, se observó una hospitalización más breve (0,6 días versus 0,95 días (p < 0,0368)). El algoritmo en asma aguda unificó criterios de tratamiento y los tiempos en su aplicación. Se observó una rápida disminución del puntaje clínico y menor estancia hospitalaria.

ABSTRACT

Este documento é uma revisão do protocolo de asma grave da SMPCT de 2015, que se fez necessária devido à atualização de avanços em pesquisas, principalmente em fenotipagem/genotipagem e terapêutica da asma grave, além de asma grave na pediatria. A maioria da publicações relata que 5% a 10% dos asmáticos podem apresentar asma grave. Porém, levantamento na Holanda encontrou uma prevalência menor, de 3,6% ou 10,4/10000 habitantes, que parece ser mais próximo da realidade. Este protocolo tem como população alvo os pacientes com asma grave, adultos e pediátricos, conforme definições de asma grave da"International ERS/ATS guidelines on definition, evaluation and treatment of severe asthma" de 2014 e GINA 2018.1,3 Seus potenciais utilizadores são especialistas em doenças respiratórias que lidam com asma grave, e que devem ser os responsáveis pela aplicação do protocolo, e também clínicos gerais, pediatras, médicos de cuidados primários, enfermeiros, fisioterapeutas e outros profissionais da saúde. É aconselhável consulta com um especialista em asma nos seguintes casos: asma de difícil diagnóstico, suspeita de asma ocupacional, asma persistente não controlada com exacerbações frequentes, asma com risco de morte, eventos adversos significativos ou suspeita de subtipos de asma grave.4 Este documento não tem a intenção de instituir um tratamento padronizado, mas estabelecer bases racionais para decisões em pacientes com asma grave, pois as recomendações não conseguem abranger toda a complexidade do julgamento clínico em casos individuais. Os autores recomendam sua revisão e atualização no período máximo de 3 anos, ou, se necessário, em tempo menor.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a potent proinflammatory mediator that is produced in increased amounts in the lungs of asthmatic humans and horses. The present pilot study, shows that mesenchymal stromal cells can modulate alveolar macrophage function in asthma, interfering in the activity of PAF, being another potential pathway for mesenchymal stromal cells benefits in asthma.
