Magnesium Nebulization Utilization in Management of Pediatric Asthma

The investigators plan the following specific aims: Primary Objective: To examine if in children with acute asthma remaining in moderate to severe respiratory distress despite maximized initial bronchodilator and steroid therapy there is a reduction in hospitalization rate from the ED in those who receive nebulized Mg with salbutamol versus ...

Phase

Intramuscular Epinephrine as an Adjunctive Treatment for Severe Pediatric Asthma Exacerbation

Project Aim: To determine if intramuscular epinephrine is an effective adjunct to inhaled bronchodilators (2 agonists) for children with severe asthma exacerbation. Hypothesis: IM epinephrine is an efficacious adjunct to inhaled bronchodilators (2 agonists) for children with severe asthma exacerbation. Intervention: Subjects will be randomly assigned (50% chance) to receive ...

Financial Incentives to Reduce Pediatric Tobacco Smoke Exposures

The impact of continued cigarette usage is profoundly felt not only upon the primary smoker, but also among children where SHSe is linked with asthma exacerbations. Children with caregivers who are active smokers are more likely to utilize acute healthcare resources and miss more days of school due to asthma ...

Phase N/A

Inhaled Steroids for Pediatric Asthma at Pediatric Emergency Medicine Discharge

The primary objective is to determine the effect of prescribing inhaled corticosteroids in addition to short acting beta agonists and oral corticosteroids (if indicated) from the Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) on relapse rates within 28 days. Secondary objectives include the effect of this intervention on hospitalization rates and asthma quality ...

The Development of Novel Clinical Tests to Diagnose and Monitor Asthma in Preschool Children

In Canada, the most common chronic disease of childhood is asthma. Childhood asthma places a significant burden on the health care system (refn). No objective preschool asthma diagnostic tools exist, and the current gold-standard, the Asthma Predictive Index, does not provide information about lung function and symptom management. In this ...

Phase

Trial of One Versus Two Doses of Dexamethasone for Pediatric Asthma Exacerbation

A randomized double blinded placebo controlled trial comparing one dose of dexamethasone administered in the Emergency Department with two doses, the first given in the emergency department and the second 24 hours after the index ED visit.

Phase

Pediatric Arm of DZL All Age Asthma Cohort

About 25-30% of children have at least one episode of wheeze before their 3rd birthday, but considerable clinical heterogeneity exists. Many of these children become symptom-free between 3 and 8 years of age, but some go on to persistent asthma in later childhood and adulthood. Despite its high prevalence, still ...

Phase N/A

A Computer-Based ED Intervention to Improve Pediatric Asthma Medicine Adherence

The investigators have used focus groups to get ideas from parents of children with asthma to best design the intervention. This has helped us create the questions that are being used in the intervention, and make the computer program appealing and acceptable to parents of children with asthma. The investigators ...

Phase N/A

MCT and Capsaicin Provocation Challenge in Diagnosis of Chronic Cough

The present study has the following objectives: to assess the prevalence of BHR in non-smoking adults with a chronic cough, to assess the prevalence of BHR in patients with UACS and GERD, to evaluate the relationship between BHR and cough reflex sensitivity, to assess the diagnostic accuracy of MCT in ...

Comparison of Vibrating Mesh Nebulizer Versus Jet Nebulizer in the Pediatric Asthma Patient a Randomized Controlled Trial

The purpose of this study is to compare clinical outcomes related to the current practice of using a jet nebulizer (JN) with aerosol mask (AM) or mouthpiece (MP) versus a vibrating mesh nebulizer (VMN) with a valved-mask (VM) or MP in the treatment of acute moderate to severe asthma in ...
