Emergency Department Education Materials

ED

The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program recommends that clinicians provide the following for patients before discharging them from the emergency department (ED):

  • Necessary medications and education on how to use them;
  • A referral for a follow-up appointment; and
  • Instructions in an ED asthma discharge plan for recognizing and managing relapse of the exacerbation or recurrence of airflow obstuction.

The Utah Asthma Task Force has developed asthma education materials to help an ED meet the needs of a patient.
