Show Notes

Reliever Inhaled Glucocorticoid Treatment

Black and Latinx patients are disproportionately impacted by asthma. In fact, asthma mortality rates are twice as high in Black patients compared to White patients. Are there different treatment options to help improve mortality in these populations? Join host Geoff Wall with guest Dr. Matt Trump as they discuss the PREPARE trial.

The GameChanger
Emerging data suggests that using a bronchodilator with an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) may improve asthma exacerbation symptoms in diverse patient populations. This is contrary to current standards of care that encourage the use of a short-acting bronchodilator alone.
