Episode 70: More studies you need to know about – Part II
In episode 70, we continue with the “Two Mikes” and discuss a number of issues surrounding asthma treatment. We debate back and forth on the use of LABAs and their use alone or in combination and then come to complete agreement on the duration of prednisone for acute exacerbations. During the podcast James tries to steal the mic away and gets into trouble with Mike because Mike thought James was trying to steal Mike away from Mike.
1) LABAs in patients with asthma – risks and benefits
2) Short course (3 days) of oral steroids for asthma exacerbations
3) Doubling the dose of inhaled corticosteroids provides no benefit but what about quadrupling the dose?
