FHA to Host Webinar on Treating Asthma in the ED

FHA, along with the Florida Department of Health's Asthma Program and the Florida Asthma Coalition, will host part one of a two-part webinar series that focuses on asthma treatment in the emergency department (ED), and transitioning asthma care from the ED to prevent repeat visits, on Tuesday, May 14, from 1- 2 p.m.

The webinar, "Optimal Asthma Treatment in the Emergency Department," will feature presentations on trends in hospitalization and emergency department visits and changes, an overview of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's (NHLBI) EPR-3 Guidelines for Asthma Management in the Emergency Department and selected pharmacologic aspects of asthma management.
