Authors: Barry F, Thompson LR, Ravandi B, Chang TP, Halterman JS, Szilagyi PG, Okelo SO Abstract Background: National asthma guidelines encourage use of patient surveys to aid clinical assessment. Little is known about how these should be administered in acute care settings such as the emergency department (ED). Objective: Evaluate if parents have a preference for interview vs. self-administered surveys in an ED, understand the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics by choice of survey mode of administration, and assess if there is a difference by mode in the parent's perception of an asthma management tool....

Although endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) improves asthma control in CRSwNP patients with asthma, the mechanism that underlies the response to surgical treatment is still unclear. We evaluated the relevance of changes in asthma control and changes in airway/systemic inflammation in eosinophilic CRSwNP patients with not well controlled...

We report a case of an 8-year-old boy who developed a cochineal allergy.Current disease history: He has been suffering from atopic dermatitis, bronchial asthma, and food allergies since childhood. At the age of seven, he experienced an unknown anaphylaxis reaction twice. When he was 8 years old, he ate a frankfurter containing hypoallergenic cochineal for the first time; cold sweat, intraoral discomfort, respiratory distress, and urticaria appeared throughout the body. His skin prick tests were positive, with a result of 2+to frankfurter and cochineal dyes (color value 0.1 and 0.01). In the immunoblot assay, binding of IgE...
