Lungs Asthma Treatment Mnemonic

I made this small and useful technique to remember the proper treatment of asthma. The first two bullets are the pillars of asthma treatment.

A drenergics (beta 2)
S teroids
T heophylline
H ydration
M onoclonal antibodies (anti-IgE)
A ntagonists of LTs / Chromones

As a general reminder, intermittent asthma is treated with short-acting adrenergics. Persistent asthma adds inhaled steroids. Severe persistent asthma can be treated with oral steroids.

Theophylline, which has become widely unpopular, is beneficial against night symptoms. Chromones and antagonists of LTs are beneficial against exercise-induced asthma. Monoclonal antibodies (i.e. omalizumab) are the newest drug in asthma treatment.

I hope this helps.
