If a person is diagnosed with Asthma, started with

  • Step 1: SABA as needed
  • If the pt uses SABA > 2 days a week, needs step up treatment
  • Step 2: Low dose inhaled glucocorticoids
  • Step 3: Low dose inhaled glucocorticoids + LABA
  • Step 4: Medium dose inhaled glucocorticoids + LABA
  • Step 5: High dose inhaled glucocorticoids + LABA
  • Step 6: High dose inhaled glucocorticoids + LABA + Oral steroids

SABA - short acting Beta agonists

LABA - long acting Beta agonists
