Answer

Inpatient education by trained lay volunteers in patients who are admitted with status asthmaticus was associated with improvement in posthospitalization and better adherence to their inhaler management. [1]

In a study by Miller et al, [72] an asthma protocol developed by the hospital and based on the guidelines of the National Institutes of Health in children with status asthmaticus resulted in improved time to treatment and better outcome. This was studied in children aged 3-11 years.
