Answer

Most patients have relief with proper home-environmental control, pharmacotherapy, and perhaps immunotherapy (for a small number of patients). However, acute asthma attacks are often medical emergencies that require emergency care. Therefore, some patients may visit the emergency department frequently. Unless patients develop impending respiratory failure because of a recalcitrant asthma attack, they are most likely to be monitored in an outpatient setting.
