The Emergency Department Asthma Care Pathway (EDACP) is a standardized approach to asthma care delivery in the emergency department that is based on current clinical guidelines. The pathway consists of two pathways: adult and pediatric. The Paediatric EDACP supports children ages 1-17 years with a history of asthma or previous episode of wheezing requiring treatment. In contrast, The Adult EDACP supports those 16 years and older with a history of asthma, chronic obstruction pulmonary disease (COPD) with asthma or a previous episode of wheezing requiring treatment. The pathways ensure, appropriate assessment of the severity of the exacerbation; evidence-based asthma treatment, patient education prior to discharge, comprehensive discharge instructions and clear plans for follow-up care.
