The Emergency Department Asthma Care Pathway (EDACP) is a standardized approach to asthma care delivery in the emergency department that is based on clinical guidelines.

The pathway includes:

  • appropriate assessment of the severity of the exacerbation;
  • evidence-based asthma treatment
  • patient education prior to discharge
  • comprehensive discharge instructions
  • clear plans for follow-up care

The Paediatric EDACP supports children ages 1-17 years with a history of asthma or previous episode of wheezing requiring treatment.

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.
