Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    According to the GAPP survey, who initiates discussion about asthma medication side effects, adult patients or physicians?

    • A.

      Adult patients are most likely to initiate the conversation

    • B.

      Physicians are most likely to initiate the conversation

    • C.

      Adult patients and physicians both thought they initiated the conversation themselves

    • D.

      This conversation frequently didn’t occur

    Correct Answer
    C. Adult patients and physicians both thought they initiated the conversation themselves
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that adult patients and physicians both thought they initiated the conversation themselves. This means that both parties believed they were the ones starting the discussion about asthma medication side effects. It suggests that there is a shared responsibility and interest in addressing this topic, with both patients and physicians actively engaging in conversations about potential side effects.

    The risks of (Glucocorticosteroid, GCS) corticosteroids use decrease when the medications are inhaled, at a low dose with a newer drug with negative growth studies. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that inhaled glucocorticosteroid (GCS) corticosteroids have a lower risk of side effects compared to other forms of corticosteroids. This is because when the medication is inhaled, it is delivered directly to the lungs and has a localized effect, reducing the systemic absorption and potential for systemic side effects. Additionally, newer drugs with negative growth studies indicate that they have been studied extensively and have shown no negative effects on growth, further decreasing the risks associated with their use. Therefore, it is true that the risks of GCS corticosteroids decrease when the medications are inhaled, at a low dose with a newer drug with negative growth studies.

    Multiple oral corticosteroid bursts over years of time can produce a dose-dependent reduction in bone mineral accretion and (increased risk for osteopenia) in children with asthma.  Inhaled corticosteroid use might do the same in boys progressing through puberty, but this risk is likely to be outweighed by the ability to reduce the amount of oral corticosteroids used in these children.    

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Multiple oral corticosteroid bursts over years can lead to a decrease in bone mineral accretion and an increased risk for osteopenia in children with asthma. Inhaled corticosteroid use may also have a similar effect in boys going through puberty, but the benefits of reducing the need for oral corticosteroids outweigh this risk. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Studies show cataracts and glaucoma risks only go up when at high doses of inhaled steroids.  At low doses there is not much risk shown. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that studies have shown an increase in the risks of cataracts and glaucoma only when high doses of inhaled steroids are used. At low doses, there is not much risk shown. Therefore, the correct answer is true, indicating that the statement is supported by evidence from studies.

    What is the #1 risk to patients with asthma? 

    • A.

      Treated with oral corticosteroid

    • B.

      Treated, stepped-down doses of inhaled corticosteroids

    • C.

      Treated with greater than recommended doses of inhaled corticosteroid

    • D.

      Untreated poorly controlled disease

    • E.

      Treated with recommended doses of inhaled corticosteroid

    Correct Answer
    D. Untreated poorly controlled disease
    Explanation
    Untreated poorly controlled disease is the #1 risk to patients with asthma because it can lead to severe symptoms and exacerbations. When asthma is not properly managed, inflammation and constriction of the airways can occur, making it difficult for the patient to breathe. This can result in frequent hospitalizations, decreased quality of life, and even life-threatening asthma attacks. Therefore, it is crucial for patients with asthma to receive appropriate treatment and regularly monitor their symptoms to ensure their disease is well-controlled.
