We are delighted for Dr Dermot Ryan to share with you an important challenge in the management of severe asthma – identifying patients with hidden disease. Severe asthma patients who are referred to specialist care tend to manage their disease better, and lack of referrals have been associated with worse outcomes, including death. Identifying severe asthma patients hidden in primary care is a challenge, but it is necessary to adequately treat their disease.
