LABA/LAMA combination therapy seems to be superior to LABA/ICS combination therapy and should be used when long-acting bronchodilator monotherapy fails to control symptoms or reduce exacerbations.
This decrease in bronchodilator response has been observed with both short-acting and long-acting beta agonists.
I think we'll move to the triple [therapy], because breathlessness is a problem," she predicted, noting that bronchodilators address that symptom well.
It showed that the dual bronchodilator was superior in efficacy than the single bronchodilator, with a safety and tolerability profile similar to placebo.
Research to assess which, if any, demographic and clinical factors are associated with response to bronchodilator therapy is needed to further guide physicians in the treatment of bronchiolitis.
Conclusion: Pre bronchodilator criteria for detection of airflow obstruction overestimate the diagnosis of airflow obstruction and by using post bronchodilator criteria for airway obstruction on spirometry, decreases this over diagnosis of the condition.
