Patients with respiratory conditions and no smoking status recorded
Compared with non-smokers with asthma, smokers with asthma have:
• more asthma symptoms
• worse asthma control
• a more rapid decline in lung function
• more airway inflammation
• less response to preventer medication
Therefore it is important that the smoking status is recorded for every patient diagnosed with a respiratory condition.
To effectively manage asthma and COPD patients through establishing adequate recording systems.
