3 Things ATs Need To Know About Asthma

MDI and spacing chamber
MDI and spacing chamberDuring our last Sports Emergency Care White Paper Session, session leader Peter Bonadonna, EMT-P, presented Management of the Asthmatic Athlete.  As is typical of Mr. Bonadonna’s presentations, the session was very well received.  Here, we provide three take-home points from the presentation that all athletic trainers should know:
  1. Pulse Oximetry measures may be normal during a serious asthmatic event, declining only in the late dire stage of the event.  Therefore, PO2 measures should never be used to rule out a significant asthmatic event.
  2. Bradycardia (<60bpm) is an ominous sign associated with an asthmatic event that should trigger immediate activation of EMS.
  3. Athlete’s in the midst of a significant asthmatic event are less likely to benefit from use of a metered dose rescue inhaler.  ATs should always have access to spacing chambers, and should consider the appropriateness of Pre-EMS nebulizer and supplemental oxygen availability for at risk athletes.
