05/01/2012 - "A diagnosis of PFA is made when any one of the following are present: (1) history of endotracheal intubation from asthma, (2) acute respiratory acidosis (pH < 7.35) or respiratory failure from acute severe asthma, (3) two or more episodes of acute pneumothorax or pneumomediastinum from asthma, (4) two or more episodes of acute severe asthma despite the use of long-term oral corticosteroids and other antiasthma medications. "
03/01/1988 - "The diagnostic criteria of potentially fatal asthma included at least one of the following four potentially fatal asthma events: 1) mechanical ventilation for respiratory arrest or failure, 2) acute respiratory acidosis that did not necessitate mechanical ventilation, 3) two episodes of acute pneumomediastinum or pneumothorax associated with status asthmaticus, 4) two or more hospitalizations for status asthmaticus in spite of long term oral corticosteroids. "
03/01/2008 - "For acute COPD exacerbations, systemic corticosteroids are effective in reducing treatment failures, while antibiotics reduce mortality and treatment failures in those requiring hospitalization and NPPV reduces the risk of intubation and in-hospital mortality, especially in those who demonstrate respiratory acidosis."
04/01/2012 - "Here we describe two otherwise healthy infants with severe bronchiolitis whose clinical course was complicated by marked bronchial obstruction and respiratory acidosis refractory to conventional medications (β-stimulants, anticholinergics and corticosteroids) and non-invasive positive pressure ventilation. "
01/01/1986 - "Patients with COPD receiving potassium-wasting diuretics who have chronic respiratory acidosis or are receiving corticosteroids or beta-agonists should undergo close monitoring of electrolyte levels and be considered for therapy with potassium supplements or, preferably, potassium-sparing agents."
