I really like this aggressive approach. They have reduced mortality by 90%! Made a dent in Hospital stays
and Disability also. Probably old news here. Is it still proving effective? Hammer it quickly and keep more people away from the Hospital altogether.
It is hard to discuss oral steroid bursts, Theophylline, and even antibiotics on an outpatient basis, I have found. I am in States. I am sure others have different experiences. Like to see this approach become more common.
