Depression, Anxiety, and Emergency Department Use for Asthma

A study by Naomi Bardach, MD, associate professor in the department of pediatrics at UCSF and core faculty member of the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, shows that 25% of patients with asthma have depression, anxiety, or both. That is a high number. Their higher emergency department use for asthma indicates that we (doctors, parents, teachers, etc) have an opportunity to improve their care and their outcomes.
