  Stephen Teach Discusses Medication for Asthmatics with Medscape
February 13, 2014

Asthma expert Stephen Teach, MD, MPH, discusses medication options for young patients in the emergency department in Medscape Medical News, in response to a study published online in The Journal of Pediatrics.
Dr. Teach, who was not involved in this study, said the analysis suggests that children with acute asthma flare-ups may be given dexamethasone instead of “awful-tasting” prednisone to improve patient and parental satisfaction.
