Abstract

Asthma (inflammatory conditions of the lung) is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, bronchospasm and reversible airflow obstructions. The incidence, prevalence, and mortality of the disease will increase by 20% with incoming 10 years if not controlled. This case study has been designed to report the irrational medication therapy of a 5 years old asthmatic child (a girl) who was admitted in a local hospital of Rawalpindi. SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) study of the child was taken into account and her mother was directly interviewed for complete past history. The case study showed that the child was administered Ventoline (salbutamol) continuously excluding her response to therapy. She was also given 2 antibiotics at a time without dose adjustment. Results obtained from the study clearly showed that BNF protocol was not followed for some medicines, and also no dose adjustment was done. There must be deep insight in rational therapy of treatment to cure the disease, otherwise both the ADRs and non-compliance will increase.
