Today’s HAWMC propmpt:
Revise your condition’s Wikipedia page. Pretend you’re a Wikipedia writer – what sentence or paragraph should be included (in your opinion). Has Wikipedia forgotten to include your condition? Write a few quick facts and submit.
I think that because of the high prevalence of asthma, the Wikipedia page is fairly accurate and thorough. The only thing I would consider editing is this
While this is true, classification of severity needs to be done based on the most prevalent severity of asthma. For instance, if someone has FEV1 variability of less than 20% (intermittent asthma), but have nighttime awakenings more than once a week, they should be placed in the “moderate persistent” category and treated as such.
For example, I typically do NOT experience nighttime symptoms that wake me up. Yet, I do use my beta-2 agonist (rescue inhaler) daily on most days and have asthma symptoms daily. This puts me into the moderate persistent category (which is also what my allergist has told me).
However, sub-categorization of severe asthma phenotypes are beginning to be researched—you can read about that here.
