Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Consideration of the unified airway model when managing patients with rhinitis and or asthma allows a more comprehensive care plan and therefore improved patient outcomes. Asthma is linked to rhinitis both epidemiologically and biologically, and this association is even stronger in individuals with atopy. Rhinitis is not only associated with but is a risk factor for the development of asthma. Management of rhinitis improves asthma control. Early and aggressive treatment of allergic rhinitis may prevent the development of asthma. In patients with allergic rhinitis that is not sufficiently controlled by allergy medication, allergen-directed immunotherapy should be considered.
