Short-acting B2-agonists (SABA) have been the mainstay of rescue therapy in asthma, regardless of disease severity. However, we must ask ourselves: at what point does SABA use indicate poor asthma control, and can we do more to prevent exacerbations and oral corticosteroid exposure? This program will examine the relationship between SABA reliance, disease control, and patient behavior and review real world evidence updates to highlight a window of opportunity to prevent exacerbations.
