Pediatric Respiratory Assessment Measure (PRAM) for Asthma Exacerbation Severity

Description: The Pediatric Respiratory Assessment Measure is a medical calculator to determine asthma exacerbation severity. It assesses factors such as oxygen saturation, suprasternal retractions, scalene muscle contractions, air entry, and wheezing.

Modified Asthma Predictive Index (mAPI)

Description: The Modified Asthma Predictive Index is an assessment tool that predicts future atopic asthma in pediatric patients with recurrent wheezing. It is only applicable in young children with four or more episodes of wheezing per year. The mAPI’s predictive ability depends heavily on prevalence of asthma in the general population.

Decision Tree: Acute Pediatric Asthma
