Abstract


Searching for exact ways and scheme of treatment and supervising asthma patients on long-acting form of b 2-agonist (Formoterol) therapy is still very actual. We studied 31 children (from 7 to 11 years) with moderate non-controled bronchial asthma during 12 weeks. As a basic therapy inhaled corticosteroids-mono or in a combination with Foradyle were used. Corresponding data on Childhood Asthma Control Test, lung function, electrocardiogram, serum potassium and glucose concentrations were monitoring clinically. No adverse reactions were seen. The results obtained for the case of combined therapy with formoterol point out the necessity of more frequent than prescribed observation of the patient state trend, with taking electrocardiography and especially compliance into account.
