sherryStress can actually be a trigger for asthma. I think the problem here is that she has alwasys carried a heavy course, while the disease just started recently.+22019-07-10T21:16:26Z

sherryI would say the patient's asthma only got worse after her moving out. So its more allergen-related. Getting rid of the allergen is always better than upgrading medications.+12019-07-10T21:18:26Z
et-tu-bromocriptineRippp the "don't be a dick" strategy definitely failed me on this one. For some reason, I thought requesting the patient to ask someone else to change their smoking habits would be a tad too much. I can just picture UWorld smacking me with a "Although it is likely that the roommate's cessation of smoking could alleviate the patient's asthma exacerbations, this request would be out of the physician's scope....etc."+182019-07-26T16:27:24Z

krewfoo99There is no guarentee. They are basically asking what a trigger is for her asthma recurrence. Smoking in this scenario can be the cause of this patients symptoms. Dont dwell to deep into the question. +2019-11-02T19:23:14Z
