Resumen

MILAN LEMUS, Carlos Luis et al. Clinical and epidemiological characterization of patients with bronchial asthma in a rural doctor's office in Chivirico. MEDISAN [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.1. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in 45 asthmatic patients over age15, belonging to "El Mazo" family doctor's office in Chivirico, Guamá municipality, from January to December, 2006, including both months, with the purpose of characterizing them to know how evident bronchial asthma is in this rural area. A higher incidence of the disease was obtained in male patients between15 and 24 years. Most of the respondents had a low educational status and the highest percentage of them presented with an intermittent mild stage of the clinical pattern. It was also noted that smoking, a regular mode of life and the absence of intercrisis treatment were the most frequent risk factors in the case material.

Palabras clave : bronchial asthma; risk factors; toxic habits; mode of life; intercrisis treatment; primary health care.
