Severe asthma is a challenging topic, because this spans a lot of different patient phenotypes with varying severity and physiology. This chapter attempts to outline some general principles to guide management, but ultimately clinical judgement and serial evaluation at the bedside will trump all of this. The rarity, acuity, and heterogeneity of severe asthma make this difficult to study. Thus, there is relatively little evidence for most of the material discussed here.
