Clinical question for literature search

What are the effects of (1) asthma and (2) asthma treatment on pregnancy outcomes?

For example:

  • Does effective asthma control improve pregnancy outcomes [maternal, foetal] in women with asthma?
  • Does poorly controlled asthma [evidenced by exacerbations, acute asthma episodes, emergency visits] affect pregnancy outcomes in women with asthma?
  • Does asthma treatment affect pregnancy outcomes [maternal, foetal] in women with asthma?
