Purdue Asthma Corticosteroids use in Children Mini Scientific Literature review

Purdue University

Question Description

Help me study for my Nursing class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

This week, you will write a mini-scientific literature review. It is mini because you will only be reviewing two sources.

For this literature review assignment, we are going to give you a choice of three topics to choose from. Choose one for this assignment.

  1. COPD: treatment protocols
  2. Asthma: corticosteroids use in children and side effects
  3. DKA: treatment protocols

Remember, in a scientific review, focus your analysis on author’s hypothesis (thesis), scientific method used in the research, and the results of the study presented. In a scientific literature review, the reviewer (you) identifies what he/she perceives as the strengths and weaknesses of the study, and analyzes the author’s findings and conclusions.

For this review, be sure to:

  • Select two relevant and appropriate scholarly articles that address the topic you chose.
  • Present a thorough literature review of both articles by summarizing, synthesizing, and evaluating the materials.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the content presented in the articles.
  • Include a critical assessment of the sources. Do not simply include a summary of what you have read.
  • Incorporate citations into your body paragraphs; incorporate the essential and most relevant supporting evidence eloquently and appropriately.
  • Present your writing in a clear, organized manner.
  • Provide a strong introduction and conclusion, including further questions for research.
  • Use proper APA format with proper citations. Review APA Citations Here

Your literature review should be 2–3 pages in length. Remember, you will need to use APA formatting in your literature review and include a title page and a reference page.

Review the rubric for more details on how your assignment will be graded.

Author’s thesis
Hossny et al points out “despite the availability of several formulations of inhaled corticosteroids
(ICS) and delivery devices for treatment of childhood asthma and despite the development of
evidence-based guidelines, childhood asthma control remains suboptimal (Hossny, Rosario, &
Lee et al., 2016).” This means that childhood asthma is suboptimal regardless of the availability
of varying treatment deliveries governed by specific evidence-based guidelines. On the other
hand, Philip mentions that “in spite of these measurable effects of ICS on childhood growth, it is
important to understand that the safety profile of all ICS preparations, with focal antiinflammatory effects on the lung, is significantly better than oral glucocorticoids (Philip, 2014)”.
He insists on establishment of a safety profile because treatment options of childhood asthma
tend to have adverse effects on the child’s lungs.
Scientific method used in the research
Both research articles are review articles suggesting that their research does not contain
any first-hand co...
