Despite the use of effective medications to control asthma, severe exacerbations in asthma are still a major health risk and require urgent action on the part of the patient and physician to prevent a serious outcome such as hospitalisation or death. Moreover, severe exacerbations are associated with substantial huge healthcare costs, and psychological burden including anxiety and fear for patients and their families. The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) and the European Respiratory Society (ERS) set up a Task Force (TF) to search for a clear definition of severe exacerbations and to also define research questions and priorities. The statement includes comments from patients who were members of the TF.
