2020 Expert Panel Updates – Indoor Allergen Mitigation: GHHI’s Comments on NHLBI Asthma Management Guidelines

By Green & Healthy Homes Initiative

In December 2020, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health released a set of focused updates to the Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma (EPR-3), which was originally published in 2012.

In this issue brief, the Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) discusses the 2020 Expert Panel Updates related to Section III Recommendations for Indoor Allergen Mitigation in Management of Asthma, and we provide our own notes on these new recommendations. The 2020 NHLBI Expert Panel reviewed and provided focused recommendations on six different priority areas of the EPR-3 guidelines. The Guidelines related to environmental assessment and remediation are only strengthened by the four recommendations found in Section III, which relates to environmental control of home asthma triggers.
