Asthma is a heterogeneous disease, usually characterized by chronic airway inflammation. It is defined by the history of respiratory symptoms such as wheeze, shortness of breath, chest tightness and cough that vary over time and in intensity, together with variable expiatory airflow limitation. This definition was reached by consensus, based on consideration of the characteristics that are typical of asthma and that distinguish it from other respiratory conditions .
Asthma is a problem worldwide, with an estimated 300 million affected individuals .It appears that the global prevalence of asthma ranges from 1% to 18% of the population in different countries .

- ICU admission according to oxygen saturation <81%, respiratory rate <6years old = >60 ≥6years old = >50 and heart rate <3 years old = >160 ≥3 years old= >140 [ Time Frame: within 15 minute ]Adequate evaluation of the severity of asthma exacerbation is important for the initial management of patients,using clinical parameters to decide ICU admission :oxygen saturation ,heart rate,respiratory rate and Degree of agitation and conscious level.
- hospital stay [ Time Frame: within one week ]we will assess all patients with asthma by using parameters which included in modified pulmonary index score"namely heart rate, respiratory rate, accessory muscle use, inspiratory-to expiratory flow ratio, degree of wheezing, and oxygen saturation in room air." using score in predicting hospital stay
