Overview

This third edition of Gershwin and Halpern's classic text, Bronchial Asthma, has been completely rewritten and expanded to include, from a variety of disciplines, the latest techniques and developments in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of asthma. With its new patient-oriented chapters on living with asthma, the book will empower the internist, the family practitioner, and the specialist in their struggle to reverse the current trend of increasing asthma mortality and to improve the quality of life of their patients and their families.

The editors have selected authoritative contributors to Bronchial Asthma, organizing it into four comprehensive parts:

I. Definitions and Host Responses to Bronchospasm defines asthma by analyzing its epidemiology, pathogenesis, and genetic roots, and illuminates the roles of mast cells and eosinophils. Chapters also cover the use of the pulmonary function laboratory and the differential diagnosis of asthma in children and adults.

II. Patient Management introduces the latest thinking and techniques about treatment and management of patients, including allergic evaluation, radiological treatment, the role of immunotherapy, the differential management of status asthmaticus, the management of pregnant asthmatics, and an evaluation of unconventional therapies.

III. Special Clinical Problems explores respiratory tract infections, the roles of anti-inflammatory agents, food additives, air pollution, aspergillosis, and occupational asthma. Four new chapters analyze exercise-induced asthma, asthma's relationship with chronic sinus disease, and the cross-cultural treatment of asthma in Europe and Japan.

IV. Living with Asthma, an entirely new section, examines asthma in school children, athletes and asthma, legal issues for asthmatics, the psychology of asthma, and the use of prospective disease management.

Booknews
This reference for primary care providers describes diagnostic techniques, pharmacotherapies, and new developments in the clinical assessment and treatment of asthma. The volume begins with a review of basic definitions, the mechanisms, and the medications of asthma. The main part of the text is devoted to the management and recognition of asthma and special problems such as asthma in the pregnant patient, the pediatric patient, and the patient with exercise-induced asthma. Coverage extends to allergic broncho-pulmonary aspergillosis, alternative and herbal medications, environmental and occupational effects, food additives, and recreational drug use. The psychological, social, and legal aspects of asthma also are addressed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
