Overview

This comprehensive account of the biological basis and clinical management of childhood asthma and other wheezing disorders brings together all the aspects necessary for full understanding by residents or practicing respiratory physicians or pediatricians. The text reviews the nature of childhood asthma, its developmental and biological origins and its impact both for the individual and for society. Each section brings together the scientific background with practical clinical information, reviewed where possible with an evidence base in mind in order to provide the reader with informed guidance to best clinical practice. The second section is thoroughly revised and updated throughout to reflect the significant developments that have occurred in recent years, including advances in medical genetics, new techniques for investigation of inflammatory processes and for the evaluation of the impact of childhood asthma, additional information on the etiology of this condition, and leukotriene receptor agonists, the first new pharmacological therapy to emerge for 20 years. Key Features:
• The only up-to-date text available devoted to asthma in childhood
• Brings together the underlying basic sciences and clinical management as relevant to the practicing physician
• Supports evidence-based medicine to encourage best clinical practice
• Places childhood asthma in a wider social context with sections on teaching and training for health professionals outside the hospital setting and the delivery of care in the community
