Overview

This edifying volume presents current clinical and research issues on the self-management of asthma from potential improvements and the evolving role of behavioral science in asthma treatment to assessments relevant to the subjective experience of asthma.
Reveals how self-care programs can serve to improve patient health while lowering medical costs by reducing the need for services, such as hospitalization and emergency facilities!
Featuring a unique multidisciplinary approach by experts in clinical pulmonary medicine and the behavioral sciences, Self-Management of Asthma

  • elucidates the impact of asthma on the individual, family, and society
  • discusses psychological correlates of asthma severity
  • provides a basic understanding of the measurement of quality of life in asthma
  • reviews methods of pulmonary home monitoring
  • examines the perception of resistance to breathing and its modification
  • furnishes guidelines for the selection and implementation of effective pediatric, adult, and personalized self-management programs
  • details potential solutions for overcoming lack of compliance to treatment recommendations
  • and more!
    Complemented with references, tables, equations, and drawings, Self-Management of Asthma is essential reading for allergists, immunologists, pulmonologists, respiratory physiologists, psychophysiologists, health and clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, public health specialists, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher Winslow, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book is part of the Lung Biology in Health and Disease series and is the seventh volume in this collection about asthma. While previous volumes have been devoted to educating the reader about some aspect of asthma, the disease, this book addresses the behavioral aspects of individuals with asthma.
Purpose: The purpose is to explore the evidence that demonstrates that asthma not only affects — but is affected by — psychology. As a clinician who believes in guided self-management for patients with asthma, my prior readings have focused on the medical, and not behavioral, aspects. I am familiar with the literature describing the how-tos of patient education, but I am much less familiar with the literature exploring the impact of asthma on the individual and vice versa. This book has raised my consciousness regarding these issues — a clear objective of the editors.
Audience: It will find an audience among both clinicians and researchers. Clinicians interested in self-management who read this book will become better advisors for their patients. Researchers interested in improving patient compliance, adherence, and self-management will find this book a helpful resource.
Features: This volume is a compilation of behavioral elements that play a role in the control of asthma, and is written in three parts. The first part discusses conceptual developments of the psychology of asthma, exploring the personality correlates and emotional precipitants of asthma, and the psychological correlates of asthma severity and treatment outcome in children — a topic I found most interesting. The second part focuses on the means of assessing the subjective experience of asthma with topics ranging from the more familiar quality of life measures to the less familiar sensory psychophysics. The last part is devoted to adult and pediatric self-management, individualizing self-management and adherence.
Assessment: This is an important addition to the other publications about asthma in this series as it offers a perspective on asthma management that clinicians may not otherwise hear.

Respiratory Care
The editors have gone to great lengths to provide a well-balanced view of the topic.... "...recommend[ed] to anyone who is interested in learning why patients do not comply with the directions we give them. but most importantly, this book outlines strategies for health professionals to help patients manage their own asthma.
Booknews
Deals with behavioral elements that play a role in the control of asthma, covering traditional asthma self-management technique such as avoidance of asthma triggers and recognition of asthma symptoms, as well as research relating to asthma self-management in fields such as cognitive/behavioral theory, measurement considerations, and the role of personality and emotion in asthma self-management. Discusses topics that are at the forefront of research on asthma self- management, including psychophysics, the scaling of respiratory sensations, and training patients in perception of respiratory events. For clinicians and researchers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
