Riassunto: Parents of children with asthma and adult patients will learn what to do in every asthma situation, how to get the best effect from their asthma medicines, how to track asthma with a diary and when to call for help. Includes special tips on managing asthma at school and while traveling, real-life asthma stories and detailed information on the use of inhalers, peak flow monitoring and home treatment plans. Also contains a resource section, medical bibliography, glossary and index.
Dall'autore: I wrote this book because my patients couldn't find the information they needed to achieve excellent control of their asthma. Their doctors had asked them to come to their office every time they had an asthma problem. I believe that with proper treatment, a well-informed patient will have few asthma episodes and should be able to treat those that do occur at home. To do this, the patient must know how to track his or her symptoms, measure peak flow and know how to respond to changes. My tracking system allows patients to do just that.
The patients I see in consultation have some of the following problems:
They accept and learn to live with asthma symptoms, such as a cough, not realizing that it is a sign their asthma requires more vigorous treatment.
They accommodate to their asthma because they do not understand that it can be controlled. In fact, many patients who see me have been told by their doctors that they do not need a consultation when this obviously is not the case.
Most patients do not use a peak flow meter as a tool to manage their asthma at home. Yet this is the most powerful tool available for guiding treatment.
I believe most parents of children with asthma and most asthma sufferers want to be able to manage their asthma at home. I give them the tools to work with their doctors and manage their asthma at home, so that they can lead normal, active lives.
