Lane, Donald J., Storr, Anthony
Beginning with a vivid account of life as an asthmatic by a sufferer who is also a doctor, this detailed and readable book examines the causes and mechanisms of asthma, and how it manifests itself in children and adults. Covering all aspects of treatment, including self-help and 'complementary' therapies, the authors also offer practical advice to sufferers and their families on how to avoid triggering an attack and how to deal with one when it does occur. The Third Edition of this well established text has been thoroughly updated. Important revisions include a new understanding of the mechanism of asthma and innovations in treatment. These new treatment methods include increased emphasis on preventive therapy, especially steoid aerosols, and the introduction of nebulizers for delivering high doses of bronchodilators as well as other devices making it more convenient to take all forms of inhaled medicine. The concept of prevention by improved delivery of care and self-management is fully discussed. This book will also interest nurses and others who care for asthmatic adults and children.Lane, Donald J. is the author of 'Asthma: The Facts' with ISBN 9780195202779 and ISBN 0195202775.
