520 |a Bronchial Asthma: A Guide for Practical Understanding and Treatment, Sixth Edition,  is a fully updated version of a widely respected classic on the diagnosis and management of asthma. Discussing the disorder in all relevant patient groups, including a variety of patient subpopulations, this invaluable title continues to emphasize the definition, medications, and practical use of asthma treatment plans.  As in previous editions, the book also continues to define and focus on the special clinical problems of the pregnant patient, the patient undergoing emergency treatment, as well as the common day issues of exercise, athletics, recreational drug use and especially self care.  Importantly, this comprehensive reference also discusses the common side effects found in the full range of medications used for asthma treatment.  Replete with a wide range of tables and charts to again make the book practical and user-friendly, Bronchial Asthma: A Guide for Practical Understanding and Treatment, Sixth Edition, continues its position as a leading text in the field.
