Despite the availability of many effective treatments for asthma, patients’ control of the condition is often suboptimal. Now in its third edition, “Fast Facts: Asthma” delivers a clear practical message – improved asthma control can be achieved through efficient commonsense delivery of asthma care.

These include: accurate asthma diagnosis; identification of risk factors and triggers; objective assessment of airway inflammation and severity; practical and convenient measurement of lung function; effective delivery of inhaled medication; the recommended stepwise approach to asthma treatment; recognition and treatment of acute asthma attacks; and, individualized management plans and patient education. The practical applied information presented in this fully updated edition of “Fast Facts: Asthma” is designed to help healthcare professionals in primary care improve treatment, reduce dependence on reliever medication, achieve near-normal lung function and improve quality of life in all patients with asthma.
