Book Description

This text addresses the need for a practical handbook on asthma and allergy in adolescents and young adults. This is an interesting group as asthma may diminish in intensity with age but is still of concern; compliance with management is not generally successful, and if not adequately treated, it might lead to long term sequelae (viz. COPD). Also, obesity and sedentarism in young adults and adolescents can worsen asthma on the one hand while some can be athletes on the other hand. This ready reckoner aims to help in understanding clinical allergy which is imperative for every physician who is caring for patients with asthma given its high prevalence and heterogeneous treatment options.

Key Features
• Covers allergic diseases in general and asthma in detail, providing a comprehensive coverage of clinical features, diagnosis and management, using a case-based approach
• Creates awareness of the fundamentals of clinical allergy, helping physicians make wise choices of medical and surgical management, especially in resource limited settings
• Features insight from international authors with clinical experience in diagnosis and treatment of asthma in the specific age group of adolescents and young adults.
