This fourth edition of Gershwin & Albertson's classic Bronchial Asthma: Principles of Diagnosis and Treatment has been broadly updated and expanded to include, from a variety of disciplines, the latest diagnostic techniques, pharmacotherapies, and other developments in the clinical assessment and treatment of asthma. In addition to its comprehensive coverage and eminently readable presentation, this greatly enhanced edition describes the best practical approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of asthma in both adults and children; reviews the effects of pregnancy, exercise, and drug abuse on asthma; discusses the dramatic progress made in understanding asthma pathophysiology; and details the medical, legal, and social aspects of treating the asthma patient. Cutting-edge and highly practical, this fourth edition of Bronchial Asthma: Principles of Diagnosis and Treatment is an indispensable tool for all primary care providers, allergists, and pulmonologists treating patients with asthma today
