An invaluable reference to understanding the diagnosis, treatment and management of childhood asthma, from infancy through to adolescence.The latest research indicates that asthma affects one in seven children and adolescents. Many of us will become involved in some way in asthma management, whether in our immediate or extended family, among our children's friends, or at work. Being aware of the underlying causes, associated conditions, potential trigger factors as well as recommendations for appropriate management and treatment, will enable us to understand and treat a child's asthma.When Your Child Has Asthmaexamines the management and treatment of asthma and its impact in each age group, from infancy (the first twelve months), the preschool years (two to five), the primary school years (five to twelve) to adolescence (twelve years onwards). The book contains clear, easytoread explanations of the causes and symptoms of asthma, how it is diagnosed, how it is treated, and how best to manage it at home and school. Its recommendations for appropriate asthma management are in line with those of the National Asthma Council, making it an indispensable resource for families of children with asthma, child carers, health workers and teachers.
