Everything You Wanted To Know About Asthma

An estimated 15 million Indians suffer from asthma.The ailment remains mostly a life-long problem that cannot be cured completely. However, the attacks can be prevented or controlled.

For this, one must understand the causes, treatment options, lifestyle changes etc. Doctors are reluctant to use steroids, fearing their side- effects.

Inhalation therapy is also not used optimally. With over 20 years experience in treating asthma, the doctor couple cover all these aspects in their book.

Highlights of the book include:

*Mechanism of asthma--its signs and symptoms

*Risk factors including its possible connection with the, medical history of the patient

*Diagnosis,and the use of peak-flow meter

*Grading the severity of Asthma--its treatment

*Stepwise approach to therapy;the drugs used

*Managing acute cases;asthma in special situations

*Exercise-induced asthma,inhalation therapy,travelling and asthma

Some patients are reluctant to use allopathy. Therefore, information on alternative therapies (homeopathy, ayurveda, naturopathy and yoga) has also been included.

The book will help patients manage mild episodes at home and decide when to visit the doctor. By following instructions, patients can also prevent the onset of acute attacks.

With this book, primary level doctors can diagnose and treat patients easily and also educate them on preventing attacks.
