Clinical Allergy and Asthma Management in Adolescents and Young Adults
This text addresses the need for a practical handbook on asthma and allergy in adolescents and young adults, which constitutes an interesting and challenging age group. Asthma may diminish in intensity with age but is still an ongoing concern. In addition, compliance with management is not generally successful, with the risk that, the failure to treat it adequately could lead to long-term sequelae (namely, COPD). Finally, 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.
- Covers allergic diseases in general and asthma in detail, and provides 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 in medical and surgical management, especially in resource-limited settings.
- Features insight from international authors with clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma in the specific age group of adolescents and young adults.
