This book is designed to be an evidence-based, practical guide to the day-to-day management of respiratory illnesses in childhood. It is not meant to be an exhaustive review, but rather focuses on the most common and important problems, with emphasis on evaluation and treatment. All contributors are experienced clinicians, writing as specifically as possible and giving their own opinions based on their own experiences in practice. The book''s 14 chapters cover topics including the evaluation of chronic or recurrent respiratory symptoms, stridor and noisy breathing, apnea, and asthma. Several chapters are devoted to asthma and related issues, including an overview chapter that provides extensive background on this all-too-common childhood affliction. The material covered in this book will interest Pediatricians, General Practitioners, Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, Allergists, Pediatric Surgeons, Otolaryngologists, and others wanting to learn more about the common and serious pulmonary illnesses in children.
