Bronchial Asthma

by D Behera

This revised edition is a comprehensive review of bronchial asthma and provides practical information for Physicians and Pulmonologists who have to take appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic decisions in patients with bronchial asthma. Bronchial asthma is now considered as a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. This realization that inflammation is the key factor in the pathogenesis of asthma is reflected in the change in asthma therapy with emphasis on inhaled anti-inflammatory drugs. There are many controversies in the management of bronchial asthma especially the role of immunotherapy. Many new drugs are under development and yet there is no cure for asthma. The second edition has 21 chapters including epidemiology, patho­physiology, clinical presentation, complications, management and various guidelines. The whole text is thoroughly revised and updated in all aspects with the references in Vancouver style.
