Asthma, guide for physicians, published

From 1980 to 1994, asthma prevalence increased by 75 percent among all race, sex and age groups in the United States. A new book in the ACP Key Diseases Series, "Asthma," has been published by the American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine (ACP-ASIM) for practicing internists, who will care for the majority of adults with this condition.

Co-edited by Raymond G. Slavin, MD, MACP, of St. Louis University School of Medicine, and Robert E. Reisman, MD, MACP, of SUNY Buffalo School of Medicine, "Asthma" aims to be readable, concise, and practical. Its 14 chapters provide essential information on the causes and classifications of asthma and its diagnosis and treatment. The book features illustrative case histories of patients in the office setting.

Sixteen contributing editors to "Asthma" include allergists certified in internal medicine, members of internal medicine departments, and physicians in practice.

Chapter topics include: a general approach to evaluation and management of asthma in adults, differential diagnosis, management of acute asthma in the office, exercise-induced asthma, asthma in the elderly, asthma during pregnancy, gastroesophageal reflux disease and asthma, and occupational asthma.
