Family Guide to Asthma and Allergies
Little, Brown & Company, 1997 - Health & Fitness - 238 pages
For parents of the approximately 2.7 million American children suffering from asthma, there's nothing more terrifying than the gasping and wheezing that signal an attack. And virtually all childhood asthmatics -- as well as nearly 20 million other children -- suffer from allergies, which can also cause frightening, sometimes fatal reactions.
Now, at last, the American Lung Association gives parents of these children the resource they've been looking for -- a state-of-the-art guide to recognizing, understanding, and controlling these two dangerous and frequently interrelated conditions. From warning signs and triggers to inhalers and other medications, from asthma-or allergy-proofing a home to dealing with an emergency, this comprehensive book covers everything a family needs to know.
