Prepared by residents and fellows with senior faculty advisors at the Washington University School of Medicine, this quick-reference manual outlines current concepts and practice guidelines in the rapidly evolving fields of allergy, asthma, and immunology. It covers both inpatient and outpatient approaches with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington ManualŪ of Medical Therapeutics.

The book contains symptom-oriented and disease-oriented sections and covers both acute and chronic problems, including drug allergy, anaphylaxis, eosinophilia, immunodeficiency, and latex allergy. Appendices include commonly used allergy and asthma drugs, laboratory values for tests in immunology, and a sample schedule for perennial aqueous immunotherapy.

This manual is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.
