This article is from the Asthma FAQ, by Patricia Wrean and Marie Goldenberg email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
Please see the alt.support.asthma Reading/Resource List. It
is maintained by Lynn Short <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and is
posted periodically to alt.support.asthma, alt.med.allergy,
sci.med, and misc.kids. I highly recommend it!
I also strongly recommend the following guidelines: the
"Global Initiative for Asthma", the "NHLBI Executive Summary:
Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma", and
the "Executive Summary: Management of Asthma during Pregnancy"
(full citations in References section). They may be ordered
in the U.S. by calling (301) 251-1222 and asking for publication
numbers 95-3659, 94-3042A, and 93-3279A, respectively. When I
ordered them, and asked that they be sent to a US address, there
was no charge.
Another set of guidelines which has been recommended to me but
which I haven't seen myself yet is "NAEPP. Nurses: Partners
in Asthma Care", publication number 95-3308, which I assume is
also available at the number given above.
The newsgroup misc.kids also has an allergy and asthma FAQ,
which is available either by following the instructions
posted on misc.kids.info, or by accessing the World Wide Web,
In addition, I maintain an Asthma and Allergy WWW Resources Page,
<URL: http://www.cco.caltech.edu/~wrean/resources.html>, and
two FAQs on allergies. For information on how to access these
allergy FAQs, please see section 3.1.
