Asthma Education and Prevention Program Expert Panel Report 2: Guidelines
for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma(Final Version)
This report provides clinicians with recommendations for the
diagnosis and management of asthma. These recommendations are organized
into four components of therapy: measures of assessment and monitoring,
control of factors contributing to asthma severity, pharmacologic therapy,
and education for a partnership in asthma care. The recommendations are
an update of the 1991 "Expert Panel Report: Guidelines for the Diagnosis
and Management of Asthma." The recommendations are based on the available
scientific literature and the consensus of the expert panel.
