National 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.
