Helpful to understanding your child's asthma

This book was very helpful in my understanding of childhood asthma. I know this is an increasing problem in the last few years, and this is a great resource.  I especially liked the section on asthma myths - so many of those have been spread around causing misinformation and misunderstanding. I would highly recommend this to parents of children with asthma, and for healthcare professionals that care for these children. Bravo!

Great resource to help with your child's asthma

As a parent of a child with asthma, it can be very confusing to understand all the different medications my child takes, and the different tests that she has had. This book helps to make all that clear. I would strongly recommend it for any parents of children with asthma. I feel that I can trust the information from this reputable source.
