General Notes

Detailed formal protocol with illustrations and extensive bibliography.
The supplemental file, which is not publicly-accessible, provided this information at the beginning: SUGGESTED ADDITIONAL READING In addition to the guidelines developed by the NHLBI and the NAEP, the Joint Council of Allergy and Immunology (a joint organization representing the two major national organizations in allergy and immunology) has developed and released a useful compendium relating to practice parameters in asthma. This 160-page document was published in the November issue of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology primarily to represent a description of the standard of care for asthma for this subspecialty; a very useful 14-page compilation of the summary statements has been included as an appendix to this Grand Rounds protocol. It has been reprinted with permission (Susan Patterson) from Mosby-Year Book, Inc., St. Louis, MO and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. This is a highly distilled and well-referenced guide to important points relating to the diagnosis and management of asthma. Additionally, an updated set of guidelines is under development by the NHLBI and is expected to be released in late November, 1996, and published and distributed in early 1997.
