Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for complicated cases or controversial decisions? Curbside Consultation in Pediatric Asthma: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick answers to the tricky questions most commonly posed during a “curbside consultation” between pediatricians.

Dr. Aaron Chidekel has designed this unique reference which offers expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with pediatric asthma. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to pediatric asthma with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references allow readers to browse large amounts of information in an expedited fashion.

Some of the questions that are answered:

• What is an asthma action plan and how can one be individualized for my patients?
• What do the parents of my patients need to know about asthma and its management?
• How do I know when a patient with asthma should see a specialist?
