Stephen Apaliski MD accomplishes this in his book!

Then there is the problem with sodium benzoate that many asthmatics are allergic to, It is used as a preservative in some asthma medications.

Well written for the layperson and professional alike.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Stephen Apaliski's Beating Asthma: Seven Simple Principles is designed to help you take control of your asthma problems (or, as Apaliski likes to say, take "ownership" of them). He firmly believes that unless you build a strong collaborative relationship with your doctor--preferably a specialist--and do everything you can to control this chronic disease, you'll end up at its mercy rather than in control of it. Part of the problem is that when you have asthma, your lung function can drop before you even notice it. By the time you experience wheezing, coughing, and tightness of breath, you're well beyond the point where you could (potentially) have staved off the acute symptoms. Since asthma can be deadly, this is a real problem. Proper maintenance care can result in far fewer ER visits, not to mention lower overall health care costs and better quality of life.

Dr. Apaliski provides hard-and-fast guidelines (the "rules of two", four questions that include such easy metrics as whether you need your rescue inhaler more than twice a week). Now I know for sure that my asthma has crossed over into the area where it's considered uncontrolled rather than controlled, and that it's time for me to make that appointment and discuss how to get my asthma back under control.

I have a better idea of what medication and treatment options there are. I know that I need to work with my allergist to create an "action plan" so that I know exactly when to get in touch with him, and what to do, should my asthma worsen again. Because I'm aware of these things, I'll know what to ask about while I'm seeing him.

Beating Asthma is a must-read for patients with asthma. As a pediatric allergy/asthma nurse educator, I'm always interested in reviewing materials that will engage patients. Stephen Apaliski MD accomplishes this in his book! It's a great blend of current referenced information and his personal anecdotal observations and insights. He generously shares his passion and wealth of clinical experience to assist patients toward asthma self-management. Dr. Apaliski also writes in a clear, concise, logical style that communicates frankly but with warmth and empathy. He sets an optimistic tone and walks patients/families through the steps needed to partner with their primary care and specialty providers - in order to obtain optimum medical care. By demystifying the complexities of asthma and associated medical management, this book is a powerful tool toward empowering patients toward improved asthma self-care. By learning more about asthma, the reasons for certain daily medications, how to identify early signs of trouble and treat accordingly - patients/families are given invaluable wisdom to assist them in keeping their asthma controlled. Beating Asthma contains life-saving information!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ann V. Deaton on April 3, 2012
Format: Paperback
Back in 1983, I wrote my doctoral dissertation on how the parents of children with pediatric asthma made powerful and effective decisions on behalf of their children's physical and social-emotional health, but did not always follow the medical regimen. I thought of their thoughtful decisions as "adaptive noncompliance", noticing that good decisions led to good medical and quality of life outcomes for their children. And I longed for greater partnership between physicians and patients where the goals would be holistic, taking into account the family's quality of life when managing a chronic condition like asthma. I recently found that wished for partnership captured in Dr. Steve Apaliski's terrific book Beating Asthma, and his seven principles for effective management! I can't wait to hear about the impact the book will have for so many children and their families.

While the information presented herein is accurate, it is by no means a cure. To be more accurate, the title should be, "Holding asthma at bay."
