Wheezing disorders in infants and young children are among the most common and most challenging problems facing the pediatrician. Wheezing disorders in preschool children occupy a large part of the pediatrician's time and constitute a considerable burden on the delivery of health care. In this book, two renowned experts familiarize clinicians with this often perplexing clinical problem. Focusing on practical issues, the authors expose the lack of existing data on the etiology and pathophysiology of the disease process, outline the optimal approach to diagnosis and management, and discuss early wheezing as a predictor of the development of chronic respiratory symptoms in later life.
