Expert Panel Report 3 (EPR3): Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma

The EPR 3 Guidelines on Asthma was developed by an expert panel commissioned by the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) Coordinating Committee (CC), coordinated by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health. Using the 1997 EPR 2 guidelines and the 2004 update of EPR 2 as the framework, the expert panel organized the literature review and final guidelines report around four essential components of asthma care, namely: assessment and monitoring, patient education, control of factors contributing to asthma severity, and pharmacologic treatment. Subtopics were developed for each of these four broad categories.

A change page describes changes made to the document since it was posted on the Web in August 2007.

As part of my assignment for university. I am composing a synopsis/concept map on a case study of the pathophysiology of asthma and how it relates to the signs and symptoms that a patient presents with. Your publication is exactly what I have been searching for and the information it has provided me is great.
