I finished training in Respiratory Therapy at the College of Health Related Professions in 1982. Since then I've worked in intensive care units, rehabilitation facilities, and emergency departments. I've found that my continuing interest is in asthma and how understanding it can greatly enable the asthma sufferer to better manage and control it. Hence this book. If you use half of what I've included in this book, you'll find that your asthma can be well managed and instead of your asthma controlling you, you'll control your asthma.
