asthma treatment guidelines

New pediatric asthma yardstick has treatment guidance for children of every age

"There is nothing like the Pediatric Asthma Yardstick in the current literature," says allergist Bradley Chipps, MD, ACAAI president and lead author of the paper. "We created the yardstick because there are many options for treating pediatric asthma. It's a roadmap for how to move forward with kids whose asthma is not under control. The yardstick describes controller treatments at different levels of severity for all ages, the choices available for parents for their child and how to step up therapy."

The diagnosis and management of asthma in children differs from that in adults. Differences also exist between the three age groups addressed in the yardstick -- adolescents, 12-18 years old; school-age children, 6-11 years old; infants and young children, 5 years old and under.

"Differences in diagnosis and management of asthma in children reflect differences in development of their respiratory systems, particularly for younger children," says Leonard Bacharier, MD, co-author of the yardstick. "Other factors include challenges related to daily activities and emotional and social concerns, particularly for adolescents. Comorbid conditions and non-adherence with treatment (eg; due to the stigma of having a chronic condition and taking medicine) can affect outcomes for older children."

FMLA question: My asthmatic son is sick...?

I just began a new job and the attendance policy is very, very strict: You cannot miss over 2 days within the first 6 months of employment. On the 3rd day, you will be terminated. Even worse, during the 6-week training, we have been told we have to


As others have noted you are not qualified for FMLA coverage because of the duration of employment requirements. You can take small comfort in the fact that even if you were qualified for FMLA protection, FMLA only provides for unpaid leaves of absence


Under FMLA, your employer cannot punish or fire you. You need to have your doctor sign FMLA forms and turn them in to your employer. You need at least 12 months service for FLMA protection. Forms and regulations are here


sorry but you do not qualify for FMLA, if they have a strict attendance policy than you have no choice but lose your job, it may sound cruel but most companies are in Business to make money, they don't really care much about your personal problems. See
