Despite these discouraging statistics, convincing data indicate that this failure of asthma management is not the result of inadequate therapeutic potential, but instead represents ineffective delivery of medical care. Management of asthma and its major co-morbidities, allergic and nonallergic rhinitis, and atopic dermatitis requires a knowledge of the alternative therapies, natural history, and educational techniques for providing patients and families with the ability to manage these troublesome chronic disorders. Cough without wheeze ‘Pretty Normal’ life is made up of two co-existing views of life: ‘Just normal’ and ‘Normal to me’. Most common is the dyspnea associated with normal exercise limitation, but causes of dyspnea on exertion can include other physiologic abnormalities including exercise-induced vocal cord dysfunction, exercise-induced laryngomalacia, exercise-induced hyperventilation, and exercise-induced supraventricular tachycardia. The expectation, of spontaneous cessation of symptoms, the absence of, fever, and generally normal growth and development, are the apparent reasons for the frequent delays in, Confirmation of the diagnosis of PBB requires a, bronchoscopy with a bronchoalveolar lavage. 0000018640 00000 n Most who are not iden-, tified through newborn screening are identified while, young because of failure to thrive as a result of mal-.

Current experience suggests that "habit cough" best describes this clinical entity and that "suggestion therapy" is the treatment of choice.
