NG80 Asthma: diagnosis, monitoring and chronic asthma management
This NICE guideline was updated in February 2020 and covers the diagnosis, monitoring and management of asthma in adults, young people and children. Aiming to improve the accuracy of diagnosis, it also advises on how to help people control asthma and reduce the risk of asthma attacks. It makes 13 recommendations covering assessment, diagnosis in young children, testing, treatment, adherence and self-management, as well as monitoring asthma control and decreasing treatment. It does not cover managing severe asthma or acute asthma attacks.
