Asthma is a common childhood disorder that has global significance. Developing an understanding of the aetiology, effects, diagnosis and management of the disorder enables healthcare practitioners to reduce the physical, psychological and social effects of asthma on children, families and healthcare systems. This article refers to the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network and British Thoracic Society guideline on the management of asthma, and enables the reader to incorporate this guidance into their practice.
