Description
About the Book

This book was written for those who suffer from temporary cough, expectoration or shortness of breath and for those who suffer from chronic asthma due to allergies or other factors.

Since the bronchi of asthmatic patients are hypersensitive, cold air, dust, animal hair, pollen or physical exertion are sufficient to provoke an asthma attack.

Asthmatic patients often live in fear of the next attack and worry about their ability to manage the everyday problems associated with asthma.

Daily experience in his general practice has convinced Dr. Dietrich Nolte, Chief Resident of a special clinic for respiratory diseases, that asthmatic patients must be well informed about their disease. This book is the first to offer the asthmatic patient specialised medical advice, and to explain the causes and specialised treatment methods. A patient can follow the advice of a physician only if he is well informed. If the asthmatic patient knows which factors play a decisive role in his asthma, then he can learn to control these factors and lead a better life, despite his chronic asthma.

About the Author

Dietrich Nolte, M.D., Professor of Medicine, was born in Essen in 1937 and studied medicine in Munster, Vienna and Munich. Between 1963 and 1965 he specialised in pathology and physiology. In the period from 1966 to 1973, he became a specialist in internal medicine and later, also in lung diseases and allergies. He received his Ph.D. in 1970 and title of Professor in 1971 in Giessen, where he then served as Chief Resident at the University Medical Clinic until 1974.

Since 1974, he has been the Chief Resident of the Department of Internal Medicine in the City Hospital in Bad-Reichenhall which has a special clinic for respiratory diseases. Since 1977 he has been the Research Director at the Bad-Reichenhall Research Institute for Respiratory Diseases. In 1979, he was honoured with a special professorship at the Technical University of Munich.
