ABSTRACT
The article discusses the management of asthma in adults in Canada. It states that asthma remains the common chronic disease of young adults which can be initially treated by using low-dose inhaled corticosteroids. It notes that a combination therapy with long-acting ß2-agonists and a single inhaler corticosteroids is the best treatment choice. It suggests that patients with asthma must have a regular check-up with the doctor and proper inhaler technique should be reviewed.
