NICE asthma guideline: chronic asthma management

Inhaler 300x200

A practical summary of NICE recommendations on managing chronic asthma in children, young people, and adults, including three management algorithms.

The severity of asthma can vary during the year and over time, therefore, the level of treatment needs to be tailored to the individual’s current level of asthma severity. Children with asthma seem to have fewer symptoms over time, and an important part of management is decreasing treatment if asthma is well controlled. 

This Guidelines for Nurses summary includes pharmacological treatment algorithms for the management of chronic asthma in children, young people, and adults.
