NOTES: The general direction of the therapy of asthma has been toward the use of anti-inflammatory agents, especially inhaled steroids, which are not associated with systemic side effects to the same degree as oral steroids. The proper technique of inhalation or use of a spacer is very important to the efficacy of these agents. Physicians and pharmacists should ensure that patients are appropriately instructed in the use of these devices.
