Dr. Stephen Apaliski, MD, an expert in the field of Pediatrics and Allergy and Immunology, has found in his 30 years of experience that for as many individuals who live with asthma, few really have it under control, leading to further health complications and death. In his new book, Beating Asthma: Seven Simple Principles, Dr. Apaliski teaches the important basics of asthma care, empowering readers with the information needed to take full control of their own, or a loved ones asthmatic condition.
When questioned about their asthma, 71% of patients say it is well or completely controlled, says Dr. Apaliski.

When not in control, patients quality of life is greatly reduced, and they are faced with potential emergency room visits, poor sleep, missing school or work, medication overuse, and depression.
