When should parents be told about asthma diagnosis in a child?
Anna Bręborowicz

The diagnosis of severe or chronic disease in children induces high level
anxiety in their parents,occurring alsoin relation with asthma diagnosis.
For this reason and because of difficulties in asthma diagnosis and
variability of clinical manifestation, asthma diagnosis is often delayed.
Parents should be informed when the disease is suspected so that
theybetter understand the diagnostic procedures. Not only the time,
but also the way and extent of knowledge are important. Medical
information should be comprehensive to avoid the situation when
patients look for knowledge about disease, prognosis and treatment
in the less reliable sources. In this paper the principles of asthma diagnosis
are presented, including younger children and the usefulness of
asthma predictive index.
