Diagnostics in Asthma – Making a Correct Diagnosis

Asthma is a multifaceted disease and the diagnosis of Asthma proves often difficult. There is no simple direct test to diagnose asthma and a combination of medical history, airway inflammation and physiology is needed for a correct diagnosis.

In this webinar, Professor Andrew Menzies-Gow gives recommendations on how to increase diagnostic accuracy and addresses the problem of underdiagnosing and overdiagnosing of asthma.

Professor Menzies-Gow also explores different asthma endotypes to path the way for precision medicine to further increase diagnostic accuracy before addressing the concept of ‘treatable traits’, an even more targeted approach in diagnostics.

This webinar will help you in the awareness of diagnosing Asthma, the use of Biomarkers to guide you towards a more personalised approach to diagnosing asthma patients and towards precision medicine which is not a topic limited to secondary care.
