NHLBI Launches Asthma Management Website

Cheryl A. Thompson

Physicians who want to provide the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment methods for their asthma patients can now find, on one online site, virtually all the scientific literature on chronic asthma that has ever been published. The new web site is the Asthma Management Model System (AMMS), launched by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institues of Health in recognition of World Asthma Day.

It is an interactive web-based system that provides users with the ability to quickly formulate research questions and access key databases, retrieve the latest treatment guidelines and published literature, obtain continuing education credits, and browse and download materials. One of the striking features of the AMMS is its ability to bring together several high-tech functions within one integrated system for those clinicians who are on the cutting edge of asthma management.
