"Dr. Plaut's contributions to asthma education are clear, concise and accurate. They have set a new standard for excellence."

Albert L. Sheffer, M.D., 1991 Chairman, Expert Panel on
Asthma, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute

Dr. Tom Plaut has been working for more than 25 years to improve the care of children with asthma. He understands that even the best informed asthma doctor cannot achieve excellent results alone. Care of a child’s asthma is a daily task. The child’s parents must do most of this work. To do it, they need to understand the basics of asthma and the medicines and devices used to treat it. In addition, they need a plan for monitoring and treating their child’s asthma. The same rule applies to patients of all ages.

Dr. Plaut writes about the nuts and bolts of asthma. He provides the information that you need to keep your child out of the emergency room and the hospital. His books are based on his personal experience with thousands of asthma patients and his research. They are also informed by consultations with and research findings of other experts. Because his books and diaries are so popular, he is able to update them frequently. Other writers rarely do.

Dr. Plaut writes to fill a need. He wrote his first book to help parents control their child’s asthma. His second book, One Minute Asthma: What You Need to Know is more accurate, current and concise than any other. He wrote Dr. Tom Plaut’s Asthma Guide for People of All Ages because no practical reference existed for patients or professionals.

He has also developed asthma diaries and asthma action plans, a binder, Asthma Charts & Forms, for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of physician’s office staff and a training program for allied health professionals.
