This is an account of contemporary asthma diagnosis and management, with a look to the future. It summarizes current UK, US and international guidelines regarding asthma diagnosis and management and outlines a plan for asthma monitoring to optimize control, as well as an account of contemporary anti-asthma therapy. It is stressed that poor compliance, poor inhaler technique and inattention to comorbidities and exacerbating factors are common causes of poor asthma control and that these aspects should be addressed before modifying therapy. There is a final note on future possibilities for asthma care.
