Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Asthma complicates pregnancy with the same frequency as cardiac disease (1%) does. Although the incidence of severe asthma during pregnancy is low, its effect on the mother and fetus can be disastrous. Recent advances have improved the management of this problem. Representative cases and a review of asthma treatment in pregnancy are presented.
