Abstract In June 1990 a meeting of Paediatric Respiratory Physicians was held near Adelaide. The guidelines for assessing and treating asthma as prepared by the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand for the management of patients with asthma was considered. Although not explicitly stated, these guidelines were designed for adult asthmatics. There was complete agreement that a companion statement was needed to take into account differences between the management of children and adults. This document fulfils that role. Further recommendations are found in a statement prepared by Australian and New Zealand respiratory paediatricians following a workshop in June 1989. This present statement should be read in association with the previous documents.
