The British Thoracic Society recently updated their May 2008 Asthma Guideline. The changes centre around:

* Introduction of SMART therapy as an option in selected Step 2 patients
* Reinforcement of the importance of standard therapy in pregnancy
* A review of inhaler devices showing no change to previous recommendations
* Changes to the treatment of acute asthma
