Abstract
The theoretical and practical reasons why alternative approaches must be sought for controlling occupational asthma were reviewed. One modality was delineated that may well be the cornerstone of such change: early recognition and management by the primary care practitioners. The basis for a tertiary prevention strategy were reviewed including limits of primary prevention, current limitations to secondary control strategies, the possibility of tertiary prevention, the approach to recognition and treatment of occupational asthma, developing a high index of suspicion, documenting occupational asthma, identifying the causal agent, and management of suspected occupational asthma. Materials causally linked to asthma in the workplace were listed, including vegetable material, animal material, metals, plastics, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals.
