      First author's note: The Board of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) has recognized that areas of our specialty are in need of standardization. One directive of the Practice and Policy Division, taken at the suggestion of the Practice, Diagnostics and Therapeutics Committee and part of the 2003-2005 Strategic Plan, was to formulate Practice Papers. These statements are defined as follows: “Practice Papers of the Academy provide further comment or clarification on appropriate methods of treatment or care. They may be created by committees or work groups, and the end goal is to aid practitioners in making patient decisions. They do not constitute official statements of the Academy but serve to bring attention to key clinical or even controversial issues. They contain a bibliography, but typically not one as extensive as that contained within a Position Statement.”
