Asthma Clinic

A common analogy compares asthma to an iceberg

When the iceberg is above the water, the asthma patient is symptomatic.  However, an iceberg, like asthma, can be unseen and remain a potential problem.  This reinforces the importance of constant vigilance for the asthma patient.

"Helping You Breathe Easier"

Goal:

To help you understand your role in asthma self-management.

  • What is asthma?
  • Are my allergies related?
  • What can I do to help my symptoms?
  • What are my triggers?
  • How do I use my medications?
  • What can I do when I'm having trouble?

AsthmaWhat to expect at your appointment:

  • You will work with a certified asthma educator to find out what works best for you.
  • Your first appointment will take up to 90 minutes.
  • Your follow up appointments will be 30-60 minutes and will take place every six months.
  • If you are able, a breathing test will be done to see how your asthma is doing.
  • You will learn things that you can do to help your asthma and how to make your medications best work for you.
