Asthma Treatment Goals:

 

Our asthma treatment’s main goal is to keep your asthma and allergy symptoms within your control, which means your treatment is successful if:

  • You endure less chronic coughing or breathlessness, typically experienced at night, early morning, or after exercise.
  • You experience normal lung function.
  • Your asthma treatment reduces or wipes out acute asthma attacks that would normally send you to the Emergency Room or hospital.
  • You can exercise without enduring an asthma attack.
  • Your allergy medication reduces or removes all allergy symptoms with minimal or no side effects.
  • You reach your personal therapy goals, and feel satisfied with your medical care.

Asthma is a chronic condition with acute episodes. Early intervention and prevention of allergy symptoms are important principals of asthma treatment. Your pulmonary doctor may periodically reassess your progress to ensure your asthma plan meets your current needs. Our doctors want to work closely with you to set therapy goals to remedy your asthma. 

Set up a time to meet with our doctors to set up asthma treatment or allergy treatment goals.
