Services and Treatments
Asthma Center patients receive coordinated consultation from both allergy and pulmonary specialists. This team-centered approach allows for comprehensive assessment of symptoms and possible medications.
We test for asthma using:
- Advanced testing, including cardiopulmonary exercise testing to check for exercise-induced asthma.
- Inhalation challenge testing for diagnostic evaluation of complex asthma.
- Sophisticated allergy/immunology testing, including full-panel skin testing and tests for a variety of inhaled and/or food allergens.
- Fiberoptic examination for direct exam of upper and lower airway problems.
