Asthma Treatment

Over 25 million people suffer from asthma in America and almost eight million of those sufferers are children. This complex disease makes breathing difficult and causes thousands of emergency visits every year. Fortunately, the symptoms of asthma are both treatable and preventable. With the right asthma treatment plan from Ogden Clinic, adults and children can live a healthy, normal life while managing their asthma.

Symptoms of Asthma

When the airways are inflamed or thickened with mucus, air movement is restricted in the lungs. Sufferers may experience these asthma symptoms daily or intermittently:

  • Coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath
  • Pressure and tightening of the chest
  • Rapid breathing
  • Feelings of anxiety or panic

Allergies are a main contributor of asthma, although people without allergies can still develop asthma at any point in their life. The reason asthma is so complex is because the fundamental causes are unknown. We do know, however, that both environmental and genetic factors contribute to inflammation of the airways.

ENT and respiratory specialists at Ogden Clinic treat hundreds of people suffering from asthma. They develop a personalized asthma treatment plan for each patient that helps prevent asthma triggers and suppresses flare-ups when they arise. Most plans include hand-held bronchodilators and anti-inflammatory medication that loosens mucus and decrease swelling over time. With proper diagnosis and asthma treatment, our Ogden area patients can return to their favorite activities indoors and outside.
