Asthma and Emphysema
We have compiled a thorough management plan for asthma and emphysema in which we provide our patients with definitions and classification information on the disease that causes the complications and the treatment options for asthma and emphysema. We perform routine pulmonary function testing to measure lung function and we follow national guidelines on the treatment of these diseases. Our patients are given booklets and pamphlets that clearly define the stages of their disease and give them clear directions for medication. We routinely screen patients who are at-risk in order to measure lung function and determine if medication is necessary.
