Milwaukie, OR Asthma Treatment
There is no treatment for asthma, but the goal is to control this disease. For good asthma control, your ENT will offer a solution that:
Prevents chronic and troublesome symptoms
Reduces your need for quick-relief medicines
Helps you maintain good lung function
Lets you maintain your normal activity level and sleep through the night
Prevents asthma attacks that could result in a trip to the emergency room
Prevention and long-term control are key in the treatment of asthma. Treatment typically involves learning to recognize your triggers and taking steps to avoid them, and tracking your breathing to make sure your daily asthma medications are keeping your symptoms under control.
It is important to work with your ENT doctor to create a personal asthma action plan that will describe your daily treatments, such as the medicines you need to take and when to take them. If you or your child has asthma, it is important to seek treatment immediately. While your asthma will not be eliminated, a proper treatment plan will be created to prevent symptoms.
