Spring is here! The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and allergies are flaring up, which may be worsening your asthma.
Not to worry though, because our Burlington asthma doctors are here for you. We understand how debilitating an asthma attack can be and the importance of our patients having the proper treatments readily available. There are multiple factors that can increase a patient’s risk of having an asthma attack including allergens, tobacco abuse, obesity and more.
During an acute asthma attack the muscles surrounding your airways tighten and become inflamed, and you will likely have an increase of thicker mucus secretions in your airway. These factors result in shortness of breath, wheezing, cough and other unbearable symptoms. Our Burlington asthma doctors want to work to prevent these episodes and make sure that in the event an asthma attack does occur, we have prepared you to treat the incident and get back to feeling better sooner.
Get The Treatment You Need!
If you have been diagnosed with asthma, it’s important especially with the seasons changing, to make sure that you are prepared for a possible asthma attack. You want to make sure that you have the proper medications to treat and prevent an asthma attack and make sure that those medications have not expired. Additionally, if you have not already done so, you should make an appointment with our asthma doctors to establish how well your lungs normally function. We will do a routine assessment of your lungs to establish a baseline of your lung function. This assessment will help you and our asthma doctors to know the best treatment route for your situation. Our doctors at Alamance Family Practice do not want an asthma attack to sneak up on you. Make sure you’re prepared and asthma doesn’t catch you by surprise this Spring.
