There are numerous types of asthma. Exposure to allergens causes allergy-induced asthma. Asthma that is triggered by exercise is brought on by extended periods of intense activity. Uncontrolled coughing fits can cause some asthma attacks, while stress or emotional distress can cause others. High levels of stress or exposure to specific chemicals can cause occupational asthma, which frequently manifests itself in the workplace. Doctors can run a battery of tests that track stress levels and other variables in order to identify any types of asthma that may exist.
Asthma specialists at Premium Healthcare treat asthma with both short-term and long-term solutions in order to control breathing patterns and prevent acute attacks from occurring. When an attack is occurring, medications that dilate the bronchial tubes are used to open the airways. Long-term medication must be taken on a daily basis, and a rescue inhaler will be provided to control acute attacks as they occur.
While seeing an allergist is important for identifying and avoiding potential asthma triggers, finding a South Florida Pulmonologist who specializes in lung health and function is even more important. If you choose to see one of our pulmonologists, you can be confident that you will receive a precise diagnosis as well as a solid foundational understanding of how your body is reacting and how to treat your symptoms. Though there is no cure for asthma at the moment, it can be controlled with regular medication and careful management.
