Comprehensive Care of Asthma & Allergies
Both indoors and outdoors, asthma and allergies can interfere with the activities you love. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, these autoimmune conditions can make breathing difficult. The experienced lung specialists at Northwest Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine can help. With the latest advances in detection and treatment, you can get back to living your life without having to sit on the sidelines due to breathing difficulty.
Diagnostic testing for asthma includes a variety of pulmonary function tests, such as spirometry, peak flow, and airway reactivity. The doctor might also perform a methacholine challenge (a test in which you inhale a known asthma trigger) to see if it produces an asthma reaction. We also perform blood testing for allergies to determine which allergens your body reacts to.
If you or your loved one suffer from this condition, some of the effective treatments we may recommend include:
- Xolair® injections for allergy-induced asthma
- Injectable steroids
Our providers, respiratory therapists, and highly trained medical assistant take the time to provide detailed education to our patients, including regular follow-ups to see how your treatment is working in your day-to-day life. We go the extra mile to ensure that you can breathe easier.
