MANAGING
ASTHMA & COPD

If you think that you may have asthma, please get in touch. If it is diagnosed, we will devise a plan so that the condition can be managed and monitored - with the aim of eliminating symptoms.

Our asthma management clinics help patients with the diagnosis and treatment of asthma. For patients on our call and recall system, the monitoring of asthma and COPD is carried-out by our doctors and nurses.

Asthma Management

  • Asthma patients on regular medication should attend for a review at least annually or more frequently if their condition dictates.
  • Regular clinic attendance allows monitoring and support so that the risk of emergency admission to hospital is minimised.
  • When asthma symptoms are well controlled there is aminimum impact of the condition on everyday life,
  • We strongly recommend annual flu jabs and immunisation against pneumococcus (a type of pneumonia).

Spirometry

Spirometry is a simple test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions by measuring how much air you can breath out in one forced breath. It's carried out using a device called a spirometer, which is a small machine attached by cable to a mouthpiece.

Spirometry may be carried out by a doctor or nurse at the surgery or during a visit to the hospital
