Asthma Treatment Options at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk
To be most effective, asthma treatment must be individualized. Some common remedies include anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator inhalers, oral medications, and asthma drugs delivered via a nebulizer or breathing machine. Because asthma is a chronic condition, the goal of treatment is to prevent and control its recurrent and troublesome symptoms and ultimately allow for a better quality of life. If you experience a mild asthma attack for which emergency intervention is not needed, you can turn to the team of experienced medical professionals at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk. We’re here for you every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and no appointments are necessary.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk, our board-certified, UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians will work closely with you to determine which therapies would be most beneficial for your unique needs. We believe that an effective asthma treatment program should:
- Address symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest, and shortness of breath
- Improve airflow and lung function
- Reduce the need for quick-relief (rescue) medications
- Allow for more comfortable participation in physical activity
- Promote more restful sleep
- Prevent asthma attacks, and thus avoid missed work or school days, emergency room visits, and hospital stays
The severity of your symptoms and other individual factors will determine your initial treatment method. Because asthma symptoms often change over time, treatment is typically a process that involves monitoring on an ongoing basis. As your needs change, your treatment will be adjusted based on how well your initial “asthma action plan” controlled your symptoms and prevented attacks. In addition to providing comprehensive asthma attack treatment to help you breathe easier, we can teach you how to identify and avoid certain substances that trigger your symptoms by irritating the airways of your lungs.
