Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

When you have COPD, you have a cough that won’t go away and often cough up mucus. You are also often short of breath, especially when you exercise. One of the primary causes of COPD is years of smoking. COPD causes constriction, inflammation, and weakening of your airways. While the damage from smoking to your lungs is not reversible, symptoms can be effectively treated with the use of proper breathing medications.

How do I get involved in a COPD study?
If you have already have been diagnosed with COPD, you can come to our office for a pre-screening visit where we will ask you general medical history questions and request your medical records with your permission. After this information is obtained, we will have a much clearer picture as to which studies you may qualify for.

If you have not been diagnosed with COPD, we will perform a free computerized breathing test at the office. A pulmonologist will review the results with you and evaluate your for COPD.

Asthma

Imagine trying to breathe through a paper straw in your mouth while your nose is pinched closed! That’s how millions with asthma describe breathing when they have symptoms of an asthma attack. Now think about living daily, breathing though a paper straw. Can you see how difficult it might be to stay active & alert, engage in exercise, and be productive at work or school? That’s why getting an accurate asthma diagnosis and use the prescribed asthma treatments are priorities for living well with this common lung condition. Self-managing asthma by avoiding asthma triggers or causes of asthma and using the proper asthma medications allows the vast majority of those with asthma to live active lives without asthma symptoms of coughing, wheezing, or chest tightness.
