Asthma Screening

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 12 Americans has asthma. That’s roughly 25 million people. If you suspect that you or your child has asthma, it’s important to get screened right away. The staff at Allergy & Asthma Specialists is fully qualified to identify asthma symptoms and make the appropriate management recommendations. 

Human respiratory system with lungs and bronchial tree

We use state-of-the-art computerized lung function testing for all our patients except very young children. Our spirometry test is designed to measure the amount of air you can quickly blow out of your lungs, and involves simply blowing into a special mouthpiece. We also use inhalation challenge tests to determine how your airways respond to common asthma triggers. We recommend screening for anyone who experiences frequent coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, or other common asthma symptoms.   

Board-certified allergists/immunologists comprise the entire physician staff of Allergy & Asthma Specialists. Allergy doctors at our premier medical practice provide comprehensive allergy and asthma diagnostics and state-of-the-art treatment, including two types of immunotherapy. We have offices in center city Philadelphia, Blue Bell, King of Prussia, Jenkintown, Doylestown, Lansdale, Pottstown, and Collegeville, Pennsylvania.
