Asthma Treatment Options at First Care in Naples, FL
For maximum effectiveness, asthma treatment should be fully customized. Some commonly used approaches include anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator inhalers, oral medications, and asthma drugs delivered through a breathing machine or nebulizer. Because asthma is a chronic condition, the goal of treatment is to manage its symptoms, such as shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, chest pressure, tightness, and sore throat. If you experience shortness of breath during minimal activity, or if your inhaler fails to reduce your symptoms, you should seek immediate medical attention from the nearest emergency room. Otherwise, if you need help with milder asthma symptoms, you can turn to the team of experienced medical professionals at First Care in Naples, FL.
