Asthma

Allergy and Immunology Services at University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center Offer the Latest Asthma Treatments

At UH Geauga Medical Center in Chardon, Ohio, our allergy and immunology specialist works closely with the patient and referring physician to provide the latest asthma treatments available. We offer the expertise of a board-certified specialist, as well as leading-edge diagnostics, management and treatments to help patients of all ages get in control of their asthma triggers and symptoms.

Comprehensive Asthma Testing and Care

We use a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to distinguish asthma from other lung diseases. Before proper asthma treatment is prescribed, our specialist may use the following monitoring tools and asthma tests:

  • Skin testing for common environmental allergens
  • Spirometry (measurement of breath)
  • Blood tests
  • Bronchoprovocation with methacholine
  • Chest X-ray
  • Cold air challenge test
  • Complete pulmonary function tests
  • Esophageal pH monitoring
  • Peak flow monitoring

Once the cause of asthma has been determined, doctors work with the patient to find safe and effective asthma treatments that reduce airway inflammation and debilitating symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
