Asthma Clinic at St James Health Centre
Other Clinics:
All patients prescribed inhalers for Asthma or any other lung condition are required to be seen at least annually for
review, and if necessary treatments altered.

Asthma is a chronic disease in which sufferers have repeated attacks of difficulty in breathing.  This happens when
the muscles in the small tubes in the windpipe contract which makes it difficult for the air to pass through.  
Asthmatics are more sensitive to various atmospheric irritants that can trigger the contractions.  People of all ages
get asthma but 50% of sufferers are under 10.

A diagnosis of asthma is based on the patient’s history of symptoms and a simple test of the lungs function.

You can take control of your asthma by knowing what medication to take and when to take them.  It is important
to avoid things that are triggers and know what to do if your symptoms get worse.

You should review your symptoms and medications with your Doctor or Asthma Nurse at least once a year.  You
should also tell your Doctor how your symptoms affect your lifestyle so that they can help you to identify ways to
overcome these and make your quality of life better.
