What is asthma?
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that can lead to symptoms like wheezing, breathlessness, and coughing. Once diagnosed, asthma becomes a lifelong condition, although its symptoms may vary over time. In some instances, individuals with asthma may experience sudden and severe worsening symptoms known as an “asthma attack.”
Diagnoses & Identifying the Causes of Asthma
Physical Examination: During the physical examination, your physician will carefully listen to your breathing while looking for signs of asthma or allergies. These signs may include wheezing, swollen nasal passages, or allergic skin conditions.
Lung Function Tests: Often, a diagnostic test of lung function is conducted to assess the efficiency of your lungs. This test measures how much air you can inhale and exhale and the speed at which you can do so. If the initial test results are inconclusive, your physician may recommend additional tests for a more precise diagnosis.
