Respiratory therapists at CHI St. Alexius Health treat asthma patients on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Asthma is a long-term chronic disease of the lungs that involves three components: inflammation, mucus production, and airway spasm.
Treatment is a continuum of care that varies according to each patient’s condition. It may include prevention, education, medication therapy, outpatient or inpatient procedures, and lifestyle changes.
