Asthma specialist nurse services

It is important for sufferers of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease to have their illnesses diagnosed correctly. Correct and prompt treatment can help relieve the symptoms and strengthen the lungs.
 
Asthma nurses specialise in treating respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Asthma is a chronic lung disease which typically causes symptoms such as coughing, increased mucus levels, shortness of breath and wheezing. The symptoms are changeable and may appear periodically as asthma attacks.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is often caused by smoking, and the disease develops slowly. Symptoms include shortness of breath (especially in connection with physical activity), coughing, increased mucus and wheezing.
 
According to our treatment plan, respiratory diseases are treated jointly by a physician and an asthma nurse. An occupational physician or a private physician can refer you to the asthma specialist nurse. You can also make an appointment with the asthma nurse without a referral whenever you need guidance and advice on how to handle your respiratory disease. Prescriptions and prescription renewals are only available from physicians.
 
The asthma specialist nurse will give you individual guidance and advice on self-help and medication. For instance, he or she can advise you on dietary choices, using your inhaler, vaccinations for risk groups, PEF testing and lifestyle choices which may improve your well-being. If you wish, we can also help you give up smoking.
 
While you are visiting us, you can also make appointments for subsequent check-ups.
