In childhood asthma, the lungs and airways become easily inflamed when exposed to certain triggers. These triggers can include pollen, catching a cold, respiratory infection or physical exertion.

Common signs and symptoms include a wheezing sound when breathing out, shortness of breath, and chest congestion or tightness.

Your child should see their Provider if you suspect they might have asthma. Early treatment will help control symptoms and help to prevent asthma attacks.

Our Providers are well trained in the diagnosis of, treatment and management of asthma. Call and schedule your appointment at (816) 523-0066.
