The Patient Experience


In the Best Care Asthma Program the Certified Respiratory Educator will:

  • Do a breathing test, known as pre and post spirometry, to detect swelling and tightness in the airways.

  • Discuss your family history, medical history, smoking history, allergies, symptoms, and triggers (things that bother your breathing).

  • Determine the control of your asthma and how it is affecting your quality of life.

  • Educate you about what asthma is, recognizing your symptoms and how to respond to an asthma flare up, what is good asthma control.

  • Review medications and correct puffer use, smoking cessation (when applicable), regular exercise, breathing techniques, and how to cope with asthma.

  • Together with you and your primary care provider, make appropriate referrals as needed to smoking cessation program, and specialist consults. 

  • Create an Asthma Action Plan so you know what to do if your breathing gets worse.
