Quick, Accurate Diagnosis and Treatment of Asthma
When NY Allergy and Asthma patients suffer with asthma, there are many variables that make it difficult to know the severity of each case. An accurate measure of airway inflammation can significantly improve the effectiveness of therapy for asthma. With the Insight eNO System from Apieron, the newest breakthrough in asthma determination and management found at all the offices of Dr. Lubitz, we can now see what other current methods miss. The Insight eNO System – the only non-invasive biomarker on the market – provides an accurate measurement of airway inflammation, and provides results in less than a minute.
eNO (exhaled nitric oxide) has been established as a reliable marker of airway inflammation in asthma for over 10 years. Current methods in use to diagnose, monitor and manage asthma do not measure airway inflammation. Physician office measurement of eNO is a breakthrough in medical technology that provides physicians with a reliable tool to measure airway inflammation as an adjunct to the current diagnostic measures, e.g. lung function.
Is it Allergic Asthma?
Asthma symptoms that are triggered by an allergic reaction is known as Allergic (extrinsic) asthma . Allergic asthma is triggered by inhaled allergens such as dust mite allergen, pet dander, pollen, mold, etc. resulting in asthma symptoms. Because allergens are everywhere, it’s important that people with allergic asthma understand their allergy and asthma triggers to prevent asthma “attacks”.
Airway obstruction and inflammation of allergic asthma is partially reversible with medication. Over 50% of the 20 million asthma sufferers have Allergic Asthma. About 90% of kids with childhood asthma have allergies, compared with about 50% of adults with asthma. The symptoms of allergic and non-allergic asthma are the same;
- shortness of breath or rapid breathing,
- chest tightness
Suffering with troubled breathing? Give us a call – with proper diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan, asthma can be successfully controlled.
