Sometimes people who suffer from Asthma or COPD with an asthma component will be sensitive to triggers that cause their airways to become restricted, inflamed, and fill with mucous. Some of these common triggers are pollens, animal dander, perfumes, smoke or carbon burned bi-products, dust mites, and plain old cold air. If you know what triggers your asthma, you can incorporate preventive items to minimize your exposure to your known triggers. Make an appointment to discuss your triggers, or potential triggers with one of our Respiratory Therapists. We will give you recommendations on how you can avoid or minimize your exposure to triggers, and improve your quality of life.
