Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflamed airways that lead to difficulty breathing. At Cermak Immediate Care, serving Chicago, Cicero, and Roseland, we are dedicated to providing effective asthma management and emergency care to help our patients lead active, fulfilling lives despite this challenging condition.

Understanding Asthma Symptoms and Triggers

Asthma manifests through various symptoms that can significantly impact daily activities:

  • Airway Obstruction: Tightening of the muscles around the airways restricts airflow, making breathing difficult.
  • Inflammation: The bronchial tubes become inflamed, further narrowing the airways and complicating breathing.
  • Irritable Airways: Airways become highly sensitive and overreact to environmental triggers, leading to severe asthma attacks.

Common asthma triggers include dust mites, smoke, respiratory infections, strong odors, certain medications, physical activity, weather changes, and strong emotional responses. Identifying and avoiding these triggers are crucial steps in managing asthma effectively.

Treatment Options for Asthma

Asthma treatment aims to control the inflammation, manage symptoms, and prevent asthma attacks. Our approach includes:

  • Inhaled Corticosteroids and Bronchodilators: These medications reduce inflammation and open up the airways, making breathing easier.
  • Nebulizer Treatments: For severe symptoms, nebulizers convert medication into a mist, allowing deep penetration into the lungs to relieve airway obstruction.
  • Steroid Injections: In emergency situations, steroid injections quickly reduce inflammation and are used for rapid relief during an asthma attack.

Managing an Asthma Attack

During an asthma attack, it’s crucial to stay calm and seek immediate medical attention. At Cermak Immediate Care, we assess the severity of the attack, review your current asthma management plan, and provide appropriate treatment to stabilize your condition. Our Urgent Care providers in Chicago, Cicero and Roseland are here to help.
