Pediatric Asthma Care

Asthma is a disease that affects the airways and makes it hard to breathe. Life with asthma can be a challenge, especially for children.  Pediatricians at PIH Health can help families learn about asthma and understand how to manage it effectively.

Care for Children’s Asthma

During your visit for your child’s asthma condition, our team of pediatricians and staff will:

  • Monitor your child’s lung function and asthma symptoms
  • Work with you to develop a management plan specifically for your child
  • Review and adjust asthma medications
  • Show you and your child how to use an inhaler
  • Help you learn about asthma attacks—what causes them (triggers) and how to prevent them
  • Provide educational information and resources to use at home

If left untreated, asthma can interfere with your child’s everyday activities and lead to hospitalization. Let us help you learn how to control this lifelong disease and keep your child healthy.
