Asthma Care

If you have asthma, breathing can be a chore. But living with asthma is easier than ever before, thanks to newer medications and treatment options and a better understanding of what causes asthma.

Helping You Breathe Easier

The pulmonary and respiratory professionals at North Kansas City Hospital can help you find the cause of your asthma symptoms and develop a treatment plan to reduce them. From medication and respiratory therapy to advanced treatments for severe asthma, we’ll help you find the best care for your specific needs.

Treatments for asthma may include:

  • Long-term control drugs, including inhaled steroids and long-acting beta agonist inhalers, used to prevent symptoms
  • Quick-relief (rescue) drugs, such as bronchodilators and oral steroids, that work fast to control asthma symptoms
  • Newer treatments, such as bronchial thermoplasty, for severe, persistent asthma
