Asthma Care

Does your child have symptoms of asthma?

Undiagnosed or undertreated asthma can cause long-term lung problems.

  • When your child has a cold, does it often go to their chest or take more than ten days to clear up?
  • Does your child cough or wheeze more than a couple of times a week?
  • Does your child cough in their sleep more than a couple times a month?
  • Does your child cough or wheeze during or after exercise?
  • Is your child missing school frequently because of problems like coughing or wheezing?
  • If you have been told that your child has asthma, is rescue medication such as Xopenex or Albuterol being used more than two times per week for flare-ups of coughing or wheezing?

If you answered ‘yes’ to two or more of the questions above, your child might benefit from having a medical evaluation.


Asthma care appointments

Northpoint Asthma Care appointments focus on diagnosing and managing our patients with asthma.  We will work in partnership with you and your family to provide education regarding asthma and help your child minimize symptoms and maintain regular participation in activities of daily life.

We will develop a diagnosis and treatment plan individualized to your child based on symptoms, history, and test results.  You will receive educational handouts, medication counseling, and a comprehensive medication plan.  During your appointment, we may perform Spirometry (A test measuring lung function) and/or Peak flow – A device that measures how well air moves out of your lungs.

Please bring these items to your appointment

  • All of your child’s medications
  • List of questions you may have
  • Any peak flow meter or logs you may have

Follow-up visits

We will recommend a follow-up schedule to be determined based on your child’s symptoms and response to treatment.  Generally, this will be three times per year but may be more or less depending on the individual.  At these visits, we will review and adjust medications as necessary, review asthma symptoms or flare-ups, review peak flow logs, and repeat any testing to determine medication effectiveness.
