Asthma Treatment at UPMC in South Central Pa.

Asthma is a lung disease that inflames and narrows your airways, causing chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. If you suffer from asthma, you can trust the experts at UPMC Pinnacle to help you treat and manage your condition—so you can breathe easier.

Diagnosis

Our pulmonary and allergy specialists diagnose and treat asthma in people of all ages, from children to adults. We will work with you to evaluate your symptoms and identify your asthma triggers using the latest diagnostic tools, including:

  • Spirometry, to test lung function
  • Allergy testing, to determine asthma triggers
  • Electrocardiogram or chest X-ray, to evaluate lung health
  • Bronchoprovocation, to test airway sensitivity

Treatment

Our experts will create a customized treatment plan using the latest therapies to help you control your asthma. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, our specialists may prescribe medications, including:

Long-term medications to reduce airway inflammation and prevent symptoms from starting
Quick-relief medications to help open airways in the event of an asthma flare-up
