The Allergy Clinic offers our patients comprehensive asthma education and asthma management clinics under the guidance of Dr.Harry Beauchamp (Adults) and Prof.Basil Elnazir (Children).
Our goal is to ensure that our asthma patients understand and manage their asthma to live a healthy and allergy controlled life.
Asthma is a condition that affects the small tubes that carry air in and out of our lungs, otherwise know as our Airways.
When the airways react to a substance, like, cold air or dust, the muscles of the tube walls tighten up, making them narrow and leaving little room for air to flow in and out.
The lining of the airways then become swollen and sticky mucus is produced. This mucus clogs up the breathing passages which makes it difficult to breath.
With so little space in the airways, it becomes difficult for air to move in and out and the chest has to work much harder to breathe. Tightening of the muscles around the airways can happen quickly; this is the most common cause of mild asthma symptoms.
The most precious thing we offer all of our patients is time!
Time to discuss your worries and concerns.
Time for you to listen and to be listened to!
Time for you to learn and understand your symptoms, triggers and devices.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Allergy Clinic and supporting you through your goal to lead a healthy, allergy controlled life.
