Asthma Can Be Handled
Dr. Javier Hiriart
Asthma can be very scary, but it can also be very well managed, affirms Dr. Javier Hiriart, Pediatrician at Family Medicine Center at West Kendall Baptist Hospital.
He considers educating about what the illness is and knowing what triggers it are very important in order to indicate the correct medication.
Using treatments like albuterol or the rescue medication handy, steroids or other correct medication, just in case the symptoms arise, helps to handle the asthma and can offer a patient a better quality of life, the doctor says.
