Our goal is to work with patients, families and physicians to improve asthma control. Our specialized staff includes certified asthma educators (AE-C) and specially trained pediatricians who can assess asthma control, perform diagnostic studies and provide recommendations based on nationally-recognized asthma management guidelines.
Asthma doesn't have to control you
Asthmania Academy gives you access to asthma experts who can provide education about:
- The role of inflammation in asthma
- The difference between long-term control and quick-relief medication
- The proper technique for using inhalers, taking medications and measuring peak flow
- Acute symptoms and those associated with poor asthma control
- How to use a written Asthma Action Plan
- How to control/avoid asthma triggers
Asthmania Academy offers support from Family Connection of South Carolina. Family Connection offers monthly workshops to provide encouragement and continuing education. You can also receive:
- Free and confidential support from a parent who has a child with asthma
- Free educational materials
The staff at Asthmania Academy can also screen for exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB). If exercise causes your child to cough, wheeze or feel short of breath, they may be suffering from EIB. The certified asthma educator (AE-C) can recommend treatment options and help determine if further testing is needed.
