Common Respiratory Conditions


Asthma is long-term lung condition where the lungs are more sensitive to triggers (such as allergens), causing swelling and narrowing of the airways.

Asthma cannot be cured. However, with good asthma management, people with asthma can lead normal, active lives.

Chronic Obstructive Respiratory Disease (COPD)

COPD is a progressive disease that causes difficulty in breathing. People with COPD develop lots of mucus in the airways, causing shortness of breath and chest tightness.

Inhalers for Asthma and COPD

Many of the medicines for asthma and COPD are in the form of an inhaler device. As many as 90% of people who use an inhaler don't use it correctly., meaning that they don't get maximum benefit from their medication. An inhaler review will ensure that your technique is right for your inhaler.
