Welcome to the irishhealth.com Asthma Clinic, which has been developed in association with the Asthma Society of Ireland.
Asthma is a very common inflammatory lung disease affecting 470,000 people in Ireland. That includes one child in every five. Asthma can be controlled and this involves good education about the condition and an understanding of how asthma treatments work and when to use them.
This clinic offers comprehensive information on asthma, from causes and diagnosis to detailed information on self-management and treatment and all the latest news on developments in asthma care. Among our advanced resources is an online Video Q&A featuring Dr Pat Manning, consultant respiratory physician.
