Breathe Well Clinic

Overview

This clinic is a specialized clinic which deals with asthma in children. Asthma is a disease of the airway. These are the small tubes which carry air in & out of the lungs. Children who have asthma have sensitive airways. When exposed to some triggers (such as cold air, virus or pollen), the sensitive airway reacts. They become red & swollen (inflamed) which causes the airways muscle to go into spasm & there is also production of excessive mucus. This commonly produces wheezing.

Wheezing is very common in the first few years of life. For most children it is temporary & does not mean they have asthma. This is distressing for both the child & for the parents as well.

Wheezing occurs when the small airways of the lungs become narrow or constricted. That creates a whistling sound when breathing out. Studies in babies & children have shown that there are different types of wheezing in young children. These include transient (temporary) & persistent wheezing. The transient wheezing occurs when a child generally has an infection & stops when the child gets better.

Persistent wheezing is generally found in children who have allergic conditions. It may be associated with eczema, hay fever, runny nose with a cold & so on.
