“Asthma can be a hidden disease, especially for children who can’t quite communicate what they’re feeling…chronic coughs or congestion can be symptomatic of underlying issues,” said Srinagesh Paluvoi, M.D., allergist and owner of Allergy and Asthma Affiliates of Leesburg and Gainesville, Va. “Asthma is manageable, and with the right treatments most people can live symptom free without the concern of sudden asthma attacks,” said Dr. Paluvoi.
Asthma screenings do not include diagnoses, rather a registered nurse will screen individuals using peak flow meters and evaluating input forms.
