      What is Asthma?

      Asthma Clinic Redwood City CA

      Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tubes in the lungs, which carry air in and out of the body. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that as of 2021, over 25 million Americans have asthma, which is approximately 1 in 13 people.


      Common symptoms include:

      • Shortness of breath
      • Trouble sleeping due to shortness of breath
      • Coughing
      • Chest tightness or pain
      • Wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe)

      Testing and Evaluation

      At Redwood Pulmonary, our team of pulmonary specialists dedicates their time to conducting comprehensive evaluations, aiming to understand the nature and triggers of each patient's asthma. We collaborate closely with other specialists who may play a crucial role in understanding the pathophysiology of an individual's condition, including allergists, otolaryngologists (ENT), cardiologists, and gastroenterologists.

      To ensure accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans, we often order a range of common tests, such as:

      • Pulmonary Function Tests
      • Labs for common allergens
      • Complete blood count with differential
      • Total IgE level
      • RAST (radioallergosorbent test)
      • Chest X-ray or CT scans
