Asthma Education Center Opens
An Asthma Education Center has opened at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. Located in Suite 220A of the Hospital, the Center helps people ages six though adult learn to manage their asthma by creating a written daily self-management plan, an action plan for asthma attacks and to teach proper use of asthma medicines and inhalers. A physician referral is required for an appointment.
Certified asthma educators Connie Metz, RN, AE-C and Gayle Werner, RN, BSN, AE-C staff the clinic and work collaboratively with the patient’s primary care physician. Answering “yes” to any of the following questions might indicate a person’s asthma is not well controlled, and she/he can benefit from the services of the Center:
·Does asthma limit your daily activity?
·Do you use a rescue inhaler more than two times per week?
·Do you have problems with asthma during exercise?
·Do you wake up at night with asthma symptoms more than two times per month?
·Do you refill your quick relief inhaler more than two times per year?
·Have you recently been diagnosed with asthma?
To make an appointment call 847-2480.
