Sports medicine: asthma

Practising sport can trigger the onset of bronchial asthmatic episodes in children who are susceptible. Asthma is an inflammatory disease that leads to bronchial obstruction and makes breathing difficult.

Children who suffer asthmatic episodes and want to practise sport require an evaluation of their medical condition in order to receive the best treatment and advice on choosing a sport that best suits their physical condition.

We can provide:

  • Initial medical consultation.
  • Physical examination.
  • Spirometry including bronchodilator testing.
  • Stress test.
  • Follow-up visit after three months.
