New Asthma Test is a Breath of Fresh Air

Administrator · 03/23/2016 ·


We are pleased to announce the arrival of a new, simple, and effective breathing test for asthma.

The Niox Vero directly measures lung inflammation, also known as allergic airway inflammation. This inflammation is the cause of asthma symptoms – and the cause of lung and airway damage in those who have asthma.

How does the test work?

Asthma patients exhale more nitric oxide (NO) than normal. This enables Vero to work accurately – and conveniently. The test has been designed to measure the concentration of fractional exhaled NO (FeNO) in a patient’s breath. By comparing the patient’s FeNO level with their baseline level, Vero helps your doctor quickly and easily determine the amount of allergic airway inflammation present.



“We are happy to have this new tool – it is painless and completely noninvasive, unlike many other lung inflammation tests,” Dr. Levin stated. “Vero will allow us to customize treatment to deliver the lowest effective dose of medicine possible,” he added.

Call Chattanooga Allergy Clinic at 423-899-0431 now to schedule an appointment at any of our 8 offices.

Asthma & Flu Don’t Mix: 3 Ways to Stay Safe

Administrator · 03/22/2016 ·

The flu has become so common that we all know someone who has been affected. Seniors and small children are typically categorized as a high risk for developing flu-related complications. But those with Asthma are also considered high risk.

If you have asthma and catch the flu, the virus can affect your lungs, triggering asthma symptoms.

"Flu season has lasted longer than expected this year," states Dr. Levin. "People with asthma have a higher risk for a serious flare-up, which could lead to emergency attention or even hospitalization," he added.

Here's how to protect yourself and lessen the risk of catching the flu.


1. Get a Flu Shot.

If you haven't yet, call your local health clinic and get vaccinated. To ensure greater protection, advise your entire household to get the flu shot. Unfortunately, FluMist, the nasal flu vaccine, is not indicated in asthma due to risk of triggering asthma symptoms.


2. Practice Good Hygiene.

Taking preventative measures can help to stop the spread of the flu. Wash your hands, don't share eating utensils or cups, and keep your hands away from your face when you're in public areas.


3. Create an Action Plan.

In case you get sick, ask your doctor to help you make an action plan. Follow this plan for daily treatment to control asthma long-term and to handle worsening symptoms. If your child has asthma, make sure that his or her action plan is on file at school or at the daycare center.

Remember, your doctor is here to care for you. If you notice flu symptoms, call us right away. Your asthma may worsen and you will benefit from attentive treatment.
