Norton Children’s Severe Asthma Clinic

The Norton Children’s Severe Asthma Clinic specializes in caring for children with the most difficult-to-treat and severe cases of asthma. Children with severe asthma may have had several trips to the emergency department or been in the intensive care unit even though they are receiving treatment for their asthma.

The Norton Children’s Severe Asthma Clinic is made up of board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians from across the Norton Children’s network of pediatric specialists, who understand the unique challenges asthma presents for a child and family.

Our multidisciplinary approach to asthma care allows your child to be evaluated by several pediatric specialists all in the same visit. These specialists share clinic space, working to provide a comprehensive, thoughtful evaluation and treatment plan to address your child’s severe asthma.

Severe Asthma Treatment

The goal of Norton Children’s Severe Asthma Clinic is to help children with severe asthma to get to and maintain near-normal lung function. We follow the American Thoracic Society’s National Asthma Guidelines to give children and families the therapies and tools they need to control asthma. We offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art and effective therapeutic strategies, including drug therapies with the fewest adverse effects, to help children and families:

  • Maintain healthy breathing
  • Identify asthma triggers that children may be unable to avoid
  • Optimize allergy care
  • Prevent chronic symptoms and asthma attacks
  • Limit trips to the emergency room
  • Recognize symptoms of unstable or uncontrolled asthma through asthma education and an asthma action plan
  • Live as worry-free as possible, including maintaining normal physical activities

Our multidisciplinary team also evaluates for any additional health issues that could be causing asthma complications.
