Asthma and Airways Disease, Yale Center for

General Information

The Yale Center for Asthma & Airways Disease in the Winchester Chest Clinic provides state-of-the-art evaluation, diagnosis, and management for patients with asthma and those patients who have difficulty in controlling asthma symptoms. Integral to its role as a specialized center of research in asthma, the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine specialists have developed a clinical program that provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatment to a broad spectrum of asthmatics, including: recalcitrant asthma, steroid-dependent asthma, steroid-resistant asthma, environmental and occupational asthma, and exercise-induced asthma.

Particularly appropriate referrals to the clinical asthma program would include patients with difficult-to-control asthma, those who are diagnostic dilemmas, and those who may be significantly affected by co-morbid illnesses such as gastroesophageal reflux, sinusitis, vocal-cord dysfunction, and atopy. Working closely with our colleagues in allergy and immunology, otolaryngology, gastroenterology and occupational and environmental medicine, the program will coordinate an efficient and comprehensive process of evaluation for the complicated asthmatic. In conjunction with occupational and environmental medicine specialists, workplace or home environmental evaluation may be performed.

Physicians in the program develop individualized care plans for all patients, with the goal of forming a working partnership with the referring primary care provider.
