Asthma Services at NYM
Asthma, a chronic disease of the lungs, occurs when inflammation of the bronchial tubes (the airways to the lungs) causes excess mucus production and a narrowing of the tubes. Symptoms can be mild or severe—ranging from minor wheezing and coughing to extreme difficulty breathing.
Specialists affiliated with the Institute for Asthma and Other Lung Diseases at New York Methodist are experts on the latest and most advanced asthma treatments, some of which are very effective. NYM also offers a wealth of educational resources for managing asthma in adults and children.
