Breathing Easy: Asthma Management at Hawthorn East Medical Clinic (HEMAC)

At HEMAC, we offer comprehensive asthma examination and management services aimed at providing you with the tools and support necessary to effectively manage your condition. Our practitioners specialise in asthma care, conducting thorough assessments and working closely with you to develop personalised management plans.

During your regular check-ups, our team will collaborate with you to identify potential triggers for your asthma, recognising that triggers can vary significantly from person to person. Once identified, we will prescribe suitable medications tailored to your specific needs and provide guidance on proper inhaler (puffer) usage to ensure maximum effectiveness.

A cornerstone of successful asthma management is the development of a well-constructed ‘Asthma Action Plan.’ This plan is not only devised in consultation with our practitioners but also involves input from you and your family members. According to the National Asthma Council of Australia, having a written asthma action plan is highly effective in managing the condition and has been associated with numerous benefits, including:

  • Reducing absenteeism from work or school
  • Decreasing hospital admissions related to asthma exacerbations
  • Minimising the need for reliever medication
  • Improving lung function over time

By working together to create and implement a tailored asthma action plan, we aim to empower you to take control of your asthma and lead a full, active life with confidence. Experience the difference in asthma management at HEMAC, where our commitment to your well-being is unwavering.
