Asthma is a problem in the airways that lasts a long time and makes it hard to breathe. It can’t be cured, but it can be controlled. People with asthma can live full, active lives.
Baystate Health’s lung specialists can help you understand and take control of your asthma.
Baystate offers pulmonary care for both adults and children. Our board-certified lung specialists can diagnose, treat, and help you manage asthma. Our collaborative team includes respiratory nurses, rehabilitation specialists, and pulmonologists.
