March, 2018 News, Updates and Advice: Spring is in the air...and that means so is the POLLEN. In addition to covering our cars in thick layers of yellow, pollen can cause significant breathing problems. Those individuals with asthma should be sure to use their asthma-controlling medications regularly and be certain to have a rescue inhaler handy. At SEC Lung, we are happy to welcome new asthma patients for evaluation and ongoing management. In most cases, a referral from your primary care physician is not necessary, but if it is, we can help you obtain that referral!
The flu season seems to have finally peaked in this part of Alabama, but we are still seeing a few cases. If you develop fever and cough, be sure to contact a medical provider for prompt evaluation. The influenza medications, like Tamiflu, are only effective if started within 72 hours of the first onset of symptoms.
