What is Asthma?
Asthma is a condition where airways become inflamed, making it difficult to breath. Childhood asthma can be caused by specific environmental triggers such as smoke, dust, and allergies.

Screening for Child Asthma
Our ABQ pediatricians regularly listen to lungs and breathing at child wellness checks. However, if your child is wheezing, frequently coughing, or experiencing rapid breathing, you may want to schedule an asthma screening with a child asthma doctor at High Desert Pediatrics.
Our child asthma pediatricians will take a detailed history of:
- Family medical history
- Frequency of attacks
- Symptoms of asthma attacks
- Child’s allergy history
- Potential environmental triggers
In addition to getting to know your child’s medical history, our doctors get to know your family and your child on a personal level. With personalized care, our child asthma doctors can identify asthma triggers accurately and recommend solutions that are tailored your family’s needs and preferences.
Albuquerque Child Asthma Treatment
Asthma treatments depend on the severity of your child’s condition. From inhalers to nebulizers, our child asthma pediatricians can recommend treatment that will help your child breathe better. We can even teach your kids how to use their inhaler!

Asthma is a chronic condition that can cause a sudden worsening of symptoms.
