Fortunately, Dr. Oksana Senyk offers comprehensive care for exercise-triggered asthma. Depending on your needs, we can prescribe oral or inhaled medications to reduce your risk for an asthma attack.

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

If you experience shortness of breath or fatigue when exercising, Dr. Oksana may recommend a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET). During this test, we will evaluate heart rate, blood pressure, and overall pulmonary function. In addition, a CPET will also record breathing patterns and measure oxygen absorption levels. For athletes, the test can provide objective parameters of performance enhancement. This test can help Dr. Oksana diagnose heart failure, circulation disorders, and other concerns in order to determine the best course of treatment.
