Approximately 10% of the population are predisposed to asthma. Competitive athletes who have spent years engaged in high-intensity endurance training also run the risk of developing asthma. We offer asthma tests if a patient is experiencing shortness of breath during physical activity, or to identify a predisposition to asthma at an early age.
This test is conducted in collaboration with the Pneumology Department at the Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPC). Pulmonary functions are measured while resting, after 6 minutes of hyperventilation and after inhaling methacholine. Your doctor will be happy to discuss your results with you, and help you devise an appropriate plan of action.
Sports Medicine Nottwil is the only institution in Switzerland to offer an exercised-induced asthma test.
Price: as per health insurance rates. Costs are usually covered by your medical insurance.
