Did you know that 1 in 13 people have asthma in the United States? According to recent asthma statistics, the number of adults with asthma continues to grow with some estimates reaching 23 million people.

Patients that experience an asthma attack may feel stress or anxiety without the proper treatment or prevention. At AFC Urgent Care West Long Branch, we can help provide medications and treatment options for patients that suffer from asthma.

Thankfully, asthma is highly manageable with a few preventive steps including the following:

  • Regular cleaning to reduce allergens and asthma triggers.
  • Provide hypoallergenic sheets and bedding to reduce other common triggers. Additionally make sure to wash bedding at least once a week with hot water.
  • Make sure you have an inhaler on your person at all times and make sure to refill your prescription accordingly.

Patients that need new asthma medication, inhaler refills, and long-term treatment can visit AFC Urgent Care West Long Branch for their needs! Unlike the emergency room you’ll never have to experience a long wait and you don’t need an appointment. Patients are encouraged to schedule an appointment online or walk-in whenever their schedule is open.
