Asthma

An Infusion Therapy is Available to Manage Eosinophilic Asthma:

Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swells and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.  Symptoms include shortness of breath, chest tightness or pain, trouble sleeping caused by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing, a whistling or wheezing sound when exhaling (wheezing is a common sign of asthma in children), and coughing or wheezing attacks that are worsened by a respiratory virus, such as a cold or the flu. If your eosinophil count is high and your physician, usually a pulmonologist, is ready to take the next step in your treatment, IV Care Options is available to administer your infusion.

Cinqair®(reslizumab)   

This medication is a prescription medicine used with other asthma medicines for the maintenance treatment of asthma in people aged 18 years of age and older whose asthma is not controlled with the current asthma medicines and who have elevated eosinophil counts.  This infusion lasts about 30 minutes to one hour and you will be monitored for 30 minutes after the infusion is completed.  This will be done every four weeks.  To learn more, you can visit this site.
