Our specialist respiratory nurse educators are mobile, delivering consultations from our Napier clinic, in client homes, or other locations in the community.
They will work with you to get an understanding of the current state of your condition while assessing medication and lifestyle factors that may be impacting your condition.
Whānau/family are welcome to attend consultations. This ensures that everyone is educated and is on the same page when it comes to understanding and supporting whoever has the respiratory condition.Find out more
In some cases they may carry out spirometry. This lung-function test helps identify normal and abnormal lung activity and assists with diagnosis, monitor progress and provide information that can lead to better management of respiratory conditions.
To arrange your consultation please contact us and someone will be in touch. Alternatively you can call us on 06 835 0018 or toll free 0800 ASTHMA (278 462)
