The respiratory system is comprised of the nose, mouth, sinuses, throat, lungs and windpipe. Illness or infection can cause a multitude of issues in these delicate areas, causing discomfort and pain for the patient. If you or a loved one suffers from any current respiratory issues, please visit us today to get on the right track to healing. At Sherwood Urgent Care and Infusion Center, we use Digital Chest X-Rays (CRX) to take a look at your chest, specifically, your heart, airways, bones, and of course, lungs, to identify the cause or causes of your ailment.
Asthma is a condition in which an individual’s airway becomes inflamed and swollen, making breathing difficult. This condition is entirely treatable with the use of inhalers prescribed by our professional healthcare team.
2// Nebulizer for COPD
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a condition that causes a slow progression of airflow obstruction to the lungs. If you are diagnosed with COPD, a breathing treatment (nebulizer) will often be prescribed to alleviate the symptoms and to prevent further damage to the lungs.
Bronchitis is defined as an inflammation of the bronchial tube lining, which carries air to and from the lungs. To soothe and allow a more comfortable healing period, our urgent care professionals will prescribe medications to alleviate coughing and throat pain.
4// Strep Throat
Strep throat is a bacterial infection that causes inflammation and pain in the throat, along with fever and swollen lymph nodes in the neck. Oral antibiotics are commonly used to treat the infection to help with pain, discomfort and to reduce further complications. Stop in to Sherwood Urgent Care and Infusion Center today if you think you have strep, for compassionate and timely care.
