Respiratory Problems: How Statcare Urgent Care Can Help

by Statcare Urgent Medical Care

Chronic lower respiratory disease, primarily COPD, was the third leading cause of death in the United States in 2014. Though most respiratory problems can be alleviated with daily maintenance and preventive care, flare-ups can still strike. If you need immediate care for a respiratory problem, please give us a call or visit any of our clinics.

Common Respiratory Problems

  • Asthma: It is a chronic disease that inflames the air passages and leads to temporary obstructions of the airways. These obstructions result in symptoms like coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightening of the chest. When these symptoms come on rapidly, they can trigger an asthma attack. 
  • Bronchitis: It is inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes. Acute bronchitis is short-term, usually caused by a cold. Chronic bronchitis is more serious and requires specialized care.
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): This refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. It includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and in some cases asthma.
  • Pneumonia: It is an infection that inflames the air sacs in the lungs and can cause them to fill with fluid. Symptoms include cough, fever, chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue.

Nebulizer treatment: We offer nebulizer treatments to all our patients experiencing respiratory problems. Nebulizers convert liquid medication into a vapor which is easily inhaled directly into the lungs. Many patients report extreme relief after nebulizer treatment.

If you are suffering from a serious asthma attack, you should call 911 or head immediately to an emergency room.

Walk-in to any of our clinics. No appointment is necessary at our clinics and you’ll only wait minutes to be seen. You can call ahead at (855) 9 FOR DOC and let us know you’re on the way or you can check in online.

Most urgent care centers, including Fast Track, offer nebulizer treatments for asthma suffers and patients experiencing other respiratory problems. Nebulizers convert liquid medication into a vapor which is easily inhaled directly into the lungs. Many patients report extreme relief after nebulizer treatment.

Warning signs of a Heart Attack

by Statcare Urgent Medical Care
Don’t wait to get help if you experience any of these heart attack warning signs. Although some heart attacks are sudden and intense, most start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Pay attention to your body — and call 911 if you feel:
  1. Pain or discomfort in chest
  2. Lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting
  3. Jaw, neck or back pain
  4. Discomfort or pain in arm or shoulder
  5. Shortness of breath

Act Fast

Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you're not sure it's a heart attack, have it checked out. Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives — maybe your own. Don't wait - call 911 or your emergency response number.
