Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center provides advanced medical services and treatment options for patients with pulmonary diseases and conditions, including chronic lung diseases, chronic bronchitis, and asthma. With more than 17 million people affected by these diseases, we understand that many people are constantly living with shortness of breath and other breathing complications. From slowing down the effects and progression of a disease to helping you manage your asthma, our respiratory specialists in Pomona are here to walk through every aspect of your health.

Our Specialized Pulmonary Program

We are proud to offer a specialized pulmonary program, which is designed to help increase knowledge, as well as improve the physical health and ability, of those with pulmonary diseases. Our program helps you become a better "self-manager," equipping you with the tools, resources, and information needed to manage your disease on a daily basis.

This helps lead to an improvement in your ability to participate in activities and enjoy regular life. It also helps reduce your general shortness of breath when you are better equipped to manage your disease.

Dedicated Respiratory Care Practitioners for Asthma

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory airway disease. Nearly 15 million individuals in the U.S. are affected by asthma, resulting in hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations every year as well. The Respiratory Care Practitioners (RCP) at PVHMC help you not just understand but manage your asthma in a healthy way. We provide comprehensive asthma education classes, adhering to the latest information provided by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health.

Our RCPs review the following in class:

  • Pulmonary physiology
  • Recognizing the symptoms of asthma
  • Identifying triggers of your asthma
  • Controlling triggers
  • Common asthma medications
  • Peak flow meter and why monitoring is important
