Research Studies

 

 

The Allergy and Asthma Center of Minnesota has recently expanded to offering clinical research trials at our clinics. Our goal is to advance research and comprehension of allergies and asthma while still offering the best practices in clinical care. We have remained committed to our patients and hope that by offering additional opportunities, we can gain additional insight and solutions for individuals within our community and around the world.

Additional Virtual Opportunity:

 

Virtual Asthma Exercise Class:

Studies have shown that exercise can improve asthma. If you have asthma and are not doing much exercise this class will help you get back into the routine of exercising in a controlled environment. It will be virtual and no equipment will be needed. It is free and will be in the evenings once to twice a week for 4 weeks starting late October.  

What: Virtual exercise class for asthmatics.

Where: It's virtual—at your home or anywhere you can connect to the internet.

When: Starting in late October (Exact date will be emailed to you).  Classes will be 20 minutes long and held on Mondays and Wednesdays for 4 weeks. Future groups will be added at a later time.

Why: Exercise has been proven to help asthmatics improve lung function by increasing the elasticity of the airways, decreasing atelectasis and losing weight that causes restrictive breathing.

Cost: FREE! The Allergy and Asthma Center of Minnesota and Fairview Health Network combined to bring this to you for no cost.

What do I need to do: 1: Sign up (email: manageraacmn@gmail.com with subject: Asthma and Exercise) 2: Schedule an in person or virtual visit with Dr. McMahon to assess asthma control and overall health. 3: Have a computer or phone that has video abilities. 4: Be available starting April 20th on Monday and Wednesday for 4 weeks.

essment. Dr. McMahon or one of his assistants will lead the exercise class doing various stretches and cardio exercises for 20 minutes. If there are any questions about the exercises or how you are feeling you can ask them during the class.
