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.

Virtual Asthma Exercise Class

Studies have shown that exercise can improve asthma.

What: Virtual exercise class for asthmatics.

Where: At your home or anywhere you can connect to the internet.

When: The first group will start April 20th. 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.

How will the class go: Each patient will receive a pulse oximeters to check their oxygen levels during class. The participant will log-in virtually and Dr. McMahon will do a quick assessment. 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.
