Asthmania Academy is a breath of fresh air for children with asthma and the people who care for them. Asthmania Academy staff work as a team to help kids control their asthma. Patients, family members and physicians are all included in the process as we assess a child's asthma, perform diagnostic studies and provide recommendations based on national asthma management guidelines.
Asthmania Academy is the second program in the nation and the only one in the Southeast to receive ASME certification from the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC).
Our specialized staff includes Certified Asthma Educators (AE-C) and Pediatric Hospitalists who are passionate about improving life for children with asthma.
Few things are scarier than seeing your child gasp for air. Asthmania Academy gives you access to asthma experts who provide education on a variety of topics -- from how to use an inhaler to how to avoid asthma triggers. Family support is also available through Family Connection of South Carolina, which offers monthly workshops and continued education.

Diagnostic Studies and Screenings available through Asthmania Academy
- Asthma Control Questionnaire (depending on age of child).
- Exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) screening.
- This test is usually given to children 5 years and older.
- During the initial assessment, spirometry is used to determine the severity of a child's asthma and determine whether it can be reversed.
- After children start treatment and their symptoms are stable, we use spirometry to document when they've achieved normal or near normal airway function.
- Spirometry is also used during periods of prolonged or progressive loss of asthma control.
- All patients should go through this test at least once every one to two years to make sure they are maintaining full function in their airways.
