The Respiratory Clinic at the University of Kent focuses on testing and assessment for exercise-related breathing problems including Exercise Induced Asthma (EIA). Testing can also reveal unknown underlying respiratory issues which may be affecting an athlete’s health or performance.
The Respiratory Clinic offers the 'gold standard' test for EIA. Once a diagnosis is made, our highly trained and experienced staff guide clients through well-established treatment paths. Staff work with clients to create a tailor-made plan with the aim of enabling them to exercise and compete without limitations. We welcome individual athletes, regular exercisers and teams to our clinic.
We also offer an EIA screening service, where we take our mobile EVH challenge equipment to a training venue and can screen up to 15 athletes in four hours.
Once you have selected and paid for the service you want, we will contact you to arrange a suitable time and date for you to attend the Respiratory Clinic. We look forward to working with you.
There are four services available from the clinic:
• Option 1: EVH challenge (£280)
This assessment will test for exercise induced asthma. You will receive an analysis of your resting lung function and airway inflammation (FeNO). The involves completing 6 minutes high intensity breathing and more lung function tests afterwards. This is the most sensitive assessment for exercise induced asthma. It is also a helpful assessment to judge the control of an individual’s exercise induced asthma.
• Option 2: Breathing assessment and training (£160)
This assessment will provide an analysis of your breathing pattern at rest and during exercise. It is especially helpful for people who experience their breathing is limiting the intensity they can exercise. Following the assessment an individualised breathing training programme will be provided.
• Option 3: Combination of EVH and breathing training ( £360)
• Option 4: Follow-up breathing training (£120)
This session provides an analysis of the breathing pattern and looks to track improvements from previous sessions. At the follow-up sessions progressions to exercises will be offered to further breathing pattern efficiency during exercise.
