Adjunct therapies to treat dyspnea in adult patients with moderate to severe asthma

Eran Sykes, Lisa Morrow, Kathryn Daniels

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Evidence supports that acupressure helps alleviate dyspnea in various pulmonary diseases and the use of acupressure may be particularly beneficial for adults with moderate-to-severe asthma. Primary care providers who have a grounded understanding of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) can more appropriately identify patients who may be candidates for a referral to adjunct therapy for their dyspnea. Knowledge-based collaboration between biomedical providers and non-allopathic providers can also improve the patient's adherence and compliance to asthma medications. This article will focus on the benefits and applications of acupressure in family primary care settings.
