We treat children with asthma, allergy or other lung diseases.

We admit patients by a doctor's referral.

Patients suffering from moderately difficult and difficult symptoms of asthma and allergy from different municipalities visit our ward. The referring doctor can also request follow-up visits at Tyks, but organise other visits at the patient's local health centre.

We perform specialised studies, such as

  • spirometry
  • oscillometry (measuring lung function in small children)
  • metacholine challenge test (measuring the contraction frequency of the airways)
  • double blind food challenge test
  • medication challenge test
  • injections and food hyposensitisation (milk, eggs and wheat)
  • Eucapnic Voluntary Hyperventilation (EVH) study that studies stress-induced breathing difficulties when the normal stress test results are negative
  • examination of the ciliary function of the respiratory tract.

We are a part of the Tyks Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
