The Severe/Difficult-to-Treat Asthma Clinic provides highly specialized care for patients with uncontrolled or severe asthma. A wide range of diagnostic tests and therapeutic options are available. They include:

  • Evaluation of asthma phenotype using induced sputum 
  • Anti-IgE therapy 
  • Bronchial thermoplasty, a new treatment for severe uncontrolled asthma 

In addition, we have ongoing research studies on asthma treatment. Interested patients may be able to participate in these studies on their request. 

Asthma Programme

Asthma is an inflammatory airway disease that affects about 5% of the adult population. The asthma service in Singapore General Hospital involves a multi-disciplinary team of respiratory physicians, nurses, pharmacists and physiotherapists. We help asthma patients achieve better understanding of their condition and optimize their asthma control. Patients are also encouraged to play a more active role in the management of their asthma. We are also one of the centres involved in the Ministry of Health’s National Asthma Programme.
