Cancelled: 2 Week COPD Education Program
Jun 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm| Free
Please join us in a 2 week program for COPD Education. Each week we will cover the below topics to help you manage this condition.
We will discuss how your lungs work with COPD. How the medicines you are taking for your COPD work and proper technique to take them. During class we will help you develop a medication Action Plan to use to help control your COPD.
We will also go over cleaning techniques for your respiratory equipment.
**Please bring your COPD inhalers and any nebulizer medications to the Week 1 class.
We will discuss how to breathe better when performing daily activities and how to minimize your shortness of breath while maximizing your ability to cough up mucus. We will use the Action Plan we created in Week 1 to tackle sudden symptoms.
We will go over examples of questions when meeting with your doctor, to get the most out of your time with your provider. We will also provide tips for discussions with the medical equipment representative. Examples: “Can I have more than 1 cannula or nebulizer?” and “When are you coming back?”.
The program will meet the first 2 Wednesdays of every month, 4pm-5pm in the Roseview Tower 3rd Floor Conference Room.
