3 week COPD Education Program
Oct 13, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm| Free
Please join us in a 3 week program for COPD Education. Each week we will cover the below topics to help you manage this condition.
Concentrating on improving your breathing and ability to perform daily activities. We will discuss how your lungs work with COPD, demonstrate tips on how to breathe better, how your medications work or how they affect your lungs, and what to do when you get into trouble.
This will be a show and tell. Bring in your medications and devices and we will practice and perfect your techniques. We will teach you to minimize your shortness of breath while maximizing your ability to cough up mucus. We will also discuss how to properly clean your equipment.
We will go over examples of questions when meeting with your doctor, to get the most out of your time. 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 for 3 consecutive Friday evenings, 4pm-6pm in Sierra Classroom 103.
