3 Week COPD Education Program
Jun 5, 2019 @ 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.
We will discuss how your lungs work with COPD, how your medications work, how to properly take them, cleaning equipment, and the Action Plan. Please bring your COPD inhalers and any nebulizer medications to 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 also refer to the Action Plan to tackle sudden symptoms.
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 the first 3 Wednesdays of every month, 4pm-6pm in the Heart and Vascular Health Conference Room.
