FREE Oximeter Readings and FREE Take Home Pic Flow Meter – Lung Patients Meet at the Rose Room – Harrison SilverdaleMonday, April 18th, 2011
The oximeter is a wonderful aid to lung patients and Harrison’s BB meeting this month – Wednesday – will offer a spirometry reading to each of us attending. PLUS! Harrison’s gifted respiratory folks will teach us how to use the Pic Flow Meter AND send one home with each of us!
Harrison and the American Lung Association’s Better Breathers look at ALL aspects of lung disease and welcomes all of us – not just the third leading cause of death in the US, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) Many of us have more than one lung disease diagnosis often leading to heart disease.
If you have an oximeter, they’ll be glad to check the calibration – I’m bringing mine.
I’m also bringing a few extra copies of the Harrison spin off the Old Guy made up for me to use for daily health readings to give to my doctor – in case anyone wants one.
Wednesday, April 20 – 1:00pm – 3:00pm
