Lung Patients Learn to Eat for Easier Breathing – Wednesday!

Harrison is doing a super job of helping us get educated and this month’s meeting is no exception.

See a video and brief glimpse of last month’s meeting on Pulmonary Function Tests with Joyce Belnap, RRT and successful Reduced Lung Surgery COPD patient Clint Halliday, there with daughter Laurie Schley.   Learn how a spirometry test is taken.  Thanks Harrison!   I also have video of other folks there and I’ll show them from time to time.

FREE Oximeter Readings and FREE Take Home Pic Flow Meter – Lung Patients Meet at the Rose Room – Harrison Silverdale

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.
