Join us for the Webinar: Managing your COPD During Winter
22 November 2021
Research finds that as many as 66 million people in the European region may be living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease but very few people have ever heard of this disease.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) is a group of respiratory conditions that include Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema. It affects many patients in different ways depending on their individual triggers and exacerbations. A common trigger among most patients is cold weather.
With November being COPD Awareness Month and the 21st is World COPD Day, join Medicare LifeSense for a free webinar that delves into what people with COPD can do during the winter to care for themselves.
What you can expect to learn from this webinar are the symptoms, causes and triggers of COPD as well as steps you can take to improve living with COPD, especially during the cold, winter months.
This webinar is ideal for those who:
- Have COPD and need advice on self-care during the winter
- For pharmacists that want to help their COPD patients
- For family members, friends and caregivers of people with COPD
- Those who want to learn more about COPD in general
We will be joined by guest speaker Eamonn Brady (MPSI), owner of Whelehans Pharmacies in Mullingar who will give a pharmacist’s insight and invaluable advice on how to cope with COPD and how to care for those with COPD.
The Medicare LifeSense app, which will be discussed by James Reihill, RGN and Clinical Training Specialist at Fleming Medical in this webinar, allows you to get a complete picture of your health with our range of Medicare LifeSense diagnostic products. You can monitor Activity, SpO2 (Blood Oxygen) Levels, Blood Pressure, Sleep and Weight. Measure, Track and Share your results with your caregiver, doctor or friends.
