Did you know:
BFHT has a Registered Respiratory Therapist who can provide education around lung diseases like asthma and COPD as well as conduct breathing tests to help with the diagnosis of lung conditions?
That lung health begins with prevention?
That avoiding breathing toxic things like cigarette smoke, vape products, chemicals like cleaners and varnishes and other strong-smelling things, keeps your lungs strong?
That keeping a strong immune system will help with lung health? This starts with eating well, getting a good night's sleep, getting plenty of exercise and getting vaccinated against the flu and COVID-19.
That effectively washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and regularly, is the single most effective way of reducing the spread of infection?
That our Respiratory Educator can help you if you think you might have a lung problem? Ask your doctor about getting a breathing test, getting help quitting smoking, or other questions you have about respiratory health.
To learn more on this topic, join Tracy, our Respiratory Therapist, for a talk hosted by the Burlington Public Library on Thurs, November 17th from 1pm-2pm.
