How to manage COPD Triggers

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've just been reading again about triggers, mostly we know what these triggers are but I thought I would post the information for any one arriving here who is recently diagnosed or unaware of the triggers.

I will include the link to the full article below (hopefully the link will be approved by the administrator)  

" A COPD flare-up is a period in which new symptoms develop or existing symptoms suddenly become more severe.

It is essential to treat these episodes and work to prevent future flare-ups because they can require hospitalization and cause a person's COPD to progress faster.

In this article, we explore the importance of identifying COPD triggers and discuss ways to avoid them. We also describe the warning signs of a flare-up and general tips for managing COPD.  "

Hope everyone is fairing well and most all have had their annual flu shot to help protect the lungs during the winter months.

Have a great day.
