COPD Seminar and Screening

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

COPD is one of the most common lung diseases that can make it difficult to breathe. Join us for a presentation on, and screening for, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

A respiratory therapist will provide an overview of COPD including:

  • Understanding how the lungs work
  • Causes, incidence, and risk factors
  • Two main forms
  • Symptoms
  • Signs and tests
  • Treatment options
  • How to reduce your risk and improve your respiratory health

Following the presentation, you will have the opportunity to participate in a COPD screening to measure your breathing and what you are able to do. The screening will consist of a simple lung function test known as spirometry and an oxygen saturation, which measures the amount of oxygen your blood is carrying.

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 from 6:00-7:30pm in Clark Auditorium at Lowell General Hospital's Main Campus.

Public Fee: FREE
