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) by Dr. Irwin Buchwald and Lowell General Hospital's Respiratory Department.

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, also known as spirometry, and an oxygen saturation, which measures the amount of oxygen your blood is carrying. Space usage and technique education will also be offered.

Wednesday, April 6th, 2015 from 6:00-8:00pm in Clark Auditorium at Lowell General Hospital's Main Campus

Public Fee: FREE
