The Greenville Rotary Club met Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at the Chestnut Village Community Center of the Brethren Retirement Community with 25 members and 4 guests in attendance.
Following lunch at Noon, the club heard an informative program by Carolyn Mobbs and Linda Fridley, a respiratory therapist from Wayne Healthcare. They shared information on the signs and symptoms of COPD. Approximately 30 million Americans have COPD. The major objective once diagnosed is learning proper breathing techniques to curb symptoms as well as determining a preventative action plan that could include medication, breathing treatments, inhalers and oxygen as well as ongoing therapy. The best course of action once diagnosed with COPD is to schedule an appointment with a respiratory therapist or begin pulmonary rehab.
