Over 15% of Canadians aged 65 or older are living with COPD
Most Stage-IV COPD patients require more oxygen. But it can also be used if the patient notices greater shortness of breath or if the oxygen level in their blood falls below 90% on a regular pulse oximeter. Right-sided heart failure can be avoided with enough oxygen.
According to the Canadian Lung Association (CLA), carbon monoxide levels are cut in half compared to smokers after quitting smoking for eight hours. Therefore, if you stop smoking, your breathing will significantly improve within 2–7 months.
Ensure a clean and smoke-free environment, help with prescribed medications, encourage regular exercise within their limits, provide a well-balanced diet, and keep regular check-ups with healthcare professionals.
