The Second Wind Pulmonary Education classes are designed to help those with lung disease manage difficult breathing, anxiety, cough, and loss of energy. “Why Can’t I Breathe” is taught by a registered nurse who will explain different types of breathing problems, teach breathing retraining exercises and review proper use of medications and oxygen. “Eat Right, Breathe Easy” is taught by a registered dietitian and will include information on healthy food choices to maximize energy and breathing as well as tips on eating healthy when you are short of breath or fatigued. “Learning to Breathe Better” is taught by an occupational therapist who will address anxiety, discuss relaxation exercises, and teach work simplification/energy conservation techniques for activities of daily living to better manage shortness of breath.
Classes are also recommended for families and caregivers. For more information, please call 412.942.2008. There is no charge for the classes.
