Lung Awareness Month - COPD

Lung Health Awareness Special Banner_2017

A great video here from the Lung Foundation Australia about an important genre of Lung Disease, COPD.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term for conditions including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and chronic asthma which is irreversible. COPD is a lung disease that affects 14% (or one in seven) Australians aged 40 or over.* COPD is also the second leading cause of avoidable hospital admissions in Australia.*

While there is no cure for COPD, as you will note in the video, there are steps that can be taken to breathe easier and perhaps most importantly, improve quality of life, particularly if it is identified and managed early. This starts by simply, having a CHAT. For more on COPD, please visit this link from the Lung Foundation for a variety of great resources: https://lungfoundation.com.au/patient-support/copd/

Ausclimate Lung Health Awareness Month Special!

Ausclimate-Lung Foundation Chermside Seminar

A few months back we had the opportunity to take part in the Lung Foundation Australia Chermside Patient Seminar, as you can see in this picture with Joanne at the event. It really was just a great experience to be able to talk with many patients struggling with a variety of lung disease and respiratory issues and to provide them with some important options that can assist in the overall Lung Disease relief picture.

We learned a great deal ourselves about just how serious an issue that Lung Disease is to everyday Australians. More than 7 million Australians have a chronic respiratory disease – or more than 1 in 4 of us! The seminar itself was well done and included some useful tips in living well with Lung Disease and how to be proactive with your care. Overall, well delivered, with some very valuable information in managing lung disease in day-to-day living.

As we wrap up a big month for Ausclimate, we have an even bigger November, as Ausclimate are doing our part for the Lung Foundation Australia Lung Health Awareness Month. This month is all about encouraging our fellow Australians to take their lung health seriously and recognise symptoms early in both themselves, and loved ones.

We're doing our part to promote Lung Health Awareness Month with our Ausclimate Lung Health Awareness Special. We'll be officially announcing the details of this month-long special tomorrow and sharing some great information and resources throughout the month to raise awareness.

This unprecedented special on our part is all about spreading the word of this important health issue and getting products that can make a difference in the hands of many people who can use them most!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's announcement and a big thank you to the Lung Foundation Australia.

THUNDERSTORM ASTHMA

by Sensitive Choice

What is thunderstorm asthma?

Thunderstorm asthma is a potent mix of pollen and weather conditions that can trigger severe asthma symptoms in a large number of people over a short period of time.

Thunderstorm asthma may occur when a storm strikes on a hot and windy day during pollen season (early October – late December), when there are high levels of pollen in the air combined with a certain type of weather event.

When a storm front hits, the pollen grains absorb the moisture and burst into tiny particles. The thunderstorm winds blow the particles down to ground level, where they can be inhaled deep inside the lungs and trigger a serious asthma flare up.

Weather conditions like these can also lead to breathing problems being experienced not only by people with asthma but those who have seasonal hay fever. People who wheeze and sneeze with hay fever from pollens during spring are most likely to be affected, even if they have not been diagnosed with asthma before.

November 2016: Victorian Thunderstorm Asthma Event

On the evening of Monday 21 November 2016, Victoria experienced severe thunderstorm activity. The thunderstorm was followed by a thunderstorm asthma event, the likes of which in terms of size and severity was unprecedented. It resulted in thousands of people developing breathing difficulties in a very short period of time and placing increased pressure the ambulance service and hospital emergency rooms.

Who is most at risk of thunderstorm asthma?

Those at increased risk of thunderstorm asthma include people with both asthma and seasonal hay fever, as well as those with past or un-diagnosed asthma. People with seasonal spring hay fever who have never had asthma are also at risk.

Thunderstorm asthma can affect people living in metropolitan, regional or rural areas, even if they don’t have a history of asthma.

What are the symptoms of asthma and hay fever?

People with asthma may experience one or more of the following common symptoms:

  • Wheezing – a high-pitched sound coming from the chest while you are breathing
  • Breathlessness
  • A feeling of tightness in the chest
  • A persistent cough

A person’s asthma symptoms can vary over time – sometimes they will have no symptoms, especially when asthma is well-controlled – and symptoms often vary from person to person.

People with seasonal hay fever may experience one or more of the following common symptoms:

  • Runny nose
  • Itchy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy, watery eyes

Be prepared

The best way to treat thunderstorm asthma is to try and avoid it happening:

  • See your doctor about your hay fever and get a treatment plan sorted out in time for spring
  • If you have asthma or have experienced breathing problems, see your doctor for an asthma and lung health review
  • Take your regular daily asthma preventer medication, if you have been prescribed one
  • Ask your doctor for an up-to-date personal asthma action plan and follow it
  • Know the signs of worsening asthma and the asthma first aid steps
  • Always carry your reliever (e.g. Ventolin or Bricanyl)

What to do if a thunderstorm is forecast during pollen season

  • Always carry your blue reliever puffer with you and check that it is not empty or out-of-date
  • Make sure you take your regular daily asthma preventer and hay fever nasal spray, if you have been prescribed them
  • Close the doors and windows and, unless your air-conditioner has an effective pollen filter, make sure it is off or on recirculation mode
  • Avoid going outside just before and during the thunderstorm
  • Know the signs of worsening asthma and the asthma first aid steps
  • If you start developing any signs of asthma, follow your personal asthma action plan, if you have one, or the asthma first aid steps
  • If your asthma symptoms are rapidly worsening, call 000 and say you are having an asthma attack.
