Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD for short, is one of the most commonly diagnosed lung diseases. The two primary forms of COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema. With chronic bronchitis, people develop a cough that remains for an extended period and involves mucus. With emphysema, the lungs are slowly being destroyed over time. With COPD, most patients suffer from a combination of both of these conditions, which makes breathing extremely difficult and painful.
A COPD MEDICAL ID OFFERS DAILY PROTECTION
If you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, you know how serious this chronic illness is. Not only does COPD make it hard to breathe, but people with COPD can also experience an arrhythmia, need to have portable oxygen units with them at all times, develop heart swelling and heart failure, become sick with pneumonia, develop a pneumothorax, experience severe weight loss, and suffer significant osteoporosis. With so many potential complications, the baseline condition of COPD is something that EMTs and emergency room personnel need to know immediately when treating a COPD patient. In addition to being able to administer the right treatments more quickly with this information, knowing that a patient’s difficulty breathing is his or her baseline as opposed to a new symptom will help the patient avoid unnecessary tests and delays in treatment.
If you or someone you love has COPD, wearing medical ID jewelry is imperative. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), any medications, all allergies, and emergency contact numbers.
