Our certified respiratory
educators are ready to take your questions
OUR HEARTS ARE IN IT. One person in five in Canada is affected by lung disease. Millions more are in jeopardy. The Lung Association is here for everyone who breathes. We realize that a diagnosis of lung disease brings endless questions and concerns. We don’t want anyone to deal with that alone. Our Lung Health Info Line, support groups, programs and information can make it easier to cope.
CERTIFIED RESPIRATORY EDUCATORS are standing by. Need a direct line to information on asthma, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis? Whether you’re calling about yourself or someone you care about, we are here to help.
HELP IS THE BEST MEDICINE. Our prescription calls for honest answers and sound advice. Whatever you may be going through right now, you’re not on your own.
A BIG SIGH OF RELIEF. Over half of Canadians with asthma do not have their condition under control. But a good dose of reliable information can make everybody feel better.
ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO CURE for COPD, there are many ways to help you manage it. COPD severity ranges from mild to very severe. What is needed to manage COPD is different from one person to the next.
KISS YOUR BUTT GOODBYE. Lighting up is just about the worst thing you can do to your breathing and your body. Which is why it’s so critical for smokers–with or without symptoms of lung disease–to kick the habit.
YOU HAVE QUESTIONS; we have videos, toolkits, leaflets, worksheets, DVDs and other valuable resources. The Lung Association provides materials free of charge to help people with breathing conditions, their families, and caregivers.
