Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the term given to a collection of lung diseases that prevent proper breathing. A progressive illness, COPD can be slowed or improved if managed early.
COPD is often used to describe chronic bronchitis and emphysema, two progressive lung diseases that can occur by themselves or together. The most common form of COPD is a combination of the two conditions.
At The Wesley Pharmacy Group we understand the complex nature of lung disease and can help you better manage your medications and optimise the use of your inhaler.
Our free Medscheck service includes a 20-30 minute consultation with one of our pharmacists, who can identify any problems you may be having with your medications. Our friendly staff can also help you purchase and use a range of lung support devices, including nebulisers, flutter valves, flow meters and respiratory trainers. As long-term supporters of the Lung Foundation of Australia, we can also refer you to the best support network for your needs.
