COPD Book:  An excellent resource for anyone interested in learning to live with and manage COPD is published by Lung Foundation Australia and Queensland Health, 3rd edition of “Better Living with COPD.”  It includes information on medicine, inhalers, preventing and managing flare ups, pulmonary rehabilitation, exercise and physical activity, breathlessness, breathing exercises, airway clearance, home oxygen therapy, eating, swallowing, related conditions, stress, intimacy, travel, and much more!

More Free Resources:  Another free book is Noah Greenspan, DPT, CCS, EMT-B’s Ultimate Pulmonary Wellness.  It covers breathlessness, the respiratory system, breathing techniques, daily activity, positivity, medications, exercise, treadmill, nutrition, emotions, preventing infection, secretion clearance and final thoughts.  Remember there also several links on the Hawaii COPD Coalition website that provide free materials as well.  The COPD Foundation‘s website, particularly the Learn More tab has a wealth of free and useful information for patients, caregivers and providers.

Exercise:  Free exercise videos and information are available here from the British Lung Foundation.  Another option is the Toronto Western Hospital Pulmonary Rehabilitation Home Exercise DVD.

Oxygen:  Great resources for information about supplemental oxygen include the US COPD Coalition website with webinars about portable oxygen, a portable oxygen assessment form, the AARC’s Guide to Portable Oxygen Concentrators, and the online Pulmonary Paper (particularly the POC Comparision Charts on the homepage, where all portable oxygen concentrators are reviewed and displayed in a chart).
