I want to invite readers to join a free webinar to be held this afternoon, April 9, 2020 at 3pm. Register: https://my.demio.com/ref/BSKak8B9aPmzKNqt
Kevin Longoria, Clinical Exercise Physiologist and Chief Science Officer at Biostrap, & Dr. Nina Bausek, Geneticist and Chief Scientist at PN Medical will dive into science-based ways to boost your immune system, increase your respiratory strength, and de-stress your mind.
The amount of information flooding your life about COVID-19 is most likely more than you would ever want to know. Yet that information is affecting your life and the choices you make every day. The problem is though, a lot of what you see, hear and read may be either inaccurate, fear-driven or lack evidence.
The goal of the webinar is to clear the fog and lower stress as special guests and experts share some practical ways to strengthen what’s at the highest risk right now: the health of your lungs.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Practical ways to strengthen your immunity and respiratory muscles
- The effect stress has on your immune system
- Effective and proven stress relief methods
- How to maintain a healthy body and mind while in quarantine
- What is pulmonary health and how to improve it
- How data can help you notice early signs of a compromised immune system
Immunity & COVID-19
There is much left to learn about the long-term impact of COVID-19 on the pulmonary health of people who survive this serious illness, though some preliminary data suggest residual lung scarring or persistent shortness of breath may be a problem for some. Swallowing impairment (dysphagia) secondary to intubation may be a transient or prolonged issue, and muscle weakness that occurs quickly in any ICU patient can lead to re-admission to the hospital if not adequately addressed post ICU discharge. Patients discharged home, to rehabiliation settings or long term care settings will all require post illness rehabilitation which may impose another burden on the healthcare system.
We already know that there are certain medical conditions which place people at a higher risk for pulmonary associated disease, and these include people with: oral-pharyngeal dysphagia with aspiration; chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which may include nighttime aspiration; people with COPD or other chronic lung conditions; and people with neuromuscular diseases or very frail elderly who may lack adequate cough strength to clear pulmonary secretions. In these various population groups, we already have evidence that prevention and treatment strategies, which may include respiratory muscle strengthening may improve function and reduce onset or progression of symptoms.
