For more than 30 years, Independence Plus, Inc. (IPI) has provided the best homecare to medically complex, ventilator-dependent patients. Over the years, many of those patients have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a progressive condition that makes it difficult to breathe. An estimated 30 million individuals in the U.S. are affected by COPD, and over half of them suffer from symptoms and do not know they have the disease. Left untreated or treated inappropriately, COPD will progress, ultimately leaving patients dependent on a tracheostomy tube, and, eventually ventilator. While damage to the lungs from COPD cannot be reversed, there is good news for those who are diagnosed early – COPD is a treatable disease. The key is early screening to diagnose COPD before major loss of lung function occurs.read more
