Breathing Treatments Q & A

What is COPD?

COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a progressive lung disease caused by inflammation and structural changes in the lung tissue that make it more and more difficult to breathe over time. COPD is a broad term that includes both emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

What is asthma?

Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes the airways to become narrower, making breathing more difficult. It also causes an increase in mucus production, which can cause additional breathing problems.

What is an inhaler?

An inhaler is a small, pocket-sized device that dispenses medicines to the lungs to open airways, reduce inflammation and enable easier breathing. Inhalers may use a liquid medicine or a powder.

What is a nebulizer?

A nebulizer is a device that's used to dispense medication to the lungs. Unlike inhalers that are portable, a nebulizer requires electricity to operate. Some patients find nebulizers easier to use than inhalers. Nebulizers use liquid medicine.

What is CPAP?

CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure, and it's a device that used to help treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is a breathing disorder that occurs during sleep when the throat muscles relax, allowing tissue from the back of the throat to descend into the airway, interfering with a person's ability to breathe. Over the course of a night, a person with apnea can have their breathing disturbed hundreds of times and not even know it. CPAP works by providing a steady, gentle stream of air to help keep the airway open, preventing the soft tissues at the back of your throat from dropping down into the airway.

How do I know if I have a breathing disorder that needs treatment?

The doctors at New Care Clinic can evaluate your condition and determine if you have a medical problem that could benefit from a breathing treatment.
