Uh, yeah. It's not me-don't get your hopes up!
American Lung Association has an ask the expert "Lung Helpline." You can talk to a Registered Nurse or Registered Respiratory Therapist who has years of experience in the health care field. You can call the number on their website 1-800-LUNGUSA or 1-800-586-4872 and talk to someone. Or you can submit a question online, there is a link on their website to do that.
They can give you information on a variety of things, such as:
- Asthma Education
- Medication counseling
- Medicare/Medicaid/private insurance issues
- Smoking cessation
- Doctor referral
- Intensive care for babies, kids and adults
- Lung cancer
I just get to share the fun every day stuff of what it's like to be a mom with asthma who has 3 kids with asthma. If any of you try out the Lung Helpline, I would be interested to see how it went for you. Let me know!
