Understanding COPD Social Security Disability

COPD, or Cardiac Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a difficult disease for a person to manage. This is compounded by those who suffer from COPD and also need employment. Suffers of the disease often find it difficult to maintain employment as a result of how the disease impacts their body. Cardiac Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a disease that qualifies for disability benefits under the Social Security Administration (SSA). The challenge with this type of disability case is proving to the Social Security Administration that you are disabled, because their definition of disability is very strict. Defining Social Security Disability Benefits: The SSA has a very rigid definition of who is disabled. To receive SSI or SSDI benefits a person must provide evidence that they are permanently disabled and this condition will last at least one year, or result in their death. No benefits are awarded for a partial or short-term disability. Documenting a COPD Disability: The most important thing for a COPD patient to ...

 


Improve Asthma By Reducing Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air quality is growing in importance as more and more people spend time working, playing and living indoors. It is estimated that indoor air pollutants are up to five times higher than outdoor pollution in some areas. The air quality in a home can therefore have a drastic effect on the health of a family. Not only will children or parents with asthma feel the effects of poor air in the home, but family members may start to suffer from allergies because of the particles in the air. It is estimated that an increase in perennial allergic rhinitis, or year-long allergies, can be attributed in part to the increased amount of dust mites and mold that people breathe in every day. Dust mites, pet dander and mold are all major contributors to air pollutants in the home. For the 30 million people who suffer from asthma, any actions taken to reduce pollutant levels in a home or office can greatly improve their quality of life. One of the easiest steps to take in improving indoor air quality is to change the fil...

 


Alternative Emphysema Treatment

Emphysema is a degenerative lung disease that usually develops after many years of exposure to cigarette smoke or other toxins that pollute the air. It is one of a group of lung diseases referred to as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPDs, which also include asthma and chronic bronchitis, can interfere with normal breathing. The dominant symptom of emphysema is shortness of breath and the feeling of not being able to get enough air during any kind of physical exertion. In people with emphysema, damage to the alveoli (small air sacs in the lungs) causes the lungs to lose their elasticity. As a result, exhaling becomes difficult, and stale air remains trapped in the lungs, preventing the needed exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. A person with advanced emphysema may experience a near constant state of breathlessness, chronic coughing and wheezing, and frequent discharge of sputum from the respiratory passages. Emphysema can also contribute to other health problems, such as lung infections and...
