Lung Health | Every Breath Counts!

Lung Health - The Importance of Every Breath
Presented by UPMC Carlisle
Wednesday, October 27
Zoom Online | noon-1 p.m.

Our body requires oxygen to function and thrive. When we breath, the air content includes oxygen and other atmospheric gases. Once we inhale, oxygen moves throughout our body and lungs via the bloodstream. Without a healthy set of lungs, quite obviously our very existence is compromised. How does our body handle oxygenation and process this very important part of living? What happens when things go awry with breathing due to multiple causes? Attend this presentation via ZOOM to learn more.
