Happy World COPD Day!

World COPD Day is organized by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) in collaboration with health care professionals and COPD patient groups throughout the world. Its aim is to raise awareness, share knowledge, and discuss ways to reduce the burden of COPD worldwide.

The 2020 theme for World COPD Day will be “Living Well with COPD - Everybody, Everywhere". This year's aim is to send a positive message to both patients and providers that although COPD does not have a cure, there are many ways to actively live well.

World Prematurity Day is represented by the colour purple, which stands for sensitivity and exceptionality, and the “socksline” — a clothesline featuring a small pair of purple socks framed by nine full-sized pairs of baby socks — symbolizes the 1 in 10 babies born prematurely worldwide.

Premature babies’ lungs are undeveloped and in some cases can be dependent on prolonged ventilator and oxygen support. Their lungs need time to grow and heal, so they need respiratory support. As they become stronger, they often need help weaning from their ventilator and from oxygen support.

Respiratory Therapists play a vital role when it comes to caring for premature babies. They work together with nurses and doctors to address breathing challenges these patients may have. Big thank you to all the doctors nurses and respiratory therapists for caring for these babies.
