When OTs Wore White Shoes

The Role of OT with COPD: Treating the Whole Patient

Published May 26, 2015 3:48 PM by Debra Karplus

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a nasty disease that occupational therapists often work with in their patients. People don't realize the many symptoms that come with this disease until it robs a loved one of any sort of reasonable quality of life, and ultimately leads to a long slow death. One only has to view the numerous television commercials for products to alleviate COPD symptoms to realize that the disease may be more common than one thinks. Though there is no real cure, health care practitioners work to relieve the many unpleasant symptoms of the disease.

There are numerous reputable web sites that describe the different facets of this fatal disease. COPD affects women more than men. Though people often assume that COPD sufferers are smokers or ex-smokers, statistics show that 75% of smokers never get COPD, and 10 to 20% of people who have never smoked do. Poor air quality - indoors, outdoors, at home or at work -may be a factor for those non-smokers who get COPD. 

There also appears to be a genetic component to the disease, which has four distinct stages. Early symptoms of COPD include a cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, and fatigue, as well as some psychological factors such as anxiety and depression. And oxygen PRN is usually part of the medical treatment for the disease.

Fatigue and general weakness are typically the symptoms that cause physicians to order an occupational therapy evaluation and treatment as needed in their patients with COPD. The focus of an OT program usually involves exercise for strengthening upper body function. Training in activities of daily living (ADL) includes energy conservation techniques and work simplification specifically in areas of bathing, dressing, meal preparation and other kitchen tasks. Low-tech adaptive equipment such as bedside commode, bath tub bench, and stool for sitting kitchen tasks are routine OT procedures for patients with COPD.

But OTs need to be aware of the equally debilitating psychological problems that are often part of COPD. Anxiety is not at all uncommon in COPD sufferers. Patients may or may not be prescribed medication to reduce these symptoms. Some of the anxiety may be rooted in the fear of not being able to breathe. Depression and feelings of reduced self-worth are also common to those who have COPD. Crying is common. "This is no life", stated one patient tearfully. At 86, she had been very active until recent months during which she was on oxygen 24/7, and was no longer able to drive. A paid caregiver was brought into her home to help her husband with some of the daily tasks.

Occupational therapy practitioners need to be mindful of the psychological aspects on this unpleasant malady and remember to view the whole patient.

What has been your experience as an OT working with COPD?

I was diagnosed of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in summer of 2014, my symptoms started out with shortness of breath and chronic cough. The pulmonary disease specialist prescribed me some medications to help my symptoms however the medications did no good and their side effects were too severe. In May 2016, i started on NewLife Herbal Clinic COPD Herbal formula treatment, i read alot of positive reviews on their success rate with the COPD Herbal formula and i immediately started on the treatment. Just 11 weeks into the Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with my breathing, there is no case of dyspnea and chest tightness since treatment, visit NewLife Herbal Clinic official website www. newlifeherbalclinic. com or email info@ newlifeherbalclinic. com. This treatment is incredible!

Hello, everyone! I,m here to explore blogs and forum about the wonderful and most safe cure for HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV).

I was positive to the deadly virus called HERPES and i lost hope because i was out casted and rejected even by my closet friends.

i searched on-line to know and enquirer about cure for HERPES and i read someone testimony on how he was cured from HSV-2 so i decided to contact the same herbalist Call Dr Edidia because i know that nature has the power to heal everything.

i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God!

after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via UPS SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days!

i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured!

its really like a dream but i am so happy!

thats the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more can be saved just like me!

and if you need his help, you can email him on dredidiaherbalhome@gmail.com or whatsapp +2349074505296

(MUST READ: COPD TREATMENT)

I am Judith Hall from Portland, Oregon, USA. I was diagnosed of COPD/Emphysema in Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in 2014. In August 2016 my condition worsened and my doctor adviced me for Lung volume reduction surgery to remove part of my lungs, making room for the rest of the lung to work better, considering the risk involved i was scared and i resorted online for help, I was in a health website when i read a testimony of a woman from Canada who was totally cured of COPD through the herbal remedy she purchased from a herbal clinic in South Africa, i immediately contacted this herbal clinic via their website and purchased the COPD herbal remedy, i received the herbal remedy within 7 days via courier service and commenced usage. After four weeks and two days of usage, i did another lungs function test and CT scan to be sure, my doctor confirmed my airway are repaired,  Thank you Health herbal clinic. Contact this herbal clinic via their website www   .  healthherbalclinic  .  weebly . com, email: healthherbalclinic @  gmail .  com

Thank you all for reading and commenting.  We lost a family member to COPD.  It is a nasty disease and much more disabling than one might imagine.

Debbie Karplus June 30, 2015 2:56 PM

Thank you for your article but I wondered if we got the full article.  I was looking for more.  Perhaps because I am currently dealing with my husband who has severe COPD, is on oxygen at highest level and needs  help with his care.  I don't try to be his OT.  I guess I was looking to learn more from OT perspective about levels that you indicated in the article.  But I thought I would share a little of what I am learning.  The fatigue gets worse, the level of ability to do things gets worse as see how out of breath he becomes.  The determination to try to do things that make him even more fatigued is consistent.  He does not give up easily but getting hiim to rest is really difficult much of the time.  He has no CHF but has edema in his legs and feet when does too much or has too much salt.  The salt issue is huge, no salt at all, if can help it.  We avoid pre-prepared foods and cook with only salt free type of seasonings.  I am sure I have more.  I also have questions of how long this can continue, but think it is probably very individual.

Thank you for the  article. I work in homecare and frequently work wit patients with COPD also my father is 86yrs. old and has the disease. He has been reduce to sitting in his chair all day struggling to breath and goes no where. My mom takes care of him 24/7 and goes no where. everything you talk about in tis article I have seen with my father and the patients I treat. Many feel their life is useless. We do need to view the whole person. thank you again for this article.                                              P.S. can you recommend some exercises and where I can get handouts?
