As we face COVID-19, Right at Home, Australia’s trusted home care provider and the lung foundation are calling on all Australians to pay more attention to their lung health.
The month of May is Lung Health Awareness Month. The Lung Foundation reminds us that in Australia, from compromised air quality due to bush fire smoke, to the current pandemic of COVID-19, our lung health has never been more important.
The Foundation lists five tips to look after your lungs.
- Make your life a smoke-free zone by quitting smoking and/or reducing your exposure to second-hand smoke.
- Wear appropriate protective equipment if you work in environments that expose you to the inhalation of dust, gas, fumes or chemicals.
- Protect yourself from influenza and pneumonia by having the vaccinations.
- Exercise regularly and have a healthy diet.
- Practice good hand hygiene to minimise the spread of germs.
