World Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Day

The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the major cause of quality loss of life and mortality in Portugal. In the Portal do Utente you can get more information about its causes, symptoms and treatment of COPD.
Since 2014, Hope Care is involved in a pilot project of telemonitoring with Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de Coimbra, in order to monitor 15 patients with COPD in their homes. Medical devices were placed, that provide several parameters, such as pulse oximetry, and subsequently analyzed by a team of nurses.
If required the follow up is given by the pulmonology staff of the hospital to thereby reduce the aggravation of the clinical situation and therefore new admissions.
