How do I treat my cold?

A:

The best way to treat your cold is to treat the symptoms it is causing you. Your local drug store will have several options to provide relief for cold symptoms. You can always ask the pharmacist as well what your options are.

Q:

What is the connection between atrial fibrillation and stroke?

A:

Atrial fibrillation is considered a big risk factor for strokes. With atrial fibrillation, a person's chance of stroke is 5 times higher due to the blood pooling that happens in the heart with atrial fibrillation. This pooling allows the blood to potentially form clots which get released in the bloodstream and can cause a stroke.

Q:

What warning signs should I watch for if I have COPD?

A:

If you have COPD, it is important to watch out for certain symptoms that can mean you're having a flare of your disease. Warning signs include increasing cough, shortness of breath, and an increase or change of colour in any mucous you are bringing up. You can be extra watchful if you have a cold or if the weather changes, or there is an increase in the air pollution around you. These conditions may allow a flare to more easily develop and you could start to see the symptoms listed above.
