Case study

Name Mrs H
Age 90
Location Warlingham

Mrs H had been diagnosed with COPD and had a chronic history of hospital admissions and repeat use of antibiotics.

For 18 months, Fairhand visited Mrs H twice a week, and applied our chest treatments of postural drainage and percussion.

Most importantly, we taught Mrs H how to manage her own breathing and sputum management.

As a result and to date, further hospital admissions have been avoided and has been no need for any repeat prescriptions of antibiotics.
