A Message from Kenmore Mercy Hospital

As temperatures in Western New York drop to the single digits this week, physicians at Kenmore Mercy encourage people to stay safe.

People living with lung conditions are at particular risk for feeling the cold more. Michael S. Gough, MD, a pulmonologist at Kenmore Mercy Hospital said, “These cold snaps lead to an increase in wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath that can be frightening and sometimes even dangerous to individuals with respiratory diseases such as COPD or sever asthma.” 

He offers suggestions to these individuals to avoid the worsening of their condition. Such tips are also good practice for otherwise healthy individuals.  

˙   Only go outside if necessary and don’t stay out long

˙   Keep a stock of medications so you don’t have to go out during very cold weather
