Help with Asthma Now Close at Hand

6th December 2016

With thanks to the Apollo Bay and District Health Foundation’s 2015 grant, Otway Health has purchased a spirometer. This tool helps diagnose asthma, monitor effectiveness of asthma medication and the progression of COPD.

If you have any concerns regarding asthma or COPD, see you GP for a referral for a spirometer test by Otway Health’s Community Nurse. Previously the closest spirometer test was in Colac, so Otway Health is now very pleased to be able to offer it locally.

For more information, contact the Apollo Bay General Practice on 5237 6844 or Otway Health Community Nurse, Ingrid Rial on 5237 8500.
