Healthy Lungs Healthy Body

Fri. 3/02 11a: The lungs are an important part of our circulatory system. They help to transport the air we breathe into our vital organs.

 As precious as they may be, they are susceptible to many illnesses and can challenge lungs to stop working properly. Respiratory Syncytial Virus, or RSV, is one such illness that could lead to bronchitis and pneumonia and targets the very young and the elderly.

What do you need to know when your loved ones show signs of a respiratory illness? Just how can you prevent an unnecessary trip to the doctor?

Invited guests include Dr. Charles Ty Reidhead (Three Affiliated Tribes of North Dakota) Chief Medical Officer, Phoenix Area of the Indian Health Service and Dr. Camlesh Nirmul, Chief of Pediatrics at Phoenix Indian Medical Center.
