What is Sarcoidosis?

Sarcoidosis is a multi-organ system disease with no known cause. It commonly affects the lungs, skin, eye and lymph nodes where the abnormal tissue development is seen in multiple areas.

Cathy Trumbull, an American Traveler Travel Nursing Clinical Coordinator, has formed the East Tennessee Sarcoidosis Support Group (ETSSG) and is involved in a national Sarcoidosis research project spearheaded by Dr. Wonder Drake, at Vanderbilt University, as part of a unified effort to one day beat this incurable disease.

The East Tennessee Sarcoidosis Support Group had their first Sarcoidosis Walk & Talk on May 31st at Campbell Station Park and Trails, in Tennessee. Cathy shared with us these details about the event:

Shellie Hendee, a RRT from Fort Sanders Medical Center, explained what Pulmonary Rehab is and how we would benefit from this medically monitored program. She had great handouts to encourage self monitoring of our respiratory and cardiac status while exercising to ensure we did not over exert ourselves while walking. Shellie also demonstrated Sa02 monitors and pulse oximeters, reviewed the importance of diaphragmatic breathing, and gave us lessons on how to perform it correctly.

sarcoidosis walkAlso discussed was how to monitor daily air quality reports so that we could avoid outdoor activity on days when the air quality could be damaging to our already weakened pulmonary systems (airnow.gov). The group learned how to sign up for email and text alerts.

Those of us, who were able, walked the trails in the park. Those who couldn’t walk enjoyed the fresh air and beautiful day from the gazebo. It was a wonderful day of educational learning and exercising.
