About

Welcome to PulmonaryFibrosisTogether.com, I am Elaine. A pulmonary triage RN at Duke University. I have 20 years experience in critical care and triage. Each day of my nursing career, patients asked questions about their disease process. It wasn’t until I realized my own health condition was limiting my ability to work bedside; that I realized it was time for me to start helping patients in a more modern way. At this time triaging pulmonary patients, seemed to be all I could do. This blog is a step towards volunteering my time to educate patients and caregivers on how to make the best out of their pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis.
