Running the service:

Identifying patients and explaining the service;
Conducting the questionnaire to identify the risk of COPD;
Measurement of respiratory parameters using the Vitalogic COPD-6 device;
Printing the results and explaining them to patients;
Providing advice on a healthy lifestyle, quitting smoking and if necessary, directing to the Doctor.

Place of deployment:

By testing the pulmonary function with the help of spirometriei, patients can be determined by the pulmonary age. It can also be traced if the respiratory function is normal, if blocked, inflamed or obstructed. Deterioration of lung function affects overall health and quality of life.

The main benefit of this campaign is to detect people who are at risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD (chronic obstructive obstructive pulmonary). Another benefit is that following the test, the patient finds out if it is necessary to consult with the doctor for further investigation.
