HCM CITY — The HCM City-based University Medical Centre, in co-ordination with the HCM City Respiratory Society, provided free consulting and screening for respiratory diseases for 200 patients last Saturday marking the World Spirometry Day.
Held once every two years, World Spirometry Day falls on June 27 this year. It aims to promote the diagnosis of lung conditions and raise awareness about lung health, said Associate Professor Dr. Le Thi Tuyet Lan, head of the HCM City Respiratory Society.
Spirometry is a simple breathing test that can help diagnose various lung conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other respiratory conditions. — VNS
