Pulmonary aspirations from Havlíčkův Brod Hospital and Pelhřimov Hospital will join the World BOPL on Wednesday, November 21, commemorating chronic obstructive disease.
The action is on the pulmonary ambulance Havlíčkův Brod Hospital from 12.00 to 15.00 and pulmonary outpatients Pelhrimov Hospital from 12.00 to 15.00.
COPD is chronic bronchitis associated with narrowing and reconstruction of lung tissue. Symptoms and risks of this disease tend to be neglected. Most patients go late to the practitioner and the lung practitioner, that is, to the dyspnea that restricts the subject in his life activities. Inflammation and bronchial obstruction arise from external and internal negative factors, of which the most important are pollutant inhalation (in three quarters of active smoking cases). It is largely a long-term process that leads to a significant deterioration in pulmonary function. Contemporary medicine can slow the worsening of the disease, but it can not prevent COPD. Unfortunately, the mortality rate is increasing in the Czech Republic, so preventing this disease is as important as the treatment itself. COPD is a particular disease for people over 40 years of age.
COPD can be affected by prevention and treatment. Both hospitals invite free lung function check, if necessary, the doctor orders the patient for further examination. The purpose of the event is to increase people's interest in their own health and, if they are active smokers or often stay in smoking areas, to emphasize the need for preventive pulmonary examinations. Spirometry is an exam where a doctor detects pulmonary function. It is done with a spirometer – a device that records the patient's breathing and tests the lungs' ability and ability to breathe and breathe. Breathing is recorded as a graph showing lung volume over time. It allows the discovery and finding of the most common pulmonary pathology – especially respiratory tract disorders typical of asthmatics or patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He can detect tracheal tract disorders, he can find a number of other affections that affect the lungs themselves.
