Walgreens has some important questions to ask. Have you ever smoked? Are you regularly exposed to irritants in the air? Do you have chronic cough, shortness of breath or high blood pressure? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, you could be at risk for developing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, C-O-P-D, and you should consider having a simple breathing test. The breathing test - called spirometry - measures your lungs’ airflow and volume, two excellent indicators of lung health. Walgreens is offering this test FREE from October 21st through November 1st as part of their commitment to lung health. Early detection of C-O-P-D is critical. Walgreens makes it so easy. Local respiratory therapists will be at the screenings to answer all your questions about C-O-P-D and your lung test results. For more information about the Walgreens’ free screenings, the toll-free number is 1-800-645-3099. This health promotion event is sponsored by Walgreens and supported by the American Association for Respiratory Care and Boehringer Ingleheim.
