Measuring patient’s lung age with the Lung Life is a great way to provide motivation, low cost COPD screening and tangible evidence of the damage caused by smoking.
As we age our lungs age too and their function is reduced. In smokers this happens at a faster rate. So a person who smokes can be 30 years old but his lungs can be the same of a non smoker who is of 50 years. .Smoking is one of the main causes of COPD( a progressive disease of the airways characterized by a gradual loss of lung function) Smoking is an addiction and the number of successful quitters is less than 10%. Quitting smoking requires significant self-motivation. Informing smokers about their lung age motivates them to ponder and improves the likelihood of quitting smoking.
