When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. Millions of people in the U.S. have lung disease. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the United States.
To help you learn whether you are at risk of having a lung disorder, Presence United Samaritans Medical Center provides you with LungAware, a free, confidential 7-minute online questionnaire. After completing your evaluation, you will be able to print out a custom report. In addition, you might be eligible for a free 15 minute consultation with one of our nurses.
If you any questions, please call us at call (217) 477-2789.
