November is Lung Health Awareness Month & Every Breath Counts

During November the Lung Foundation Australia (LFA) is urging you to check in with your breathing, reminding us that lung disease does not discriminate - it affects the young, old, male, female, smokers, former-smokers and never smokers.

The ‘Just One Breath’ campaign by the LFA is #inspiringlunghealth throughout the month of November through encouraging all Australians who haven’t yet, to complete their simple 2 minute online Lung Health checklist.

According to the Lung Foundation Australia, over 50% of the population rarely consider their lung health or otherwise fail to take it seriously.

“While we make a special effort to remind everyone about the importance of good lung health during this month, the message is one for all of us, every day of the year,” says the Lung Foundation Australia.

And considering that each day we breathe in 22,000 times, imagine what you can do with just one breath - or just one survey?

Schiller & Ganshorn are leaders in respiratory technology committed to providing more accurate diagnoses to deliver better patient outcomes. Examples of some of our leading technology includes the first ultrasonic diffusion testing system and the first ultrasonic body plethysmography system.
