Spirometry testing event
Munich “blows” for healthy lungs: This was the slogan for the 2006 European Lung Foundation (ELF)/ERS spirometry event, which took place in Munich city centre on the Odeonsplatz on Friday and Saturday, September 1 and 2, 2006.
The event aimed to raise public awareness of lung disease in general and COPD in particular, as part of the ELF’s mission to promote lung diseases to the public on behalf of the ERS.
The final number tested was over 2,000 – a new record for this event. For the first time, the results from all the tests are going to be combined with the questionnaires completed by each participant.
