I made a report: Alina V. Chervinskaya. Program for the early detection of respiratory diseases and respiratory rehabilitation “Lung Health”.
The report presented results of mass-survey of workers of industrial enterprises belonging to different fields, and having high level of exogenous respiratory risk factors. It described the need for early detection of chronic lung diseases and of professionally conditioned pathology, the need for timely preventive and rehabilitative measures. At the Clinical Hospital №122, we have accumulated extensive experience in the application of non-drug approaches. Controlled halotherapy is used by us as one of the most effective methods for prevention and rehabilitation in the respiratory practice. The method is promising for widespread application within the program “Lung Health”.
