Free pulmonary function tests part of Respiratory Care Week

Celebrate Respiratory Care Week with a free pulmonary function test, followed by a program that explains what the test values mean and how your healthcare provider uses those values to diagnose lung diseases such as asthma, emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The program takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22 at Upstate’s HealthLink site, 6333 Route 298 in East Syracuse. Robert Lenox MD, the division chief for pulmonary and critical care at Upstate University Hospital, is the main speaker.

Pulmonary function testing will be conducted by Upstate respiratory therapists starting at 5 p.m. Make your reservation by calling Upstate Connect at 1-315-464-8668.
