In total, more than 4,000 participants from all regions of the world are expected.

Lecture and educational programs are designed to improve the level of professionalism of specialists, including the primary link, to teach them to recognize pulmonary pathologies in the early stages of their development and to improve the qualifications of specialists. In addition, schools for teachers will be held to update information for students – future doctors.
During the XXVIII National Congress on Respiratory Diseases, specialists will discuss ways to improve the provision of pulmonary care for adults and children from primary care to high–tech medical care, the continuity of the provision of pulmonary care between pediatricians and adult doctors, military medical examination of citizens with respiratory diseases when they are called up for military service service, the formation of a healthy lifestyle among citizens of respiratory health and other important topics.

“One of the most important factors that preserve human health is a person’s attentive attitude to his own body and well–being,” said a member of the UN commission. – The main problem is that Russians often carry acute respiratory infections on their feet. The alleged ease of respiratory diseases leads to low access to specialists, an increase in complications and mortality. Early diagnosis and timely effective treatment contribute to recovery, improving the quality of life of patients, the ability to control the disease, while significantly reducing government spending.
Specialists–pulmonologists spoke out for introducing spirometry into the list of mandatory examinations for medical examinations at a press conference on the official launch of the federal social program Healthy Lungs, December 20
According to the chief freelance specialist of the pulmonologist of the Ministry of Health, the Research Institute of Pulmonology, the main structure of respiratory diseases remains pneumonia, COPD, bronchial asthma and a group of chronic diseases. In the whole country, 5–7% of the adult population have asthma, in children the prevalence of this disease is approximately 2.5 times higher, and in some regions it reaches 17%. “This is a lot,” the specialist emphasized. “Although according to official UN statistics, the figure is only 2.2%.”
Despite the tremendous success achieved in the fight against mortality from asthma (over the past 20 years the number of such cases has decreased by 30 times), deaths are still there, although they are few – 0.18 per 100 thousand of the population. 12% of asthmatics suffer from severe forms of the disease and need complex, expensive therapy. However, an example from clinical practice cited by Sergey Avdeev showed that out of 75 patients in need, only three receive the necessary drugs.
As for COPD, this obstructive disease can affect 15% of the adult population, it can develop in every 8th citizen after the age of 40 years. These statistics, by the way, fit into the global range (from 8 to 20%), the specialist noted. The main reason he called the prevalence of smoking. “In the world ranking for this indicator, we are not in first place, but in the“ honorary ”five. The world is a very smoking planet, 38% of adult men smoke. Over the past 5 years, the number of smokers has decreased by 8–9%, but still a lot, ”he said. The danger of COPD is that the disease increases the predisposition to pneumonia – for 1000 patients there is one case of this disease per year.
As one of the reasons for the development of asthma and COPD, the professor called the problems with diagnosis: in the early stages of the disease, they are almost asymptomatic. He sees ways to improve the situation in the introduction of spirometry to the list of compulsory examinations during medical examination, in the education of primary care physicians and middle staff, and educational work among the population.
