Participation of Tonio Borg, Member of the EC, at a spirometry test on the occasion of the Spirometry Day

Tonio Borg, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, participated in the breathing test, called spirometry, organised by the European Coalition against Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
COPD is a progressive lung disease whose symptoms include shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing and recurrent respiratory infections. As the disease progresses, many patients suffer 'exacerbations', which typically involve a sudden worsening of the symptoms and, in the most severe cases, can lead to respiratory failure. Exacerbations are treated with bronchodilators, antibiotics and steroids.
