Lung and Respiratory Health Tips

Doctors Surani and Viray diagnose and treat disease, but they are also dedicated to helping patients prevent disease. Consider these tips to help you stay healthy:

  • No smoking! A leading cause of lung cancer and COPD, smoking narrows the airways and causes chronic inflammation.
  • Exercise. Heart-pumping aerobic exercise and breathing techniques can help improve lung function.
  • Avoid air pollution. This includes secondhand smoke, chemicals and poor outdoor air quality. Have your home tested for radon, too.
  • Fight off infection. Be sure to frequently wash your hands, don’t forget that flu shot and practice good dental hygiene.
  • Don’t skip checkups. Schedule well visits with your doctor. If you have lung or respiratory issues, you may want to see a pulmonologist.
