We started PulmonaryScan with one goal in mind: educate individuals with bad smoking/vaping habits about the dangers and health risks it imposes on their body, and possibly help them in their journey to become addiction-free. Watching our high school peers greatly harming their fundamental organs gave us a unique perspective on the widespread usage of harmful substances. This experience pushed our founding members to the drawing board, with a goal of finding a viable solution to try to help mitigate this crisis. Additionally, we also understood how pressing other lung issues were to society through research into lung-related diseases. Specifically, COPD was an affliction that we saw as extremely pressing. With that in mind, we thought that a free, quick COPD screening test could positively benefit users as well. After weeks of development, PulmonaryScan was born. With a simplistic design and easy to use interface, PulmonaryScan is divided into 5 sections, which are detailed below:
COPD Screening Test
The COPD Screening test is an interactive questionnaire engineered by PulmonaryScan to help individuals discern if they need further evaluation by a medical professional regarding their COPD/Bronchitis/Emphysema symptoms. This examination is comprised of 8 short questions regarding one's symptoms and conditions, and one interactive question to examine the performance of the user's lungs. Results of the test will then be analyzed, and a recommendation regarding further examination will be made.
*disclaimer* This test does in no way serve as an actual medical diagnosis. The purpose of the test is to make a preliminary recommendation in regard to seeking further advice from a licensed professional. Again, please do not use the results of this test as absolute medical diagnosis.
