One of the examinations carried out during a medical check-up is a lung examination. This lung examination is performed by interview, physical examination, x-rays, and sometimes spirometry. This is to assess lung function, are there certain diseases, and certain habits, such as smoking.

To maintain lung health, it is better to stop smoking. By quitting smoking, it does not only protect the lungs, but also maintains the health of the lungs of the family and those around them. Therefore, your husband should start learning to quit smoking.
