CALLOWAY COUNT, KY (KFVS) - Murray-Calloway County Hospital's Health Express will be offering blood pressure checks, pulse and pulmonary function screenings during June.
The screenings will be at Weaks Senior Center in Murray on June 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:20 a.m.
They are free to the communities visited by Health Express and are help detect diseases in the earliest stages when there are often no symptoms. The hospital says pulmonary function tests evaluate how well the lungs work. The screening determines how much air lungs can hold, how quickly the body can move air in and out of your lungs and how well the lungs put oxygen into and remove carbon dioxide from the bloodstream. The test can screen for lung diseases, measure the severity of lung problems and monitor how well treatment for a lung disease is working.
