The department of respiratory diseases at Christian Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) organised a free medical camp at its Field Ganj centre here yesterday to mark “World COPD Day” in which over 200 patients were examined.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Akashdeep Singh, pulmonologist at the hospital, said this year’s slogan was “breathless but not helpless.” Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was basically characterised by decrease in the ability of lungs to maintain the body’s oxygen supply and remove carbon dioxide.

According to him, the main aim of organising the camp at Field Ganj locality was its population and crowded residential and commercial area. The majority of the population belonged to economically weaker sections and labour class.
