Hyderabad, Sept 4 (UNI) Senior Consultant of Cardiac and Lung Rehabilitation in Apollo Hspitals Dr Arora today said that Lung related ailments is the fourth largest killer in India accounting for 19 to 20 per cent of deaths, due to lifestyle habits and the younger population is falling victim to these diseases.
Speaking at the one-day "Symposium on Pulmonary Rehabilitation" being organised by the institute of Pulmonology, Apollo Hospitals here, Dr Arora said there is very little awareness about comprehensive treatment provided through evidence based rehabilitation for such ailments.
