Why Do We Climb? Fight for Air Stair Climb 2014

This past weekend, the Lung Institute participated as a proud sponsor of the Fight for Air Stair Climb, an event hosted by the American Lung Association in support of lung disease research, education and prevention. The stair climb happens in tall buildings in different cities across the United States. Often, firefighters and law enforcement participate in the climb wearing their full gear to show support for the cause.

This is the second consecutive year that the Lung Institute team has participated in the event. As a team, we agree that this challenge definitely put our lungs to the test! We ran up 42 floors in the Bank of America building in downtown Tampa and look forward to participating in the event again next year.

Why Do We Climb?

We climbed for all of the people across the nation suffering from the debilitating symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis and interstitial lung disease, and most importantly we climbed for our patients at the Lung Institute.


If you or a loved one has COPD or other lung disease and want to learn more about treatment options, contact us or call 888-745-6697.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months of COPD patients.

All claims made regarding the efficacy of Lung Institute's treatments as they pertain to pulmonary conditions are based solely on anecdotal support collected by Lung Institute. Individual conditions, treatment and outcomes may vary and are not necessarily indicative of future results. Testimonial participation is voluntary. Lung Institute does not pay for or script patient testimonials.

As required by Texas state law, the Lung Institute Dallas Clinic has received Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval from MaGil IRB, now Chesapeake IRB, which is fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Program (AAHRPP), for research protocols and procedures. The Lung Institute has implemented these IRB approved standards at all of its clinics nationwide. Approval indicates that we follow rigorous standards for ethics, quality, and protections for human research.

Each patient is different. Results may vary.
