There are over four million patients like me in Poland, patients suffering from asthma – said journalist Agata Młynarska, associated with the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity since the first Orchestra Finale, in “Fakty po Faktach”. She admitted that she never thought that one day she would “play for herself.” Wojciech Feleszko, a habilitated doctor of medical sciences, emphasized that “the needs are great because the last two or three years have shown how much damage the lungs have suffered during the pandemic, and in a completely unexpected way.”

THE PARTNER OF THE 32nd FINAL OF THE GREAT ORCHESTRA OF CHRISTMAS CHARITY IS TVN WARNER BROS. DISCOVERY POLAND.

32nd Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity on TVN24TVN24

Młynarska: I never thought in my life that I would play for myself

Journalist Agata Młynarska – who, together with… Jerzy Owsiak she conducted the first finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity in 1993 – and Wojciech Feleszko, a pediatrician, immunologist and pediatric pulmonologist, habilitated doctor of medical sciences, spoke in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 about Sunday’s Finale.

– I never imagined, when we stood in the studio during the first Final and for the next 31 years, that I would also be playing for myself – admitted Młynarska. She added: – There are over four million patients like me in Poland, patients suffering from asthma.

– Every tenth suffers from severe asthma. How many of these patients do not know they have asthma? How many are not yet well diagnosed? And this means that it is also not treated well and effectively, she continued.

She pointed out that spirometers “are essential equipment for good asthma diagnosis.” The journalist said that “there are patients who – unfortunately, mostly due to lack of access to this equipment – are doomed to exclusion from life, to a very low quality of life and they are said to be dying, passing away, barely able to breathe in solitude.”

– I was lucky that my breathing was restored – she admitted to the TVN24 guest, emphasizing that she received help in a hospital in Łódź.

“The last two or three years have shown how much damage the lungs have suffered during the pandemic.”

– We, as pulmonologists, were a bit of an unloved child, we have the impression. Because it’s the 32nd final and it’s only the first time we’re playing for the sake of our lungs, Feleszko said.

He emphasized that “we do not say this with regret, but with joy.” – And we are really looking forward to what the Orchestra will win for us. Or not only the Orchestra, because we play ourselves – he added.

The doctor also emphasized that “the needs are indeed great, because the last two or three years have shown how much damage the lungs have suffered during the pandemic, and in a completely unexpected way.” – Because the first Covid, of course, causes major lung damage, adults lying in ICUs, ventilated, major lung damage later – he recalled.

As the TVN24 guest said, there are many people around us “who have huge breathing problems and they are adults.” – Maybe fewer children, but as a pediatrician, I have to tell you about what happened after the pandemic. The pandemic ended, everything opened up and then waves of further viral infections started – said the pulmonologist, adding that “we saw such a wave of infections in pediatrics.”
