Winter Alert for patients suffering from respiratory diseases!

In

Patients suffering from respiratory diseases like Bronchial Asthma, COPD, ILD, Sarcoidosis and other lung diseases are prone to various problems in winters.

Winters are already at our doorstep and we need to have strategy to tackle upcoming problems like:

  • Exacerbation of COPD
  • Bronchial Asthma Attack
  • Intercurrent Viral (Flu)/ Bacterial infections

Patient need to assess their disease status before winters hit them. Helping tools are: :

  • Spirometery/ Pulmonary Function Test
  • Chest X-Rays
  • Medical management review: inhalers/ nebulisers
  • Prevention: vaccination

As per CDC guidelines vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of serious influenza complications or people who live with or care for people at higher risk for serious complications.

Higher risk patients: :

  • Anyone over the age of 65
  • Pregnant women
  • Children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease)
  • Children and adults with weakened immune systems
