People suffering from symptoms such as tightness in the chest, wheezing, episodic breathlessness, seasonal variations, long-standing and recurring cough, can now get themselves checked at the Respiratory & Lung Diseases Camp, which is being organised by SMRC’s VM Salgaocar Hospital, Chicalim, on July 2, 2022 from 11 am onwards.
The camp will be headed by an expert in asthma and allergy treatment, Dr Sameer Nanaware. He will conduct a systematic assessment and create a treatment plan for the patients to ensure each one gets personalised care.
The camp aims to improve the standard of living for people suffering from asthma.
Speaking about the camp, Dr Sameer Nanaware said, “Our asthma camp is a step towards treating patients with the right care and educating them to know the type and cause of asthma. The lack of awareness among patients who under-treat asthma, suffer from sleep disturbance, tiredness during the day and poor concentration, holds them back while performing daily activities."
"Therefore, through this camp, we will monitor the patients and provide them with the required treatment to control the underlying inflammation, curb symptoms and attacks. Although, asthma can be managed so that patients can live a normal, healthy lifestyle, the more one learns about their condition, the better they can manage it to maintain their quality of life," he added.
