Asthma can Be Checked, Experts are Confident

facilities, in general, are poorer than in the urban areas. The management methods are being tailored to the availability, accessibility and cost of infrastructure.

The Respiratory Research Foundation of India will conduct a free screening camp in Chennai the capital of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu on May 2, the World Asthma Day, its chairman Narasimhan said.

The Foundation will also distribute asthma cards that will entitle the card-holders to three months' free supply of steroid inhalers.

A person needing two doses spends Rs. 8 a day on inhaler drugs. They last 45 days. Though the cost appears to be high, by denying treatment, asthma could turn into chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). Asthma is reversible, but COPD is not, he warned.

Steroids, when taken intermittently, do not act well on asthma, he noted.

The burden of asthma seems to continue to increase despite all the solutions. It affects 3.5 per cent to over 20 per cent of the population in any country. On World Asthma Day new resolutions are likely to be taken up by many countries. However if you want to fight asthma you have to fight pollution.
