Asthma is a disease nowadays that is very common in the Indian population especially living in big metropolitan cities of India like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata Hyderabad. Asthma is not a very new disease Asthma is known to mankind for very long-time evidence of asthma found dated back to 2000 B.C.E in Chinese & Egyptian scripture as breathlessness and respiratory distress
Our understanding of asthma and other respiratory disorder developed in the recent 2-3 decades with the recent advance in medical & Diagnostics technology, Still the common understanding in the general population is very less, incomplete, and half-baked.
People in India finds very difficult to differentiate asthma with other look-a-like respiratory illness Such pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, Copd Etc
In this series, we are trying to clear the fog and the myth about Asthma and its treatment
Normally people think disease like asthma never become life-threatening unlike other metabolic disorders Such as diabetes, hypertension, and other infectious diseases
but the fact is among the 1.3 billion population of India about 6% of children and 2% of Adults have Asthma. As per the “global Report 2018” in India. Almost 0.40 million people died from asthma-related illnesses. India has a very huge economic burden of asthma because of poor health infrastructure, poverty, poor knowledge of understanding the sign and symptoms of asthma which resulted in less number of death could much higher as reported
Another eye-opener is as per the estimates of the CDC (Centre for disease control and prevention) of the USA. Every day 9 people died from asthma daily think about the situation in our country you will get the ideas how serious the condition in our country
So, you should take this seriously, take medication regularly, consult your family physician or pulmonologist promptly
In India 2-3 decades back physician and patient are happy to take oral medication to manage the symptom such as cough, breathlessness, acute attack.But because of poor knowledge about the disease, non-availability of inhalation medicine such as inhalers, nebulizers If available cost is too much to afford
Now the paradigm has been shifted towards inhalers because of the increased internet awareness, higher literacy rate easy availability of inhalation .government control on medicine also makes inhalation medicine economic and easily available
Infect inhaler required very little medicine and reaches the direct site of action. i.e. lungs and But if you take the tablets. First goes into the stomach then into the blood and finally reaches your lungs where it is actually required. Oral tablets produce lots of side effects Such as cardiac arrest, shivering, etc also delayed onset of action. With this example, you can better understand the benefit of inhalers over the tablet. To manage acute attack you require only 100 mcg of drug whereas in the case of tablet your 4mg tablet is 40 times higher dose than an inhaler
Nowadays many companies are trying to increase awareness about inhalers and inhalers techniques. You can also visit these informative websites such as breathe free by CIPLA-a leading manufacturer of inhaler device in India
So next time ask your doctor to prescribe an inhaler rather than a tablet to manage your asthma symptoms
