Muscat, Sultanate of Oman 15 March 2016
Bahwan Healthcare Centre – a flag ship company under Suhail Bahwan Group- recently organized the second edition of "BreathEasy" campaign for its employees.
The campaign was held at the Group's headquarters Al Rawaq Building in Qurum, in association with Cipla – a global pharmaceutical manufacturing company. Large number of employees registered and underwent the test conducted by specialists from Cipla.
Held as part of its ongoing employee engagement and welfare activities, the campaign aims at checking how well a person breathes and diagnosing the lung conditions of the individuals through a simple Spirometry test. The tests provide valuable information about the type of pulmonary deficits of an individual and can be used to monitor different respiratory tract disorders.
Dr Ashok Kumar Jain, Chief Medical Officer, Bahwan Medical Centre said, "This test is particularly useful for chronic smokers, persons having troublesome cough at night, wheezing or cough after exercise, chest tightness or cough after exposure to pollutants or persons with a family history of asthma. Once the results of the Spirometry test are known, we will be able to advice proper preventive and curative measures to the person."
