MOH: Tips for Asthma Patients
14 April 2019

​The Ministry of Health (MOH) warned asthma patients against crowdedness, exhaust gases and dust, which are among the causes of the main respiratory distress. Through an Infographic published in its twitter page, within the campaign "#Healthy Umrah", MOH stressed the importance of consulting a doctor before Umrah, taking rest, avoiding crowdedness and visiting the emergency if inhaler cannot relieve your asthma attack.​

As a part of its Umrah awareness campaign, MOH underlined the importance of taking bronchodilators before physical exertion, wearing a bracelet around the wrist showing your medical data and carrying the prescribed asthma inhaler.  
Such awareness-raising activities come in continuation of MOH's efforts to maintain the health and safety of all community members, to promote health awareness and to urge individuals to adopt healthy behaviors.
