Noida, October 15, 2017: Jaypee Hospital in collaboration with Blue Air, one of the reputed air purifier companies in the world, undertook a noble initiative to spread awareness about respiratory problems caused by the increased air pollution, by organising  a free health check-up camp today for the policemen of Noida and nearby areas.  Considering the onset of winters and rise in the pollution level in Delhi- NCR, Jaypee Hospital as a part of its social responsibility held an awareness talk for the policemen who are the watchtowers and first line of our society’s defence, during all hazardous conditions.

The objective of organizing this special health camp was to spread awareness on the increase in respiratory problems. On this occasion, Dr. Gyanendra Agarwal, Senior Consultant, Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine, Jaypee Hospital delivered a health talk where he shared his insights on the causes, symptoms and treatment of respiratory disorders. “Rising pollution levels are impacting us in more ways than we assume. Almost 30% increase has been observed in the respiratory diseases related to air pollution. Earlier, the respiratory disorders were common in people of age above 55 years but with the increase in pollutants, such problems are now common in people as young as of 25 years. This is an alarming situation for the people in India. It is hence very important for people of all the age groups to maintain a healthy lifestyle and take proper precautions.” Dr. Gyanendra Agarwal explained.

Hence, we decided to join hands with Jaypee Hospital and help them in educating on the causes, effects and precautions for respiratory diseases. Under this initiative, Jaypee Hospital distributed N-95 masks to around 500 cops present on the occasion. N-95 masks have air-purifying respirators which block small particulates and protect against harmful gases that are present in concentrations becoming hazardous to all life forms.”

The policemen appreciated the gesture and vowed to spread this awareness further to their colleagues, friends and family. Jaypee Hospital has been at the forefront of organising such health camps where eminent physicians provide relevant insights into various health problems faced by the society.
