Keeping Up With Change
The best way to look at life is from a philosophical point of view. When you look at the world around you, what hits you is the suffering. It is not that only humans are suffering, but even the animals as well as nature is suffering too. Don’t the philosophers say that life is but a struggle? Every element in our atmosphere is struggling for survival. In our struggle for survival we find the meaning and purpose of our life, grow as individuals and learn to respect our environment and all beings around us.
We should be thankful that we are living in times where our society has made substantial progress in the fields of science, technology as well as medicine. Medical care and health services have improved beyond our recognition. The last century and the world wars perhaps saw the worst of human sufferings. Surprisingly it was during this period that the major stride in medicine and surgery were made. Antibiotics, x ray machines, surgical instruments and many medicines were discovered and used to treat the wounded soldiers in the battle field.
The ethnic strife in the African countries coupled with the famine and starvation is something that is very unfortunate and horrifying for the rest of the world. Though the developed and developing countries do their bit to aid the nation it is akin to small drops in the big ocean.
If you think that we are living amidst highly developed society and have nothing much to fear, you may be mistaken. We are facing environmental pollution and the resultant effects on our lives. You may be surprised that people are suffering from severe allergies and respiratory problems all over the world. These health problems are not limited to developing world or undeveloped world, but more so in the developed world which is considered to be more advanced and clean. Asthma is one such disease that is crippling lives of people including youngsters.
Thanks to modern medicines, fatal diseases like Asthma can be controlled and managed with effective medication like Albuterol. Understanding of the implications of the disease and the need to control as well as manage the condition calls for discipline in medication. Albuterol is a medication that should always be carried at all times with doctor’s prescription. Albuterol is highly effective and can give immediate relief to the patient within twenty minutes of inhalation. Patients with Asthma have got to be very careful with regard to exposure to allergy agents. The asthmatic attack can come on within minutes causing breathlessness and chest congestion. However, if you are carrying Albuterol and inhale using MDI or Nebulizer, the bronchial muscles get relaxed giving you immediate respite. Thanks to modern medicines, these well researched medicines are very safe for use as long as you use as per doctor’s prescription. Like every other drug, Albuterol too can sometimes cause side effects like nausea, headache, gastric trouble or palpitations in extreme cases. Should you feel any such discomfort, it is best to contact your doctor or rush to the nearest medical center immediately.
Medical science has advanced and help is at hand everywhere. It is for us individuals to keep ourselves educated and updated about the advancements in medicines to be able to live a better quality of life and gain control over our conditions.
