  • 332356 HHC Catalog ~NJ 6/29/07 9:52 AM Page 5 ASTHMA & ALLERGY Asthma & Allergy Asthma is a disease of the airways in the lungs caused by a sensitivity to certain stimuli. When sufferers encounter these stimuli, their bodies produce mucus that blocks or obstructs air to the lungs. Symptoms include wheezing, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, and a cough lasting more than a week. People with asthma should understand that it is a serious condition. Receiving appropriate medical treatment will enable you to learn to live with this disease. Many asthma sufferers will be prescribed some form of medication, either administered daily or at the first sign of an attack. Different types of respiratory aids are available to help administer these medications and monitor their effects. Nebulizers turn liquid medication into aerosol, allowing it to reach all areas of the lungs and bronchi. Nebulizers can also administer antibiotics or bronchodilators. A peak-flow meter measures the exhaled force of the lungs. By using it, asthmatics can often prevent an attack by looking for early warning signs. Asthma sufferers can also “breathe easier” with the help of Air Purification Systems, Humidifiers, Vaporizers, and Inhalers. Your pharmacist can assist you in selecting the best device for your situation, and ensure that your doctor’s instructions are properly carried out.

INCONTINENCE Learning About Incontinence Care Incontinence, the loss of bladder or bowel control, is a common condition that affects over 12 million people in North America, 85% of whom are women. The largest number of sufferers are the elderly, but incontinence also affects children, young adults, and about half of all first-time pregnant women. Many conditions and disorders can cause incontinence. Pelvic surgery or injuries to the pelvic region or spinal cord, neurological diseases, cancer, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, polio, diabetes, infection, loss of muscle tone, and an enlarged prostate gland in men are among the many causes of incontinence. Bed wetting is also a form of incontinence. Incontinence can cause anxiety, depression, and disruption of people’s lives, detracting from the quality of life. Many sufferers are unwilling to discuss the problem publicly because of embarrassment. Some sufferers lose self-esteem and isolate themselves for fear of ridicule. If you or someone you know is incontinent, remember that help is available for everyone, and there are many new techniques that can successfully treat all types of incontinence. Special products are also now available to manage even the severest occurrences of loss of bladder control. Your pharmacy personnel are trained and informed about the different products you may need, please ask us for help in selecting the products best for your situation.

Choosing the correct fabric for your injury or condition is important, and the following are a few tips to assist you in your selection. To choose between a neoprene or an elastic fabric, you need to consider whether you want to support the muscles or joints with or without heat retention. Neoprene can be applied to a joint or muscle for compression and support with retention of body heat. The area under the support becomes very warm because a neoprene fabric retains your neutral body heat and keeps your muscles loose and flexible. This can be very important in the prevention of injuries because warm muscles or joints may be less susceptible to injury than cold muscles. Neoprene should be the fabric of choice for people with arthritic conditions and for those who wish to prevent injury during sports or activity. An elastic fabric can be applied as a supportive compression after an injury to help reduce swelling and support damaged tissues. Supports made of this fabric can also be used for general support of weak, injured, or stiff joints and for acute or chronic conditions.
