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

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.

ORTHOPEDIC SUPPORTS & BRACES
Orthopedic Supports & Braces
We carry a wide variety of high-quality supports and braces to meet your home health care needs.
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.
