Bahwan Healthcare launches

Muscat, Sultanate of Oman 31 May 2015:

In its continuous focus on employee engagement and welfare, Bahwan healthcare Centre - a flag ship company under Suhail Bahwan Group, recently launched "BreathEasy" Campaign for its employees.

Launched at the Bahwan Medical Centre, Al Khuwair, in association with Cipla - a global pharmaceutical manufacturing company - the campaign aims at checking how well a person breathes in and out and diagnosing various lung conditions through a simple Spirometry test.

Dr Ashok Kumar Jain, Chief Medical Officer, Bahwan Medical Centre said, "This test is particularly useful for chronic smokers, persons having troublesome cough at night, wheezing or cough after exercise, chest tightness or cough after exposure to pollutants or persons with a family history of asthma. Once the results of the Spirometry test are known, we will be able to advice proper preventive and curative measures to the person."

The campaign will be conducted at periodic intervals to cover all employees over a period of time.
