Canopy Event at Ahmednagar

In an initiative to raise awareness on asthma, Breathefree a public service initiative by Cipla organized a 'Canopy Event' at 10 prominent places in Ahmednagar from 22 November to 01st December 2013.

A self-contained Canopy equipped with diagnostic tools such as Peak Flow Meter, educational materials and a team of Cipla ‘Breathefree Educators’ were present at all locations.

The crowd was excited about the Canopy placed in their locality and each location had a turnout of about 180 - 200 patients.

Total 2171 general public had done the “Lung Check -up” out of which 479 patients were referred to Doctors, as their actual PEFR (Peak Expiratory Flow Rate) was significantly less than desired PEFR (Peak Expiratory Flow Rate). This data indicates that the prevalence of airway disease was as high as 22 % of sample population. These suspected patients were given free consultation by breathefree doctors.

Of these many were diagnosed for asthma for the first time and many were convinced about inhalation therapy being the best and most effective treatment for asthma.

We would like to thanks to doctors Dr Suhas Walekar, Dr Nilesh Parzane, Dr Sanjeev Gadge, Dr Santosh Gursal, Dr Shyam Gurud, Dr Sandeep Thube, Dr Santosh Gugale, Dr Harshal Chitale, Dr Abhijit Borude & Dr Ayub Khan who were involved in this event.
