Recently there was a storm in Delhi and many surrounding areas. Since then, the number of asthma patients in hospitals has been increasing. Other people may also face problems due to dust storm. Let us know about it from experts.

On Friday evening, the weather took a turn and suddenly there was a strong storm in Delhi and surrounding areas. Due to the stormy winds, dust particles increased in many areas. Many people are facing a lot of trouble due to this. Patients suffering from asthma and other respiratory diseases are coming to hospitals. Experts say that due to the storm in Delhi, the number of 'thunderstorm asthma' patients may increase. In such a situation, people need to take special care of their health. Let us first know what is 'Thunderstorm Asthma'.

Dr. Bharat Gopal of Delhi Heart and Lung Institute explains that 'Thunderstorm Asthma' is a condition in which the amount of allergy causing particles in the air suddenly increases after a storm. Due to this, people may face problems like difficulty in breathing, cough, chest pain and wheezing. These symptoms may increase in asthma patients. Especially the problems of children and elderly asthma patients may increase. Dr. Bharat says that the problem of thunderstorm asthma may increase after the storm. In such a situation, protection is necessary.

Who is at greater risk?

Due to thunderstorm asthma, people who are already suffering from asthma and respiratory problems face more problems. People who have problems with dust, dirt and fine garbage particles. The problems of people who are heart patients may also increase. It can also affect the health of pregnant women.

According to Dr. Bhagwan Mantri, pulmonologist at Moolchand Hospital, Delhi, respiratory problems may increase due to increase in dust in the environment. This happens because dust particles enter the lungs through breath and cause allergies. The problem increases for those patients who already have any respiratory disease. At present, if the weather continues to deteriorate like this in the future, there is a danger of the problem increasing further. In such a situation, it is important to take precautions in advance.
