Good Advice For Good Breathing on NDTV

Our ethos imbibes in us even in the times of COVID

An excellent self-initiative by an employee in Nepal. On request from a doctor the associate joined the active line of professionals fighting COVID-19. Here’s her story -

Since Dr. Ramesh Chokhani was getting a lot of patients even during the lockdown, he reached out to one of our employees

Ms.Bishakha Subedi (Cipla BFE ) and asked if she could help with counselling on inhaler technique.

Wanting to contribute to the society, Ms Bishakha convinced her family of the safety precautions and humbly accepted, in spite of having a two year old daughter.

She now does daily counselling sessions for 8-10 patients and is helping them with their inhalers. Cipla supported her noble efforts and has provided her safety equipments like mask & gloves. The purpose of committing to caring for patients continues to be the core of everything we do.

Patient Help Videos on Inhalers

Inhalers/ Nasal Sprays are the most important aspect in the management of Asthma, COPD and Allergic Rhinitis. In the times of COVID- 19, physical consultation of patients has been severely affected. Because of which, the doctor/ respiratory counsellor is not able to physically train the patients on the correct usage of inhalers and nasal sprays. We recognized this problem faced by the doctors and patients. To address this problem, we circulated the small videos of ‘How to Use Cipla Inhalers’. These small videos consist of a comprehensive explanation of parts of the inhaler, proper inhaler technique and Do’s and Don’ts of the Inhaler. The doctor will be able to use these videos to efficiently drive the Right inhaler techniques through the digital media to his/ her respective patients. We have addressed an unmet need of providing Inhaler best practices without physical presence. The benefit of these videos will be passed on to over 2000 doctors and countless patients across 9 countries in the Emerging Markets.
