A Respiratory Health Survey and Effects of Air Pollution In Urban Community

Sanchit Menon, Anshuman Sharma, Vikas Dhillon


The Community Respiratory Health Survey was planned to answer specific questions about the distribution of asthma and health care given for asthma in the Urban Community. There is various evidence that suggests that air pollution contributes to the large global burden of respiratory and allergic diseases including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia and possibly tuberculosis.

Although associations between air pollution and respiratory disease are difficult to prove, but recent studies have led to an increased recognition of the emerging importance of traffic-related air pollution in both developed and less-developed countries.

This study indicate that air pollution from these sources is a major preventable cause of increased incidence and exacerbation of respiratory disease. Physicians can help to reduce the risk of adverse respiratory effects of exposure to biomass and traffic air pollutants by promoting awareness and supporting individual and community-level interventions.
