Prevalence and Risk Factors of Occupation Induced Asthma among Traffic Police in Bangalore City

Author: A.MUTHUKUMAR , RUMANA KHATIJA, R. SUNDARAGANAPATHY, BENISON BINNY, RAJENDRA SANDR V, AMIT KUMAR DAS
Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the cumulative effect of traffic related pollutants on subjects which mainly included traffic police. This evaluation is important to cater to the statistic that occupational asthma is the most common form of lung disease in the world which places the population with high exposure at great risk. We qualify the effect of exposure to pollutants like carbon monoxide, particulate diesel and other gaseous pollutant which can cause interminable harm that demonstrate as migraine, hazy vision, trouble in focus and confusion. They may also be carcinogenic with higher rates of malignancy. The predominance of respiratory complications among the policemen in highly polluted areas is higher than their counterparts. A careful assessment of history and quantification of severity markers and peak expiratory flow rate helps us identify patients who may require intensive immediate care or even hospitalization. The main objective of this work is to analyze the present health status of these policemen who work in extreme work conditions to ensure the safety of the public. It was also observed that the number of studies on assessing the health problems among traffic police in India is less. Hence, asthma mortality can be controlled by better understanding of the disease and reliability on prophylaxis rather than treatment. This research aims to assess the health problems among traffic police and provide a self instructional module to create awareness about health problems with its prevention amongst all traffic police officers in Bangalore City.
