Making nebulization therapy more accessible
to Iranian and Tunisian patients
- AstraZeneca and Rossmax provide affordable nebulizers for home care
- AstraZeneca recently established isolated respiratory emergency rooms in various hospitals in Iran and Tunisia
Iranians and Tunisians can now access more affordable home respiratory care thanks to an agreement signed by AstraZeneca and Rossmax to provide discounted nebulizers for home care.
The three-year programme aims to support patients who require nebulization therapy at home by providing a discount on the purchase of Rossmax’s NE100 home nebulizer with free delivery to patients.
Patients can enrol in the programme through a referral by their treating physician or by contacting a hotline. They will be provided with discount vouchers and information materials relating to asthma care.
Rossmax will also provide AstraZeneca with nebulizers free-of-charge, for hospitals where nebulizers have been installed by AstraZeneca.
Jürg Frei, CEO Rossmax Swiss, said: “We are very happy to bring our latest nebulizer technologies to Iranian and Tunisian households. There is a significant need for top-quality products and thanks to our strategic partner, AstraZeneca, we now have direct access to patients who suffer from chronic respiratory diseases such as COPD, asthma, and bronchitis. Rossmax products treat the upper respiratory tract and even reach the deepest lung periphery, making us unique in the industry.”
In September 2021, AstraZeneca established the first isolated respiratory emergency room at the Imam Reza Hospital in Tabriz – one of the main treatment centres for COVID-19 patients in Iran – to make emergency care more safely and readily accessible to respiratory patients. Since then three additional nebulizer rooms and one mobile unit have been set up, with more planned across 12 hospitals in 2022. Furthermore, AstraZeneca recently established isolated respiratory emergency rooms at 5 hospitals in Tunis Capital, Sousse and Sfax, including at the only specialized paediatric hospital in Tunisia.
Due to the pandemic, patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions face additional risks when accessing emergency departments where patients with COVID-19 infections are also usually treated.
Rami Scander, Country President for the Near East and the Maghreb Cluster, AstraZeneca, said: “We welcome this partnership with Rossmax to help us make critical home-based and emergency care more accessible to Iranian asthma patients. AstraZeneca is offering comprehensive solutions to nebulization needs to further reduce hospital walk-ins and overcome challenges that have been raised by COVID-19. The isolated emergency rooms equipped with nebulizers are critical for patients facing situations like acute asthma attacks and other acute respiratory diseases. We look forward to supporting more respiratory patients across Iran and Tunisia.”
As per the latest study of the WHO, more than 700 million people live with untreated hypertension

Fever - One of the COVID-19 Symptoms
In addition to a cough and shortness of breath, public health institutions list "fever," as one of the symptoms of the coronavirus COVID-19. Fever is one of the body's defense mechanisms.
When bacteria or viruses get into your body and cause it to malfunction, the body goes on the defensive and your immune system is activated. When this happens, a central nerve in the brain allows the heat generated inside the body to be turned up from the usually constant level. This higher temperature level increases the metabolism and prevents the increase of pathogenic agents.
Besides our state-of-the-art Blood Pressure Monitors, Blood Glucose Monitors, Nebulizers we offer also products for measuring COVID-19 SYMPTOMS, like our Pulse Oximeters.

How correlates COVID-19 with chronic diseases?
CARDIOVASCULAR - To keep the blood pressure under control by eating well, maintaining a healthy weight, increasing physical activity, and managing stress are very important. We strongly recommend to monitor and track the blood pressure at home. High blood pressure is the most common comorbidity seen in patients hospitalized for COVID-19.
DIABETES - If you have diabetes keep it under control. Initial research shows that having diabetes may worsen the outcomes of COVID-19. Follow your doctor’s orders for checking your blood sugar regularly and maintaining a healthy diet.

COVID-19: The Symptoms
Cases surge, more people are sensitized to terms like “oxygen saturation” and “pulse oximeter” in the context of COVID-19 infection. The virus that causes COVID-19, called SARS-CoV-2, causes a respiratory illness where patients often complain of shortness of breath and chest tightness apart from fever, cough and fatigue amount other symptoms. Hemoglobin is a protein in the blood that carries oxygen to cells of the body. This process is very important to ensure the proper functioning of organs and tissues. Any deficiency of oxygen can lead to adverse effects on the different organ systems that keep our body functioning normally. If you are in the high-risk group (people with diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, etc.) or if you have home-quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19, it would be a good idea to have a pulse oximeter with you. If the SpO2 levels are dropping below 90 percent, you will need hospitalization and inhalational oxygen as part of your treatment.

Fortunately, the device gave an alarm
“I have been treated by my doctor for a year for my high blood pressure and have been taking medication for it. Since my old blood pressure monitor didn’t work properly, I replaced it by the Rossmax X5 Blood Pressure Monitor with the additional atrial fibrillation detection mode. Thanks to this additional alarm function, I was able to detect atrial fibrillation with every measurement. Therefore my medical doctor referred me to a cardiovascular specialist. After a comprehensive investigation, it was immediately clear that I need to be seriously treated with medication for atrial fibrillation. This finding was only discovered thanks to the new alarm function of this blood pressure monitor. I am so happy and grateful that it happened on time. I did not feel the atrial fibrillation myself. Fortunately, the old measuring device broke. Otherwise, I might have not recognized it early enough. I strongly advise everyone to get a blood pressure monitor with an alarm function that detects atrial fibrillation in early stage. The small price difference might save a life!“
