Navigating Impact of Measles
Impact of Measles

As the world faces a concerning resurgence of measles cases, it is crucial to delve into the specific health implications, particularly concerning respiratory well-being. Measles, a highly contagious viral infection, not only affects various systems within the body but can profoundly impact respiratory health. In this blog post, WONACE Medical Supply explores the respiratory implications of measles and how our durable medical and equipment store is poised to support individuals and healthcare providers safeguard respiratory health during these challenging times.

Understanding Measles and Respiratory Impact

Measles is known for its characteristic symptoms such as fever, rash, and cough. However, the respiratory system bears a significant brunt of the infection. Measles can lead to severe respiratory complications, ranging from a persistent cough to more serious issues like pneumonia and bronchitis.


Respiratory Complications Associated with Measles

  1. Cough and Shortness of Breath: Measles can cause a persistent cough and shortness of breath, affecting the overall respiratory function of an individual.

  2. Pneumonia: One of the most serious complications, measles-associated pneumonia can lead to severe respiratory distress and is a primary cause of measles-related mortality.

  3. Bronchitis: Inflammation of the bronchial tubes can occur, resulting in symptoms such as wheezing and difficulty breathing.

The Role of Durable Medical Equipment in Measles Care

WONACE Medical Supply recognizes the critical need for durable medical equipment to support individuals affected by measles, especially those experiencing respiratory complications. Our range of respiratory care equipment includes:

Nebulizers: Essential for delivering medication directly to the lungs, nebulizers can provide relief for respiratory symptoms associated with measles.


Oxygen Concentrators:  In severe cases, where respiratory distress is prominent, oxygen concentrators can be crucial in ensuring an adequate and consistent oxygen supply.

Pulse Oximeters: Monitoring oxygen saturation levels is essential during measles recovery. Pulse oximeters from WONACE Medical Supply offer accurate readings for effective respiratory management.


Telemedicine Solutions for Respiratory Consultations

In the era of telemedicine, WONACE is committed to facilitating remote consultations for individuals experiencing respiratory symptoms due to measles.

Prevention remains the cornerstone of respiratory health amid a measles outbreak. WONACE advocates for:

  1. Measles Vaccination: Encouraging individuals to get vaccinated not only prevents measles but also reduces the risk of associated respiratory complications.

  2. Community Education: Empowering communities with information about measles, its symptoms, and the importance of timely vaccination can contribute to respiratory health on a broader scale.
