Jai Medical Systems does it again!

Have you scheduled your Annual Physical?

It is important to see your Primary Care Provider (PCP) at least once a year for your Annual Physical. This yearly “check-in” with your PCP enables your provider to get a sense of your overall health, so that they can help you create “health goals” to work towards, based on your risk factors, lab results, and vital signs. Also, as a member of Jai Medical Systems, after you receive your annual physical, you will earn a Healthy Reward! To schedule your Annual Physical today, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-888-JAI-1999.

Flu Season is right around the corner!

Influenza or “the Flu” is an illness caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. The Flu can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The CDC recommends a Flu vaccine as the first and most important step towards keeping your family protected from the virus. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. Contact your PCP today to schedule your appointment to get the Flu vaccine.


Asthma Management

Asthma is a chronic disease that can affect your airways. While there is no “cure” for asthma, there are ways that you can manage this disease.

  1. Identify and Avoid Triggers, such as smoke, pollen, dust, mold, changes in the weather, and stress.
  2. Take your medication, as prescribed. Your PCP may prescribe a “controller” inhaler for daily use, and a “rescue” inhaler for quick relief situations. It is important that you are following the prescribed use for your inhaler.
  3. Follow your PCP’s Asthma Action Plan.
  4. Get a Flu vaccine annually.

Controlling Your Blood Pressure

Did you know that it is important to check your blood pressure regularly? It is even more important to check your pressure if you have been diagnosed with High Blood Pressure also known as “Hypertension.” Individuals who have Hypertension should monitor their blood pressure at least twice a day with a blood pressure device; once in the morning after taking any prescribed medication and again in the evening.

In order to lower or “control” your blood pressure, your PCP may prescribe a daily medication for you to take. It is important for you to take the medication, as prescribed, and to visit your PCP prior to running out of your prescribed medication.

In addition, there are simple steps that you can take today that will help you in your journey to control your blood pressure, including:

  1. Diet. Be sure to include fresh fruit and vegetables. If you do not have access to fresh fruit and vegetables, search for frozen options and/or “low to no sodium” canned options.
  2. Exercise. It is recommended that adults exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. Be sure to take 30 minutes out of your day to go for a brisk walk, jog, play a sport, or do strength training such as weight lifting.
  3. Do not smoke. If you currently smoke, it is important to quit smoking today. For information or assistance with quitting for good, please contact the Maryland Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW.
