The exhibiting company said that the drug is registered in the country by the Ministry of Health and Prevention and is available in pharmacies and its dispensing requires a prescription from a specialist doctor.

He added that one of the companies is for the first time offering an application that helps patients with dizziness to get rid of sudden symptoms by making some movements such as physical therapy, which is a very excellent application for patients with dizziness.


His Excellency Dr. Hussein Al-Rand said that the “Help Me Listen” initiative for hearing-impaired children, which was launched in 2017 as part of the Year of Giving initiatives, provided treatment for the hearing impaired to 75 children of different nationalities residing in the country with the aim of enhancing their toxic abilities to communicate and reintegrate them into society, which will contribute to achieving the sustainable development of the country

Dr. Ahmed Al-Emadi, Consultant and Head of the Ear, Nose and Throat Pastor at Al-Baraha Hospital, said that the health authorities are in the process of conducting cochlear implants for the hearing impaired from both sides, especially after international scientific studies and research have shown that cochlear implantation is better and contributes to restoring the child to his normal position within a shorter period of time.

He said in European countries, the process of implantation is still carried out in one side due to the high cost, pointing out that a single cochlear implant costs between 150-170 thousand dirhams, pointing out that the reasons for children’s hearing loss are often genetic or as a result of the mother’s infection with infections during pregnancy, in addition to the marriage of relatives, as it was noted that the rate of infection in Western and European countries is less than what is found in the Arab countries.

He pointed out that the most common nasal diseases in the country are sensory and sinuses, pointing out that out of every 10 patients, 7 of them suffer from either allergies or sinuses.
