Empowering Men’s Health: In Conversation With an Egyptian Anesthesia and Critical Care Consultant
<p>International Men&#8217;s Health Week is a global initiative promoting well-being and highlighting the importance of prioritizing physical and mental health. Men&#8217;s health is a crucial topic that directly impacts individuals, loved ones, communities, and society.&nbsp;</p> <p>In this blog, we spoke to TrueProfile.io Member Dr. Mohamed Hassan Badawy, who is an Anesthesia and Critical Care Consultant at the Dubai Health Authority. Dr. Badawy addresses key challenges and practical tips for men to lead their best lives.&nbsp;</p> <h2>We&#8217;d love to get to know you better! Could you share a little bit about yourself with our readers?</h2> <p>My name is Dr. Mohamed Hassan Badawy, and I&#8217;m an anesthesia and critical care consultant, originally from Egypt, and working in the United Arab Emirates since 2019.&nbsp;</p> <p>With a total experience of 19 years across three countries, including Oman, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates, I have gained valuable knowledge in various aspects of anesthesia and critical care. Working in multiple countries has given me a diverse perspective and a deep understanding of different healthcare systems and practices.</p> <h2>From your experience, would you encourage healthcare professionals to consider job opportunities overseas?</h2> <p>Absolutely. Each country has its own criteria and cultural differences in dealing with patients. Working in different countries provides valuable experience in managing various cases and understanding different levels of education and professionalism. </p> <p>In the United Arab Emirates, for example, you can gain experience from doctors of different nationalities, which is very beneficial. I highly recommend gaining experience from multiple countries as it broadens your perspective and enhances your skills.</p> <h2>In your opinion, what is the biggest challenge when it comes men&#8217;s health?&nbsp;</h2> <p>I believe the main obstacle is the misconception of not having enough time, which is not true. Life is valuable, and it is essential to make time for improving your health. By doing so, you not only improve your own well-being but also that of your family and work.&nbsp;</p> <p>Another challenge for men&#8217;s health is the resistance to change. If someone is advised to lose weight, for example, they may dismiss it and claim contentment with their current state.</p> <p>Some men may not realize they have a health issue because they haven&#8217;t visited a doctor or they believe everything is fine. People assume they don&#8217;t need to invest time or money in regular check-ups. It&#8217;s crucial to highlight this point because people may think everything is fine when, in reality, it may not be. Even athletes or individuals engaged in physical activities may overlook problems and continue to endure pain without seeking medical attention.</p> <p>So, these factors of not having time, resistance to change, and assuming everything is fine contribute to the main challenges a lot of men face today.</p> <h2>What are some lifestyle practices that have positively impacted your overall well-being?</h2> <p>Exercise and proper training are crucial. Additionally, it&#8217;s important to minimize stress as much as possible.&nbsp;</p> <h2>How do you find harmony between work and personal life while pursuing a demanding career?</h2> <p>It&#8217;s really important for me to establish a clear separation between my work and home life. When I&#8217;m at work, my focus is solely on my professional goals and giving my maximum effort. However, once I leave the workplace, I make a conscious effort to detach myself completely and prioritize spending quality time with my family. Maintaining this healthy separation between work and personal life is key.</p> <h2>Why did you become a TrueProfile.io Member?</h2> <p>TrueProfile.io was very useful when I wanted to transfer my DataFlow reports and keep them for a longer period of time.&nbsp;</p> <h2>Conclusion</h2> <p>Looking to work abroad just like Dr. Badawy?
