On tropical medical mission trips, the use of fans, if available and working, accomplishes at least 3 things:

1. Lessens the distraction to patients caused by sweat dripping from your face.
2. Decreases the diagnosis of asthma because listening for wheezing becomes, well, impossible.
3. Causes the impromptu transformation of nearby objects into paperweights for medical records and other papers blown onto the floor.

So thankful for fans!
