Sleep Therapy

An estimated 15 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. This condition can cause people to snore and wake up frequently throughout the night, and even be fatal in serious instances. Sleep therapy products such as CPAP or BiPAP machines can be prescribed after a sleep study to help people fight the symptoms of sleep apnea and finally get a good nightís rest. The family members of patients will also appreciate not being kept up by their snoring.

Oxygen Concentrators

Not being able to get enough oxygen into your lungs is a serious problem for people suffering from chronic respiratory problems. Doctors often prescribe the use of oxygen concentrators for people with these conditions. These units convert air into pure oxygen by removing the nitrogen, providing an effective solution to increase oxygen levels for respiratory patients.

Oxygen Home Fill

When a person has a large oxygen concentrator in their home, they need to have an oxygen cylinder that is filled in order to be used. Taking these units into a store to be refilled is time-consuming and costly. Many manufacturers offer oxygen home fill systems that allow a person to refill their cylinder without having to leave their house. Itís important to make sure that your unit allows oxygen home fills before making any purchase.

Suction Machines

Suction machines are also known as aspirators and are used to help clear unwanted secretions from a personís airways. This can include removing excess mucus along with blood, bile or saliva. Suction machines are frequently used to help patients who have recently received a tracheotomy, or elderly patients with upper respiratory infections who are unable to cough and remove mucus stuck in their throats or lungs.

Pulse Oximeters

Itís important for caregivers to know the oxygen levels in the bloodstreams of patients dealing with respiratory issues or recovering from illnesses such as heart attacks. Instead of having to take a blood sample from a patient, caregivers can accomplish this by using pulse oximeters. These machines rest on the fingertips of patients and can quickly give accurate readings of a personís oxygen saturation levels along with the blood volume in their skin.

CPAP Tubing

CPAP tubing helps to get a steady flow of air from a CPAP machine to the mask that is worn by a sleep apnea sufferer. Some people have issues with excess moisture forming in the tubing of a difference in the temperature in the unitís humidifier and the ambient temperature in the room. Special climate controlled CPAP tubing can help to alleviate these problems and allow people to enjoy comfortable and uninterrupted sleep.
