What is an Oxygen Concentrator ?

Posted on Updated on

oc2

An oxygen concentrator is a device which concentrates the oxygen from a gas supply (typically ambient air) to supply an oxygen enriched gas mixture. Oxygen concentrators typically use pressure swing adsorption technology and are used very widely for oxygen provision in healthcare applications, especially where liquid or pressurised oxygen is too dangerous or inconvenient, such as in homes. Number of companies have produced portable oxygen concentrators. Typically, these devices produce one to five litres per minute of oxygen .

Proper Breathing – POWERbreathe Can Help

Posted on Updated on

Your primary breathing muscle is your diaphragm; a dome shaped thin sheet of muscle separating your rib cage from your abdomen. If you do already have a good breathing technique it can often go awry when you start exercising as you demand more air and your breathing increases to compensate. This is when your breathing technique can change from good diaphragmatic breathing to reverse breathing i.e. pulling in your tummy as you breathe in and letting your tummy go as you breathe out. Because your diaphragm is a muscle, you can train it like any other muscle to become stronger and helping you retain that good diaphragmatic breathing even when pushed to your limit. POWERbreathe targets your inspiratory muscles – not only your diaphragm but also your intercostal muscles, the tiny muscles in between your ribs, which are recruited during a slightly forced respiration.

What is Sleep Apnea ?

Posted on Updated on

Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition. Sleep apnea causes a number of health problems such as stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other serious issues. If left untreated, sleep apnea can increase a person’s chance of getting heart disease by as much as 300%! Seeking treatment for sleep apnea should be a top priority for any diagnosed with the disorder, or if you suspect you may have it. Outside of these terrible health effects, sleep apnea severely disrupts your sleep. On an average night, a person with sleep apnea can suffer up to 60 pauses in breathing every hour. This puts a considerable strain on the body: the heart, the circulatory system, the lungs, the brain — really, everything. What’s even worse — if left untreated, the complications that arise from sleep apnea can lead to death.

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and are looking for information about the condition or equipment.

Sleep Apnea is Not Just Snoring

Posted on Updated on

For many, snoring may lead to a diagnosis of Sleep Apnea. But outside of the world of Sleep Apnea many people take snoring lightly. It is possible for some, snoring isn’t related to Sleep Apnea. It is still best to ask your doctor about getting tested. Snoring that is loud or involves choking or gasping during sleep should be looked into immediately. This also goes the other way, many people believe because they don’t snore ( or haven’t been known to ) they don’t have Sleep Apnea. Not snoring does not mean you are Sleep Apnea free. Sleep is vital to a healthy life, if you or a loved one suspects they might have Sleep Apnea, take it seriously and talk to a doctor about a sleep study.

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and are looking for information about the condition or equipment.

CPAP

Posted on Updated on

ICON- image 2

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the use of continuous positive pressure to maintain a continuous level of positive airway pressure in a spontaneously breathing patient. It is functionally similar to positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP), except that PEEP is an applied pressure against exhalation and CPAP is a pressure applied by a constant flow. The ventilator does not cycle during CPAP, no additional pressure above the level of CPAP is provided, and patients must initiate all of their breaths. Nasal CPAP is frequently used in neonates, though its use is controversial. Studies have shown nasal CPAP reduces ventilator time but an increased occurrence of pneumothorax was also prevalent.
As a treatment or therapy, CPAP uses mild air pressure to keep an airway open. CPAP typically is used for people who have breathing problems, such as sleep apnea.

CPAP also may be used to treat preterm infants whose lungs have not yet fully developed. For example, physicians may use CPAP in infants with respiratory distress syndrome. It is associated with a decrease in the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. In some preterm infants whose lungs haven’t fully developed, CPAP improves survival and decreases the need for steroid treatment for their lungs.
CPAP at home utilizes machines specifically designed to deliver a constant flow or pressure. Some CPAP machines have other features as well, such as heated humidifiers. CPAP is the most effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, in which the mild pressure from CPAP prevents the airway from collapsing or becoming blocked.
