COPD Awareness Month: Our Top Respiratory Products for Managing Lung Health

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive disease that makes breathing difficult and gets worse over time. COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms. Rates of respiratory issues increase during the fall and even winter thanks to widespread allergies like ragweed and the cold, dry air. This is also the time of year when people begin spending more time indoors around other people, making it easier to transmit respiratory viruses. Read on to learn about some of our top respiratory care products that can improve your COPD outcomes!

1. Schuco S5000 Nebulizer Compressor Machine

When dealing with a chronic respiratory illness, it's vital to have a proper delivery system for medications. One of the most common is the nebulizer, which provides medication in the form of an aerosol mist for inhalation. The Schuco S5000 nebulizer features a compact, portable design and delivers your medication quickly and efficiently thanks to a high compressor operating flow rate and pressure level. It's easy to operate and clean, and its 3.5 pound weight makes it easily portable for travel. Available for an affordable price, this nebulizer also includes a full kit containing everything you need to get started using it, including over 6 feet of tubing and 5 extra compressor filters.

2. Respironics SideStream Reusable Nebulizer Mouthpiece

Don't forget the accessories for your nebulizer! The Respironics SideStream Reusable Nebulizer Mouthpiece delivers faster treatment times (delivers 2-1/2mL of drug output within 7 min). The reusable Sidestream is highly efficient (80% of drug output volume is below 5 microns in size), offering optimal patient care with minimal administrative effort. It can be used for 6 months before replacing. 

3. Acapella Choice Vibratory PEP Therapy Device

One of the most common symptoms of chronic respiratory conditions is the buildup of mucus lining the airways and even the lungs, which can lead to a host of health problems. Excessive secretions in those with asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and other illnesses can cause inflammation, narrowing, and blocking of the airways, infections, pulmonary hypertension, and a host of other debilitating problems. One of the most effective ways to fight this is through Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP), a method to mobilize secretions via air pressure that pushes mucus out while preventing airways from closing. The Acapella Choice device combines PEP with airway vibrations to improve clearance of secretions. It's easier to take than chest physiotherapy (CPT) and works in about half the time, while its convenient, portable size means you can get the benefit of this therapy anywhere!

4. CAIRE Freestyle Comfort Portable Oxygen Concentrator

Peak ragweed season can affect respiratory conditions beyond asthma: people with COPD also have difficulties with the season that can quickly worsen an already serious disease. If you have COPD and you spend anytime traveling or just outdoors in the fall, you'll want a dependable, portable oxygen concentrator like the CAIRE Freestyle Comfort. Weighing only 5 pounds and featuring an ergonomic design that rests naturally against your body, the Freestyle Comfort is a lightweight and wearable oxygen solution. Its simple, one-touch operation and low, 43 dBA operating volume maximize ease of use, while its multi-setting output rate and multiple rechargeable battery options allow for a versatile, powerful oxygen profile. Charts UltraSense technology automatically senses your breathing rate and adjusts to match it. When you need to breathe comfortably on the go, turn to the CAIRE Freestyle Comfort.
