October is Healthy Lung Month, spotlighting the importance of protecting our lungs against disease, smoking, inactivity, mold, and air pollution. It's also a time to educate the public on respiratory diseases. Read on for some products that will help you live comfortably with respiratory problems!
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.
Nebulizers can be scary for a young child. Sitting still can create restlessness and nervous energy on its own, but the noisiness of the machine combined with having to wear a mask can be a frightening prospect for children. This is especially the case if no one else in your family or child's friend group has to use a nebulizer; an unfamiliar machine without a parent or sibling to model its use is alienating. Among the best ways to make the experience less intimidating for a child is to use a machine with a fun, inviting design like this Pediatric Fish nebulizer.
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!
Fall is peak ragweed season, which 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.
