The winter months can be dangerous for patients with chronic respiratory diseases. Rates of respiratory illnesses increase during the winter thanks to people spending more time indoors around other people, making virus transmission easier. The cold, dry air may weaken resistance, as well. This creates a greater need for respiratory therapy. Read on to learn about some of our top respiratory care products!
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.
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.
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!
