People with respiratory disorders such as asthma, pulmonary disease, and emphysema need a variety of tools so they can breathe well and carry out their daily activities. Rheneus Lupprians is an expedition service that can guide you to medical device installation such as breathing apparatus. What is needed by people with certain respiratory problems and how does it work?
Here are various kinds of breathing aids for those who have respiratory disorders.
1. Oxygen Cylinders and regulators
Oxygen Cylinder can convert water to oxygen. Oxygen flow is channeled through the respiratory tract of the patient, can be through the nose or mouth of the patient.
Oxygen cylinders also usually have oxygen regulators. Oxygen regulator is a tool that functions to control the oxygen pressure given to patients. The reason is that oxygen from the cylinder has high pressure so that it needs to be set so it will be safe for patients.
2. Portable oxygen cylinder
Different from large size oxygen cylinders, portable oxygen is packaged in a small tube. Oxygen is available in the form of gas. Portable oxygen is sold freely so you can buy it at the pharmacy or the nearest medical shop. This kind of oxygen is easily taken anywhere.
3. Oxygen concentrator
An oxygen concentrator is a tool that works to produce pure oxygen from free air. This breathing apparatus is usually used for people with respiratory disorders.
This tool is used to increase oxygen levels in the blood.
How does the device work? This tool takes free air from the surrounding environment and separates nitrogen or other substances from the air using an existing filter or filter. Then, pure oxygen can be channeled through the patient’s respiratory tract.
This tool is divided into two, which can carry anywhere (portable) or that is designed cant be moved (static). This tool is already widely sold outside. You can choose the type according to your needs.
An oximeter is a breathing aid that serves to measure the levels of oxygen in the blood. The shape is like a watch. This tool is equipped with sensors that function to measure the oxygen levels in your fingers.
Oxygen levels or saturation oxygen levels in the blood will immediately appear on this screen, exactly as you see the figure on the watch.
A nebulizer is a tool that serves to change asthma medication in the form of liquid into gas. This gas will be channeled through the respiratory tract. In other words, this tool can fire directly through the target, the lungs. Of course, this causes the effects to be faster.
