Did you know what people with respiratory problems need breathing apparatus? The following are various breathing apparatus for those of you who have respiratory disorders.
1. Oxygen Tube and Regulator
Oxygen cylinders are patient aids that can convert water into oxygen. This medical device works through the patient’s nose or mouth. Oxygen cylinders usually have oxygen regulators that function to control the oxygen pressure given to patients.
2. Oxygen Concentrator
The oxygen concentrator is a device that works to produce pure oxygen from free air. This breathing apparatus is commonly used for people with respiratory disorders. There are two types of this tool, one you can carry anywhere (portable) or the other is immobile (static). This tool is sold in the pharmacy. You can choose the type according to your needs.
An oximeter is a breathing aid that serves to measure oxygen levels in the blood. It shapes like a watch. This tool is connected to sensors that function to measure oxygen levels in your finger.
CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. This tool is used for sleep apnea patients. People with sleep apnea have difficulty breathing during sleep due to blockages of the respiratory tract in the respiratory control centre. The CPAP device works by controlling the constant air pressure so it can keep the respiratory tract open.
5. Air cleaner
An air cleaner is used to improve air quality. You can place this tool at home or in the office. Usually, this tool is used if you have respiratory problems such as asthma, emphysema, or allergies.
