For individuals prone to infections and viruses or suffer from dry skin, a humidifier may alleviate your suffering. Humid air is proven to reduce the risk of infections, comfort dry sinuses, moisturize skin, and even decrease snoring.
For people suffering from allergies (and even people who do not have allergies), dust mites, pet odors, or pollen can easily cause respiratory distress. These common allergens can be removed by air purifiers, reducing the risk of bronchial asthma, sinus disease, and allergies.
Sometimes children’s allergy symptoms do not stop with a stuffy nose and watery eyes. If your child has allergic asthma, the most common form of asthma, exposure to allergens like pollen and mold can cause breathing passages to become swollen and inflamed. Childhood allergies that trigger asthma can lead to wheezing, shortness of breath, and difficulty breathing.
When that happens, your child’s doctor may suggest the use of a nebulizer. Our child friendly nebulizers encourage therapy use and make therapy more fun.
Your bedroom may be a major source of your sniffles. Dust mites are the most common cause of allergies from house dust. These tiny bugs live in pillows, mattresses, carpets, and upholstery, and even if you keep a sparkling clean home, they can still burrow their way into your bedding. To help keep the sniffles and allergy symptoms at bay, allergy control bedding can protect you against dust mites, mold, and mildew.
Pulse oximeters for home use are small, lightweight monitors that painlessly attach to a fingertip to monitor the amount of oxygen carried in the body. In people with COPD, pulse oximetry is useful as a tool for patients to use at home to assist with their management under physician guidance. Monitoring your oxygen saturation level will help you to adjust your oxygen flow at home, during exercise, and during social activities.
Portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is a portable device used to provide oxygen therapy to people requiring greater oxygen concentrations than the levels of ambient air. It is similar to a home oxygen concentrator, but is smaller and more mobile. The portable oxygen concentrator makes it easy for users to travel freely; they are small enough to fit in a car and many concentrators are now FAA-approved for use on airplanes.
