Many people who suffer from asthma, bronchitis, COPD, or sleep apnea often have trouble breathing. More and more, it is visible in more patients than is asthma, chronic bronchitis, or COPD. But often, the air quality is so poor that it can be easily irritated by smoke, dust, pollen, other irritants & pollutants, without difficulty breathing.
In such cases, people often depend on an effective CPAP machine. But the danger is in choosing the right CPAP machine. Often the machine delivers exactly the right amount of air pressure, but delivers not enough air to the user. More than half of patients (500 million) with sleep apnea and more than half of patients with chronic bronchitis (COPD) have difficulty sleeping.
And the news gets even scarier. Though the CPAP device might work for the majority of patients with sleep apnea & chronic bronchitis, even a perfect night’s sleep can be elusive for patients with COPD. In fact, if the CPAP delivery is less than 90% of delivery at nights, or if breathing occurs only half the hours of the night, then COPD is likely.
In such cases, a CPAP machine with a humidifier will often be preferred by patients. A humidifier CR returns moisture to the air delivered by the CPAP.
Humidifiers are also utilized for sleep apnea patients, especially with the installation of CPAP machines. The CR delivers moisture to the air delivered by the machine, helping alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms of sleep apnea.
Likewise, moistening the air delivered by the CPAP unit is beneficial for patients with COPD. The moist air produced by the humidifier CR helps deliver a non-irritating air flow.
While the benefits of humidifiers and CPAP machines are widely known, however, even the simpler machines can still pose a threat to common day-to-day activities for both customers and CPAP delivery personnel.
In a recent healthcare survey, it was estimated that Approximately 60 % of respiratory therapists hold negative feelings about CPAP machines.
This negative feeling toward CPAP machines is rooted in the notion that CPAP machines are machinery which the fancy machines have lost human touch, and that there is no human touch when the machine is sick.
However, in spite of these differences, the need for a CPAP machine is one that cannot be ignored. Without a CPAP, a patient has only the dim outline of a life.
It is now time to break out of this negative mindset. Let’s start a journey toward a moreulation of CPAP machines. Following in the footsteps of specialists who are focused on building better patient experience,Personally efficient, and facilitating recovery, we will strive to make better machines that will provide a break from the routine.
Though there is not a standard or single definition for a good CPAP machine, there are several things you need to consider before buying a CPAP machine.
1. Consider the size of the room you’ll be using the CPAP machine in. Increasing the amount of air currently held in the machine will result in better patient results.
2. Consider how many CPAP masks you will be using. Choosing from a variety of styles and sizes will allow you to use the machine according to your needs.
3. Consider the user weight, size, and battery life.
4. Consider the humidifier.
5. Ask your restore about cooling fans and their location.
6. Factory reset and crew are important.
7. Limit the use of CPAP-associated products, like humidifiers and masks.
8. Try to find reviews online.
