Need Assisted Breathing Equipment? We Have Nebulizers, CPAP Supplies, and So Much More!
A breathing machine is a piece of medical equipment that facilitates breathing when there are low oxygen levels within the blood stream. An Assisted Breathing machine aids the body to overcome the inability to breath normally, such as during respiratory failure or when someone has sleep apnea. Many people suffer from conditions such as asthma, lung cancer and chronic obstructive lung disease. Assisted Breathing machines are able to help you carry on a more normal life by aiding you as needed. From oxygen concentrators to ventilators, the type of breathing machine used varies according to the problem.
Various types of Assisted Breathing machines available at The Apothecary Shoppe Pharmacy are:
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that affects the airway. The airway becomes inflamed, narrow and swollen which produces extra mucus that makes it difficult to breathe. Asthma nebulizers help people who suffer from asthma by delivering liquid medication via a mist, which is inhaled into the lungs through this machine. Nebulizers are used in the home and are effective in delivering asthma medications to adults and children. Physicians write the prescription for the nebulizer machine, which usually is covered under insurance.
Sleep apnea is a common sleep condition in which the upper airway becomes blocked repeatedly during sleep, reducing or completely stopping airflow. This can be caused by a short neck, or an anatomically blocked airway caused by an enlarged pharynx. People with sleep apnea receive a prescription for their air pressure setting (which is determined during a visit to a sleep study lab) as well as a prescription for the specialized machine called a CPAP machine, and equipment used to deliver it. A CPAP machine draws air from the room, gently pressurizes it, then delivers it at a setting specific to your needs.
