More and more people know about home ventilators, and some people have misconceptions about the use of home ventilators, and worry about whether long-term use will cause harm to the body. Home ventilators are currently divided into two categories, one is the home sleep ventilator, this ventilator is used for sleep snoring, sleep apnea treatment; another is the home lung disease ventilator, this ventilator is used for chronic obstructive pulmonary, respiratory failure, cardiopulmonary function problems of patients, can also be used for acromegaly, obesity hypoventilation. Today we have an understanding of the main groups of people who use home ventilators, which are mainly used for two main groups of people.
One Category Is Patients With Sleep Apnea Syndrome
Snoring is what we usually call snoring, commonly known as snoring, is a widespread sleep phenomenon, and most people feel that snoring is commonplace. In fact, severe snoring can cause recurrent upper airway obstruction during sleep, resulting in sleep apnea syndrome (OSA).
In medical terms, it refers to obstructive sleep apnea, which is a more common sleep-related respiratory disease in clinical practice. It is a clinical syndrome of recurrent apnea or hypoventilation during sleep state mainly caused by obstruction, resulting in hypoxemia, hypercapnia and sleep disruption, thus causing a series of pathophysiological changes in the organism.
✔ Daytime symptoms such as drowsiness, sleepiness, and lack of concentration
✔ At night, there may be symptoms such as sleep snoring, apnea, abnormal sleep behavior, etc.
✔ In addition to this, hypertension, coronary heart disease, arrhythmia, ischemic or hemorrhagic cerebrovascular disease may also be present.
If you have the above phenomena, it is recommended to go to the hospital respiratory department or ENT department for sleep monitoring examination. If snoring is serious at night with intermittent apnea or frequent waking, polysomnography monitoring can be performed at the hospital. The type and severity of apnea vary from patient to patient, and the type of ventilator and the pressure set are also different. If some patients have arrhythmias and heart failure, the optional models are also different. It is recommended that before choosing a home ventilator, patients should go to the hospital for relevant examinations to determine the required therapeutic pressure range before choosing according to medical advice.
Another Category Is The Early And Stable Stage Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Patients with chronic respiratory failure, emphysema, motor neuron disease, etc.
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a common lung disease, mainly including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. As the disease progresses, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease can cause patients to have difficulty breathing. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease can cause patients to develop clinical manifestations such as coughing, coughing up sputum, increased respiratory infections and shortness of breath, as well as wheezing cold symptoms in the chest during activity. Patients with milder disease have milder symptoms, and if the disease progressively worsens, patients' symptoms will become more and more severe over time, affecting normal life.
- Patients with lung diseases are inseparable from home ventilators, such as pulmonary heart disease, emphysema, asthma, etc. Patients with breathing difficulties need our treatment, especially the use of bi-level ventilators is very good to improve the patient's heart and lung function and reduce heart failure. Some elderly people as the elderly health care is very necessary, many elderly people at home are combined with our ventilator and oxygen machine use, the effect is the best.
- Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are also very much needed. Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are the diseases with the highest rate of sudden death, and most of the patients will also have apnea, which can be dangerous if they cannot be prevented and treated in time. The use of is to ensure that we have sufficient oxygen in the body, improve our night ventilation, can play a good auxiliary treatment effect, now many hospitals in the patient is recommended to use home ventilator to ensure the health of the body.
