We love getting new products here at LPT Medical. The more oxygen concentrators we can offer oxygen patients, the more options they have to live life on their own terms without being defined by their disease. We’re happy to say that our latest pulse flow portable oxygen concentrator, the Caire Freestyle Comfort, does just that!
One of the main priorities in COPD treatment is keeping symptoms of the disease—such as breathlessness, coughing, and excess mucus—under control. However, this isn't always an easy thing to do, and COPD symptoms can get worse without much warning, even when you do everything right.
It’s a new year and a new decade which means it’s time to start working on those resolutions you’ve been planning in 2019. For some of us, that means getting to the gym more often or creating a more solidified financial plan. But if you suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), treating your condition might be at the core of your resolutions.
COPD is serious, chronic, and life-threatening disease, but it doesn't always look that way. Many people with COPD don't appear to be as sick as they are, and the worst aspects of the disease are not always visible on the outside.
We did it! We made it through another year!
COPD and other respiratory diseases often come with health complications, both big and small. One of the more serious complications of COPD is acute respiratory failure, a medical emergency that occurs when you experience a sudden and serious drop in lung function.
With all the new portable oxygen concentrators releasing each year, it can be really difficult to keep up with everything that’s going on. Doing a web search may help you out a bit, but it will likely raise more questions than it will answer. This is why we’ve taken the time to put together guides like this one to help you learn about the best portable concentrators of the new year.
Oxygen concentrators are a lifeline for many respiratory patients. Those suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or cystic fibrosis (CF) can experience significant relief from symptoms like coughing, wheezing, chest pain, and shortness of breath by using supplemental medical oxygen and following a strict diet and exercise routine.
Daily medications are a primary life-line for people with COPD, and a necessary part of life for people with asthma and other respiratory diseases. In fact, most COPD patients have to follow a strict treatment regimen and take several different medications every day just to keep their symptoms under control.
If you or someone you love has COPD, then you might have heard about a treatment known as pulmonary rehabilitation. This treatment is essentially a breathing and exercise training program specifically designed for people with COPD and other respiratory problems that make it difficult to breathe.
