  • Is the Transcend Portable Auto CPAP Machine Right for You?

    You shouldn't be suffering with sleep apnea, just because you don't want to be burdened by a machine designed to help you breathe while you sleep. Sleep apnea has some severe effects on you while you are awake – headaches, fatigue and a lowered immune system from not getting enough oxygen while you're sleeping, as well as being unable to stay in a deep level of sleep. Other long term effects are even more serious – a much higher risk of heart failure, stroke and heart attacks.

    There is one more reason you shouldn't be intimidated by using a CPAP machine – the new smallest, quietest, most portable and smartest of the Auto CPAP machines – the Transcend Auto. This amazing new CPAP technology features an easier way to record your breath rates, as well as makes using a CPAP machine much more easy to get used to.

  • Can EPOC Cause Weight Loss?

    Your metabolism describes how your body uses energy to do everything it needs to do to stay alive, and function to keep us healthy. The energy is burned in the form of calories. Your metabolic rate is the rate at which your body burns calories.

    You might have heard some people say that they have a "fast metabolism", and they can eat a lot without gaining weight. Someone might also have a slow metabolism, and gain weight easily. This can be the case for different people, but your metabolic rate can change. You can in fact speed up your metabolism with certain types of exercise.

    Your metabolic rate actually changes throughout the day, depending on the foods you eat, what time of the day it is and your physical activity. You can even burn more calories for hours after your workout, in a process called “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption”, which can go on usually for up to 13 hours post workout.

  • February is American Heart Health Month

    February isn't just all about red plastic heart decorations for Valentines Day. It's also a great month to raise awareness about heart health and prevent heart disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the number one leading cause of death in Americans. That's more deaths than those caused by cancer, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    February means cold weather for many in the US, and that means many people stay indoors, get less physical activity, and we tend to want to eat more of the things that aren't exactly healthy for us. Chocolate and wine are good for you in moderation (we'll tell you more about that!), but many of the "comfort foods" we tend to gravitate toward can be very unhealthy, and bad for our hearts.

  • Recap of the COPD Community Education Workshop in Denver

    On September 3, 2014, a hundred plus attendees came to the Sheraton Downtown Denver to learn about wellness and COPD. This was also an entertaining and fun event, not just an educational one, with live music and fun ways to exercise. People who were affected by COPD in many different ways, patients, family members of patients and caregivers in the community came to learn about COPD.

    This was actually a precursor event to the gathering of the American Association for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) conference, which happens each year. However, this was the first time that patients were able to come to a session of this conference.

    The AACVPR is made up of the people who work in cardiac and pulmonary rehabs in the United States, and in other countries. The COPD Community Education Workshop was put on by the COPD Foundation, Colorado's Pulmonary Education Program (PEP) Pulmonary Rehab centers, Denver-area Pulmonary Rehab programs and the AACVPR.

  • National Blood Donor Month – FAQs About Donating Blood

    Blood donations from strangers have saved the lives of many people every year. You might hear about certain times of year being the most important times to give blood, most specifically in the summer, and the middle of winter. During the winter, less people are likely to give blood because of the cold weather.

    During the summer, people are more likely to get injured playing sports or doing things outside, so they are more likely to need an emergency blood transfusion. Even though January is National Blood Donor Month, blood donations are highly necessary all year long.

    If you are considering giving blood for any reason, you should check with your doctor first if you have any health issues. You might also have some questions, so feel free to ask professional at the American Red Cross, or your doctor. Here are some of the more frequently asked questions and their answers.

  • Introducing the InovaLabs Lifechoice AcitivOx 4 Liter Pro

    Staying active is an essential part of growing older. As you age, your body may start to feel a little less energetic and mobile.

  • Getting Financed for the Respironics SimplyFlo

    The SimplyGo holds court as the smallest and lightest stationary oxygen concentrator on the market today. It's stationary because it can only run on AC power and does not take batteries, but it is the size and weight of many of the mid-sized portable models! It has 1 and 2 LPM (liters per minute) continuous flow settings and is very portable and energy efficient.

    Why would an oxygen therapy patient want the SimplyFlo?

    First, you have to make sure it will cover your oxygen therapy needs. If you need more than 2 LPM of continuous flow oxygen, then the SimplyFlo is not for you. If you are prescribed 1 LPM or 2 LPM, then it will meet your oxygen needs.
