  • The Quietest of the Quiet – Whisper Quiet Oxygen Concentrators

    One of the main things many people consider when purchasing an oxygen concentrator, is how much noise it will make. You don't want to bother anyone or have your oxygen concentrator bother you while you are trying to do things like watch TV, read a book, have a conversation with someone, or sleep if you need to use your oxygen concentrator while you sleep.

    For this reason, we've rounded up user reviews of the extraordinarily quiet stationary and portable oxygen concentrators on the market right now. Naturally, many of the bigger stationary oxygen concentrators will be louder than the smaller ones, but the larger ones offer a higher dose of oxygen that some people require.

    You should never let the noise level bother if you need a higher dose of oxygen – getting the among you need is much more important than the noise level. These are the quietest oxygen concentrators in their size categories and dosage ranges.

  • November is National Diabetes Month

    Type 2 Diabetes has a stigma attached to it. A common myth about diabetes, is that its mainly brought on by eating too much sugar and unhealthy foods, and by being overweight. Type 2 Diabetes, of course, is the type that develops over time because of many health factors, but being overweight doesn't actually have much to do with it. You can be thin and look otherwise "physically fit" and still get diabetes.

It's important to stay educated about diseases like this, because they can happen to almost anyone who isn't closely caring for their health in certain ways.

  • World Pneumonia Day - November 12th, 2014

    World pneumonia day may have come and gone, but it's something that should definitely be talked about. During the winter months, pneumonia can be a really danger to anyone, but especially to those with compromised immune systems and chronic lung diseases. November 12th is World Pneumonia Day, as named by the American Lung Association. Pneumonia is actually one of the leading causes of death worldwide, according to the American Lung Association.

    If you are over the age of 55 or have a chronic lung disease, it's recommended that you get a pneumonia vaccine. There are two types of pneumococcal vaccines. Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) is the most common, and given to adults between the ages of 19 and 64 with medical conditions, like asthma, COPD and certain kidney diseases. You would only need to get it every 5 years if your doctor sees the need for it.

  • Football Legend Joe Namath Helps Promote Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy and what does it have to do with football legend Joe Namath?

    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, also known as HBOT, is a type of oxygen therapy where the patient goes into a chamber or pressurized room, to breathe in and come in contact with pure oxygen. HBOT has undergone many studies to make sure it doesn't do more harm than good, and it has been found to even make some huge improvements in health over a small period of time.

    It was most widely used for decompression sickness, which can happen to SCUBA divers. It's been known to heal infections and lesions that won't heal properly, caused by diabetes or radiation therapy. In an HBOT chamber, the air pressure is raised to three times what it would be normally, allowing your lungs to bring in much more oxygen? The amount of oxygen in your body will then jump to three times as much, which helps wounds to heal, among other amazing health effects.

  • Flu Season - Time to Get Vaccinated

    Flu season generally runs from October and even as late as May, with a peak in January and February. The flu can be more dangerous for certain groups of people, including the very young, the elderly, and those with chronic lung diseases like asthma and COPD. Since we are already a month into flu season, hopefully you will get yours soon if you haven't already!

    The flu shot takes around 2 weeks to go into effect, to protect you from the common strains that will be most likely to go around this season. It doesn't protect against every strain, because that would be virtually impossible. There are many strains that will be less common that the flu shot for a given year will not guard against. However, once you've gone 2 weeks after your flu shot, you will be vaccinated against the most common strains for that flu season, and it's recommended by health professionals that you get one.

  • October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – What You Should Know

    Every October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and you'll likely see many things in stores have either turned pink, or now have pink labels to raise money and awareness for this dangerous disease. It's unfortunate that some stores and companies will try to capitalize on this disease, and say that most of the proceeds go to organizations like the Susan G. Komen foundation, when all of the proceeds go back into the company. To make sure your money is going to breast cancer research, you can always donate to the National Breast Cancer Foundation via their website at NationalBreastCancer.org.

    Breast cancer is one of the more prevalent types of cancer among women, the only other type of cancer that is more prevalent is lung cancer. According to BreastCancer.org, 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in her life – that's a little over 12%. Invasive breast cancer is the most dangerous, because it can quickly spread from the breast to the healthy tissue in the surrounding areas through the blood and lymphatic system. The stages of breast cancer of I through IV are invasive.

  • The Do's and Don'ts of Oxygen Concentrators

    Once you've selected your portable or stationary oxygen concentrator, there are a few safety and maintenance tips you should be aware of. The following is a list of some of the most important do's and don'ts you'll want to keep in mind. Of course, this is just a reference and you shouldn't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have!


     

    DO...

    1. DO Change the Filter Yearly

    Many concentrators have what's called a "gross particle filter" that will need to be changed once a year on average. After a year, the filter will start to get worn out and won't be able to do its job properly. The gross particle filter is an imperative function within the oxygen concentrator; it catches the dirt, dust, and other particles so you won't be breathing in unclean oxygen. Keeping your filter clean will also help ensure these particles won't start to jam up the inner workings of the concentrator.
