  • My Journey with COPD: Advocacy and Empowerment

    My Journey with COPD: Advocacy and Empowerment
    by Edna Fiore

    Dr. Thomas L. Petty began a concerted effort to promote COPD awareness and advocacy in the mid 1990s. His initial emphasis was on the education of the professional community about the importance of spirometry testing as a routine part of medical examinations and the education of both the general public and professional community about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. His initial efforts culminated in the first U.S. COPD Coalition National Conference in 2003. I had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Tom beginning in 2004. My journey in the cause for COPD awareness has been exciting and rewarding in innumerable ways.

  • Leavin’ on a Jet Plane

    Last month, we discussed the “ins” and “outs” of traveling with oxygen by automobile. What about air travel? Is it possible to travel by air these days when requiring oxygen? You bet!

    There are several steps involved when bringing oxygen on board an airline. First and foremost, always contact your physician to make sure that he or she feels that you should be taking a trip.

    Once you get your doctor’s verbal OK, there are two important written things that you will need from your doctor in order to travel by air: an oxygen prescription and an airline approved “Physician Statement. “ The prescription is for a company, such as American Medical Sales & Repair, that will be providing a Portable Oxygen Concentrator rental; the Physician Statement is for the airline and must be either an actual airline form or on physician’s letterhead. The airlines have different polices regarding this form, so you must check with each carrier on your itinerary!

  • This Ol’ Heart of Mine

    February is the month of Valentines, cupid and big, red hearts.  What would February be without them all?  Especially hearts!  For those of us using supplemental oxygen, we know that our hearts pump our blood, which carries oxygen to all of our vital organs.  We can easily keep track of our blood oxygen levels by using a portable finger pulse oximeter.

    The technology behind a pulse oximeter is fairly simple: light waves read the amount of oxygen in our blood and that number is given a numerical value, based on a percentage.  It’s really that easy.

  • AMSR Rental Program Gets Pulmonary Patients Traveling

    American Medical Sales and Repair and its Oxygen Concentrator Store brings both continuous flow and pulse portable oxygen concentrators to a flexible rental program that delivers therapeutic mobility and opens travel to COPD patients.

    CENTENNIAL, CO – Pulmonary therapy patients who use oxygen concentrators to maintain an active lifestyle face difficulties in planning travel because home respiratory units are not portable and patients can’t be off of oxygen for extended periods of time. American Medical Sales and Rentals and its Oxygen Concentrator Store, the country’s largest online purveyor of such equipment, recently revised its portable oxygen concentrator rental program to bring these patients the flexibility they need for therapeutic mobility and travel.

    “We have expanded our rental fleet of portable oxygen units from three popular brand name units to four and added the two newest and lightest units. The fleet now gives patients four options for pulse concentrators and two options for continuous flow concentrators,” says Jennifer Hopkins, AMSR CEO and Partner. “We have also added daily rentals (7-day minimum) to our formerly weekly-only rental programs so patients have the flexibility of paying for just the mobility they require.”
