Inogen Respiratory Therapy

Inogen Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory therapy is a medical field that involves exercises and treatments designed to help patients recover lung function. Respiratory therapy treatment options include CPAP machines, nebulizers, oxygen concentrators, tracheostomy supplies and breathing therapy products.

How to Choose an Inogen Respiratory Therapy Product

Inogen carries a wide variety of different oxygen respiratory products. Choosing a respiratory therapy product will depend heavily upon your diagnosed condition, symptoms and personal preferences. Browse through the following products for respiratory therapy to find the correct one for you:

  • Oxygen Concentrators: An oxygen concentrator is a machine indicated for oxygen therapy patients. Oxygen patients can choose between a home oxygen machine and a portable oxygen machine contingent upon their oxygen needs and personal preferences.
  • Air Purifier/Humidifier: Air purifiers and humidifiers are designed to provide better room air condition to prevent lungs from becoming irritated. You may use an air purifier if you have a weak immune system or sensitivity to allergens and bacteria.
  • CPAP Machines: CPAP machines are indicated for the treatment of sleep apnea, and come in a wide variety of designs and styles. A doctor can help recommend which CPAP machine and accessories are ideal for you.
  • Nebulizer Compressor: A nebulizer compressor is a device used to produce a light spray of liquid, usually with the purpose of inhaling a medicinal drug. Talk to your doctor to find out what kind of nebulizer you need.
  • Tracheotomy Supplies: Tracheotomy supplies are medical devices used for stomas in an individual's airway. Tracheotomy supplies include aspirators, trach collars and trach tubes to assist with breathing while suctioning fluids from an individual.

What Is Chronic Respiratory Failure?

Acute respiratory failure is short term, while chronic respiratory failure is a long term condition. Chronic respiratory failure can happen as a result of certain respiratory diseases, such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Additionally, however, chronic respiratory failure can also be a result of spinal cord injuries, nerve damage and chronic alcohol abuse.

Treating Respiratory Failure

There are several treatment options available for respiratory therapy. A few of the current treatment options include:

  • Oxygen Therapy: This includes increasing the amount of oxygen in your blood by increasing the amount you inhale. An oxygen machine is usually used.
  • Tracheotomy: A tracheotomy is used in severe cases. The process of a tracheotomy involves the doctor creating a small hole in the front of the neck where the windpipe is located.
  • A Ventilation Machine: If the before mentioned options do not work, a ventilation or breathing machine might be used. The machine pumps oxygen through a tube that fits on a mask over your mouth and nose.
