Oxygen therapy is important for patients who have low levels of oxygen in their blood. Several factors, such as fluid build up, require a breathing apparatus to help clear out mucus or other blockages that may occur in the respiratory system. If you have everything else you need but are still looking for a few miscellaneous items, there are plenty of accessories available that you can stock up with and use whenever needed. Find out more about these items below the listed accessories.
Adapters and Tubing: Tubing and adapters are important extras to have, specifically due to the constant changes that need to be made for proper maintenance. A nipple and nut adapter, which must be changed constantly, is a great accessory to have more than one of. It's best used for standard D.I.S.S. threaded oxygen outlets. For tubing wear-and-tear or breaks, replacement tubing can be right around the corner if there are enough back-ups.
Reservoirs and Chambers: Reservoirs are able to hold small amounts of liquid or other substance for later usage. Humidification chambers can be used with a humidification base and establish a fixed level of fluid that will maintain itself through treatment. These are especially good pieces to have in a medical office setting. Having a few extra on hand can help with day-to-day operations.
Body Accessories and Clothing Bags: Not every accessory piece available has to strictly involve a connection to the therapy device itself. Many items/accessories can be placed onto or inside of a body part, accomplishing comfort during usage. Medical facilities will benefit from having patient bags to safely store clothing for their patients. There are also several creams and other body protection pieces that make using devices a little easier.
These therapy accessories will help keep patients and facilities have plenty of stock on hand. These will be great pieces to have for both patients and medical facilities.
