Oxygen

Oxygen therapy, also known as supplemental oxygen, is the use of oxygen as a medical treatment. This can include for low blood oxygen, carbon monoxide toxicity, cluster headaches, and to maintain enough oxygen while inhaled anesthetics are given. Long-term oxygen is often useful in people with chronically low oxygen such as from severe COPD or cystic fibrosis. Click below to view Oxygen training resources.

   CPAP/BiPAP

CPAP, which stands for “continuous positive airway pressure,” is a breathing therapy device that delivers air to a mask worn over the nose and/or mouth to help consistent breathing by keeping one's airway unobstructed. It’s used primarily for sleep apnea, but also in the treatment of other breathing conditions. BiPAP/VPAP (BiLevel/Variable Positive Airway Pressure) machines provide two continuous levels of pressure.

Nebulizers

A nebulizer is a device used to administer medication in the form of a mist inhaled into the lungs. Nebulized therapy, often referred to as "breathing treatment," is commonly used for the treatment of asthma, cystic fibrosis, COPD and other respiratory diseases or disorders. It is also a good way to give asthma medications to infants, small children and anyone who has trouble using an asthma inhaler.

glucometer

Glucometers

A glucose meter (glucometer) is a device for determining the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood. It is a key element of home blood glucose monitoring  by individuals with diabetes mellitus or hypoglycemia. A small drop of blood, obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet, is placed on a disposable test strip that the meter reads and uses to calculate the blood glucose level.
