SleepWELL™ Sleep Apnea Program

What is Sleep Apnea?

During sleep, especially during the deepest stages of sleep (called REM sleep), the muscles in the back of the throat relax, causing the upper airway to become smaller.  For some individuals, the upper airway collapses, causing a blockage of air movement into the lungs and stopping the airflow for several seconds or more.  When breathing pauses for at least 10 seconds, it is commonly referred to as an apnea.

Apneas can occur multiple times each hour and can last anywhere from seconds to minutes before regular breathing restarts.  These pauses in breathing can be extremely disruptive to your sleep.  During apneas, an arousal (moving from deep sleep to “lighter” sleep) may occur, affecting your ability to maintain deeper stages of restful sleep. 

 

Sleep Apnea can be Dangerous

One out of every five Americans suffers from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).  Patients with OSA rarely get a good night’s sleep because their collapsed airways and apneas usually lead to excessively loud snoring, gasping for air, interrupted sleep and overall increased fatigue during the day.  Unfortunately, that often means their loved ones suffer right alongside them.

But the dangers of sleep apnea can extend far beyond poor sleep quality and chronic fatigue.  Without proper treatment, OSA can have serious adverse effects on your brain, heart, and lungs as well.  If you have untreated sleep apnea, you are at an increased risk of experiencing high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack and stroke.

Home Oxygen Therapy

Home Oxygen Therapy

home oxygen therapy

Oxygen is vital to help our bodies properly function and stay physically active; you can think of it as the gas that fuels your vehicle and keeps it running as it should.  The air we inhale travels to the respiratory system’s main hub of organs and tissues, energizing the airways and lungs to help us properly breathe.

The airways serve as passageways for oxygen-rich air to enter the lungs and an exit for carbon dioxide while the oxygen is absorbed into the bloodstream as it makes its way to the heart.  For some individuals, however, certain chronic conditions and illnesses restrict these pathways and prevent them from getting ample amounts of oxygen into the blood.

To increase the amount of oxygen in the blood stream and improve the overall quality of function for the lungs, supplemental oxygen therapy is prescribed to give patients the extra boost they need to breathe better and enjoy a better quality of life.

 

Rotech’s Oxygen Services

At Rotech, we believe that your life should be improved by your prescribed equipment – not limited by it.  For this reason, we provide a full line of oxygen equipment, including:

  • Oxygen Concentrators - a device used in your home which provides oxygen at higher concentrations than room air
  • Portable Oxygen Systems - for convenient use when you are on the move!

Our trained and experienced Patient Service Technicians make sure you are properly educated on your oxygen equipment from safe set-up to effective operation in the comfort of your home.  With hundreds of locations throughout the country, we are able to service a wide-range of patients and will work with medical providers to accommodate your home oxygen needs.

 

Contact your nearest Rotech location to get your oxygen order started.

About Oxygen Therapy – To increase the amount of oxygen received and improve the overall quality of lung function, supplemental oxygen therapy is prescribed to those who aren’t getting sufficient amounts of oxygen on their own.

Home Oxygen Management – Using an oxygen concentrator, a device that provides oxygen at substantially higher concentrations than available in room air, our home oxygen therapy improves a patient’s oxygen levels, making it easier for them to breathe.

Rotech’s Oxygen Products & Services – Rotech offers a full line of oxygen equipment for home and travel use including concentrators and portable cylinders.

Nebulizers

Nebulizer Therapy

If you have limitations with your breathing, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), bronchitis, pneumonia, or asthma, and are dependent on aerosol medications to give you relief, you should have comfort in knowing it’s available when you need it.  Sometimes traditional inhalers may not be enough, and your physician may prescribe a nebulizer for treatment of your breathing difficulties.

A nebulizer is a device which takes a small amount of liquid medication and turns it into a mist that can be inhaled (a successful method that has been used as a frontline treatment of respiratory disease for many years).

 

Rotech’s Nebulizer Management Program

Nebulizers can accommodate both active and non-active lifestyles.  Using a mouthpiece or a mask, nebulizers can provide immediate relief and can be used for routine maintenance of breathing difficulties.  For patients who have difficulty using inhalers, nebulizers are easy to use - and since the mist sends the medication directly to the lungs, you get the full dose where it is needed the most.

Learn more about  nebulizer supplies and equipment by contacting your nearest Rotech location started.
