The Global Respiratory Device market can be segmented into products available in the market: Positive Airway Pressure Devices, Mechanical Ventilators, Nebulizers, 0xygen Concentrators, and Humidifiers.
Washington, Dec 11 ( ANI ): Researchers have found that among patients with obstructive sleep apnea and hypertension that requires 3 or more medications to control, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment for 12 weeks resulted in a decrease in 24-hour average and diastolic blood pressure and an improvement in the nocturnal blood pressure pattern, compared to patients who did not receive CPAP.
Use of a device that supplies humidified oxygen is more effective than a technique that reduces positive airway pressure delivered to the lungs in helping patients who have been on a ventilator more than 21 days regain the ability to breathe on their own, according to a study supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Their major services consist of Nocturnal oxygen, professional mask fitting (with 30 day mask guarantee), compliance monitoring, overnight oximetry, Nebulizers, continuous airway pressure (CPAP), Bi-level positive airway pressure (BIPAP), auto positive airway pressure (AUTOPAP), and vanable positive airway pressure (VPAP).
