Available Systems for Oxygen Therapy

There are several ways oxygen therapy is supplied: Compressed oxygen gas and liquid oxygen are two ways to have oxygen delivered to you at your home or business. Oxygen gas is stored in tanks or cylinders of steel or aluminum. These tanks come in many sizes, larger ones are usually used at home, and smaller ones are used for traveling. Larger amounts of oxygen can be stored in smaller, more convenient containers than compressed oxygen, however, the disadvantage is that it cannot be kept for a long time because it will evaporate. Oxygen concentrators are also available to use in the home. An oxygen concentrator is an electric device and produces oxygen by concentrating the oxygen that is already in the air and removing other gases. This method is less expensive, easier to maintain, and doesn't require refilling. There are drawbacks but several reliable portable oxygen concentrators have been improved and allow you to easily leave the home and enjoy recreational activities.

Rehabilitation for Children, Adult, Speech and Occupational Therapies

The type of therapy and goals of therapy may be different according to the individual. An older adult who has had a stroke may simply want rehabilitation to be able to dress or bathe without help. A younger adult who has suffered a heart attack may go through cardiac rehabilitation to try to return to work. Someone with a lung disease may get pulmonary rehabilitation to be able to breathe better and improve their quality of life. A child with behavioral problems may need guidance and direction from a trained and caring professional.

Prepare For Emergencies

The likelihood that you and your family will survive a house fire depends as much on having a working smoke detector and an exit strategy, as on a well-trained fire department. The same is true for surviving a terrorist attack or other emergency. We must have the tools and plans in place to make it on our own, at least for a period of time, no matter where we are when disaster strikes. Just like having a working smoke detector, preparing for the unexpected makes sense. GET READY NOW.
