When it comes to quality health care, people have a lot of
questions. And since we can't answer every question, we at least want to offer
our free network to anyone who has questions and concerns about their health
and health of their loved one's. We have forged partnerships with local health
services to help you learn more about nearly any health topic.
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

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

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.
