Medequip’s Oxygen Concentrators – A Silver Lining for Those With COPD

Medequip’s Oxygen Concentrators prove to be more reliable than conventional Oxygen Support systems for patients with chronic lung disorders

When 53-year-old Prabhakaran developed a persistent cough accompanied by phlegm accumulation in the lungs, he decided to see a physician who prescribed him medicines for a cough. However, it did not help him. His job as an electrician required him to work in dusty conditions. He experienced shortness of breath, excessive mucus secretion in the lungs and continued weight loss.

After consulting a doctor at a well-known hospital, he was advised to take X-Rays. The reports revealed he had Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – a lung disorder caused by the inflammation of the airways. Typically, people with COPD have low levels of oxygen in their blood. So, the need of the hour was to provide him with Oxygen Therapy. Luckily, he was introduced to Medequip’s Oxygen Concentrators. Soon after he started using the concentrator, he experienced a significant improvement in his health.

“The Oxygen Concentrator has provided the only real respite I have felt since I began to suffer from COPD. I would recommend the machine to others who need it. It runs perfectly, it gives me relief, and it doesn’t need much maintenance. I think it is easy to use and very durable,” says Prabhakaran, who has been using the Oxygen Concentrator for a little over two years now.

Ankur Garg, Co-founder, Medequip says, “Oxy-med Oxygen concentrators offer a great advantage over the traditional oxygen cylinders, where refilling of oxygen can be cumbersome. Oxy-med Concentrators come with an inbuilt digital nebulizer providing an added advantage to the customer. We are a customer-focused company, providing cost-effective solutions to our customers with the best after sales service.”

Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD:
Emphysema is a condition where the air sacs (alveoli) are damaged due to frequent exposure to cigarette smoke or other airborne irritants. It can also be caused by an inherited deficiency of a protein (alpha-1-antitrypsin) that protects the elastic structures in the lungs.
Chronic bronchitis is the inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes which are responsible for conducting air into the lungs.

COPD is characterized by
1. Breathlessness
2. Wheezing
3. A chronic cough
4. Mucus (sputum) production
5. Fatigue
6. Lips or fingernails turning blue or grey
7. Swelling in the legs
8. Frequent respiratory infections

Suhas Shubhakaran, Co-founder, Medequip emphasizes, “The duration of Oxygen Therapy can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of COPD and the patient’s level of activity. Normalising the oxygen level in the blood helps overcome breathlessness and ease the pain in the chest. Medequip aims to provide the oxygen systems that best fit the patient’s requirement and lifestyle.”
