- Cpap Bipap Ventilator
- Oxygen Generator System
Many patients with respiratory diseases are hesitant to buy oxygen concentrators and ventilators. Most people don't know much about oxygen concentrators and ventilators. Many people are asking patients with lung diseases whether to buy oxygen concentrators or ventilators. Can an oxygen generator be used as a ventilator? If you have a ventilator, do you still need to continue to buy an oxygen generator? Only by truly understanding the difference between ventilator and oxygen generator can we "prescribe the right medicine" and achieve the therapeutic effect.
Ventilator and oxygen generator are medical equipment, but the principle of use of ventilator and oxygen generator is different, so it should be selected according to the condition of different patients.
1. What is CPAP/BIPAP Ventilator?
Ventilator is a vital medical equipment that can prevent and treat respiratory failure, reduce complications, save and prolong patients' lives. In modern clinical medicine, ventilator, as an effective means to replace the function of voluntary ventilation, has been widely used in respiratory failure caused by various reasons, anesthesia respiratory management during major surgery, respiratory support therapy and emergency resuscitation, and occupies a very important position in modern medical field.
2. What is the Oxygen Concentrator?
Oxygen generator is a kind of machine for producing oxygen. Its principle is to use air separation technology. Most oxygen concentrators are molecular sieve oxygen concentrators, which use the adsorption property of molecular sieve, and take the large displacement oil-free compressor as the power through physical principle to separate nitrogen from oxygen in the air, and finally obtain high concentration oxygen. This type of oxygen generator produces oxygen quickly and has high oxygen concentration, so it is suitable for oxygen therapy and oxygen health care for all kinds of people.
3. The Difference Between Oxygen Concentrator and Ventilator
Ventilators output air, which is an effective means to artificially replace the function of voluntary ventilation; The oxygen generator outputs oxygen to improve the oxygen content of human body. Generally speaking, a ventilator is to ventilate patients, and an oxygen generator is to ventilate patients.
The respirator can adjust the frequency, size and intensity of breathing, while the oxygen generator can only adjust the oxygen flow.
Ventilator is used in respiratory failure caused by various reasons, anesthesia respiratory management during major surgery, respiratory support therapy and emergency resuscitation. Oxygen generator is an auxiliary means to correct pathological hypoxia, such as respiratory failure, chronic bronchitis, cerebrovascular disease, coronary heart disease, etc.
