Airvo Review For Pneumonia
All in all, this is one of the most impressive pieces of equipment in respiratory therapy today.
Southeastern Equipment & Oxygen has utilized the Airvo in many therapeutic environments including nursing home/rehab facility, hospice, home care, and even our own employees and customer’s homes – the results are truly astounding.
Originally developed to treat pneumonia, the Airvo delivers heated humidification at flow levels up to 60 liters (your typical oxygen concentrator delivers O2 at a max of 10L). The heated humidity works to essentially wash-out the lungs of phlegm and puss associated with pneumonia.
Consider attempting to dissolve a tablespoon of honey in a glass of room temperature water (~70 degrees). The honey will not melt in the 70-degree water.
Now, imagine the same tablespoon of water being stirred into a glass of body-temperature water (~98 degrees). The honey will disperse quickly into the water at this temperature.
The heated humidity produced by the Airvo has the same effect on the congestion in lungs as the heated water in the honey scenario.
Using the Airvo for 2-4 hours per day results in a washout or cleaning of the lungs. Benefits can be realized within a couple of uses but continued use will only continue to clean and result in better lung function.
Our team of clinicians would be happy to discuss the benefits of using the Airvo in your home. We have an airvo for sale.
