Consider every breath: AVAPS therapy & the chronic disease sufferer

 

Average Volume Assured Pressure Support (AVAPS) therapy technology1 is designed to provide consistent tidal volume – e.g. volume of inhaled air – at the lowest minimum inspiratory pressure. AVAPS therapy maintains the low pressure required to achieve the prescribed tidal volume, with each and every breath. Patients can enjoy enhanced comfort and the confidence that the therapy is working effectively. 

 

This article explores how hybrid mode AVAPS can be an effective therapy for chronic disease sufferers, whose disease progression and needs evolve.

Philips & World COPD Day 2017: there’s always a way to make life better

 

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common, often underdiagnosed, and debilitating disease.  It is fourth leading cause of death worldwide and is estimated to be the third leading cause by 20202, and yet, there is still a lack of awareness and a social stigma associated with the disease.

 

Philips is committed to sustaining the education and moral support of patients, families and care givers impacted by COPD. Recently Philips joined forces with the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) to support World COPD Day.

 

This year, Philips joined forces with with Russell Winwood and his physician to help educate, engage and empower COPD patients and their caregivers. Russell Winwood, a COPD patient and advocate, shares his personal journey with other COPD patients to inspire them to live their lives to the fullest.

Happenings is a look at some of the exciting and empowering goings-on in the world of sleep and respiratory care.
