Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, abbreviated as COPD, is a lung disease that is gradually life-threatening, causing breathing difficulties (initially more laborious) and easily worsening and causing serious diseases. It can develop into pulmonary heart disease and respiratory failure. The international authoritative medical journal “The Lancet” for the first time stated that the number of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in my country is about 100 million, and it has become a chronic disease “on the same level” as hypertension and diabetes.

The World Health Organization points out that there is no cure for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but treatment can relieve symptoms, improve quality of life and reduce the risk of death.

The symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are gradual deterioration and long-lasting breathing difficulties when exerting force, which eventually leads to breathlessness at rest. The disease is often underdiagnosed and can be life-threatening.


Non-invasive ventilation and home ventilator

  As the disease worsens, many patients will have hypoxemia. Hypoxemia is the main cause of pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary heart disease. It is also an important cause of metabolic disorders and important organ dysfunction. Long-term home oxygen therapy and non-invasive ventilation with ventilator can improve the symptoms of hypoxia and control the symptoms of COPD patients. An important means of disease development.


        Non-invasive ventilation refers to positive pressure ventilation in which the ventilator is connected to the patient through the mouth or nasal mask. The machine provides compressed air flow to open the obstructed airway, increase alveolar ventilation, and reduce the work of breathing, without the need to establish an invasive artificial airway.

       The disease of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease can be said to be an incompletely reversible disease. In the management of family therapy, medical treatment is necessary, and the cooperation of dual-level non-invasive ventilator is equally important. The use of a bi-level non-invasive ventilator can reduce carbon dioxide retention while meeting the patient’s oxygen supply needs, and has a good protective effect on the patient’s lungs, heart and other tissues and organs; at the same time, it reduces the patient’s acute attack period and indirectly reduces hospitalization. The number of times and huge medical costs improve the quality of life of patients.
