DeVilbiss: Blissfully Easy Healthcare
Friday, 31 July 2015 | Penelope
You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone and 80,000 UK sufferers of Sleep Apnoea know precisely what that means. As sufferers struggle to get a proper night’s sleep, DeVilbiss works to provide the best products possible for dealing with disturbed sleep.
We may stock a wealth of items for aching backs or poorly feet, for the injury-stricken athletes or the recovering outpatient but Health and Care also have a plethora of items for those less than obvious ailments and conditions. It’s easy to take even the simplest things for granted, not least a good night’s sleep, but thanks to DeVilbiss' CPAP range, sleepless nights from Sleep Apnoea are over.
A Reputation For Excellence
In DeVilbiss’ own words, they have a long history of excellence and innovation, starting all the way back in 1888 when Dr. Allen DeVilbiss developed the first atomiser – a method of applying medication to the throat with the minimum discomfort to the patient. This first product under the DeVilbiss name is still part of their impressive portfolio today.
DeVilbiss’ reputation comes from their expansive range of healthcare equipment, treating conditions that are perhaps little known but significantly debilitating in those who suffer from them. Sleep therapy, suction therapy and aerosol therapy are all catered for in DeVilbiss’ high quality range of medical aids and equipment, often compact and perfectly formed, they offer a small change that makes a big difference to the quality of lives of thousands of people.
Sleep Tight With DeVilbiss
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) affects more than 80,000 people in the UK alone and while a tendency to wake up in the night might not seem like a particularly perilous condition to suffer from, this constant state of insomnia can be incredibly destructive to a person's overall health. Sleep Apnoea involves the throat narrowing to dangerous widths during sleep, to the point that it inhibits breathing. This sudden pause in breath can occur hundreds of time in one night, and can last anything few a few seconds to over a minute, causing the body to be shocked into wakefulness by the sudden drop in blood oxygen levels. With OSA presenting every night, it is not long until sleeping well is a thing of the past — but not so with DeVilbiss.
DeVilbiss SleepCubes are based on CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) a form of therapy that uses pressurised air to keep the airways open. DeVilbiss' SleepCubes are compact pieces of technology that can give sufferers of OSA their sleep routine back. Acting as a successful remedy to sleep apnoea by passing pressurised air through one of their high-performing and highly comfortable masks, the SleepCubes are small, ergonomically designed but utterly life changing pieces of kit that can cure this every-night condition in the comfort of your own home.
Combined with the Smartlink module and software, the DeVilbiss SleepCubes do more than stop Sleep Apnea from ruining a restful night's sleep, they can also monitor and record personal sleep records that allow your sleep therapy to be tailored to the highest precision.
At Health and Care we’re proud to make the products of brands like DeVilbiss available to our customers; products that help change the long-term, fundamental quality of people’s lives. DeVilbiss do not intend to stop in their attempts to make lives better through innovation, either, continuing the work started by Dr. DeVilbiss over 125 years ago.
