Leaving a medical centre with new care needs can be frightening for both the patient and their families. Among these, home ventilation is one of the most complex and daunting for everyone involved.
Watching a loved one face breathing difficulties is dreadful enough. On top of that, the patient has to rely on a piece of complicated and technical equipment. Like other forms of technology, however, education and a bit of practice make it convenient to use a ventilator at home over time.
Learning more about it will help you transition from a full-time care facility into your home, which is part of the ventilation at home service we provide. In this post, we will talk more about this process from both - the clients’ as well as the care providers’ - points of view.
Helping the Patient Deal with Ventilation at Home
When it comes to healthcare needs such as ventilation and assisted breathing, no two people are the same. This is why the team at the medical facility and our team work together to ensure the most favourable environment for the patient to come home to.
Our specialists are trained to work with a range of clients with different levels of dependence on mechanically assisted breathing. There is an entire spectrum of variables that includes ventilation pressures, oxygen concentration levels, and different mask types.
These are present to suit the specific requirement of the individual that may change depending on the reason. Some of the major reasons why patients require assisted breathing services are:
● High spinal cord injury
● Neuromuscular conditions causing breathing difficulties
● Chest wall or diaphragm-related issues
● Other stable or progressive conditions
At Wahat Al Aman, our team of physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists caters to patients of all age groups ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics. Regular visits are made by our physician and respiratory therapist to ensure patient is stable and does not require any escalation of care.
