Who uses an O2 Concentrator? COPD Patients.
An estimated 10 million Americans suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
(COPD), an illness with disabling symptoms, high cost of care, and substantial mortality. COPD is an obstructive airway disease that is characterized by a reduction noted on the individual's pulmonary function study. The term COPD is often applied to a family of diseases, including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and alpha 1-antitrypsin disease. Currently, therapeutic interventions can slow the progression of these diseases, but they cannot stop or reverse it.Medicare and Oxygen Concentrators:
