Picture yourself in the comforts of your own home, taking care of yourself and holding your own. Maybe you move a little slower and need some assistance here and there, but for the most part, you still have the independence you’ve always had. In order to keep your body in the best shape and free of injury, you should take some precautionary measures. Safety proofing your bathroom is essential for protecting yourself from life’s accidents. Remain independent and in your home with these essential, safety medical supplies for a safer bathroom. 

Adjustable Shower Head - While an adjustable shower head isn’t necessarily going to make your shower safer, it will make more convenient and easier to use. 
Transfer Chair - Transfer chairs are great because they conveniently span from the inside of the bathtub, over the top of it to the outside of the bathtub. This allows you to easily slide in and out of the shower, making it less likely for you to slip and fall. 
Toilet Grab Bars - Toilet Grab bars are a great aid for getting up and sitting down to go to the bathroom. The also aid in balance as well. Having toilet grab bars help you keep from falling from losing your balance when sitting down.

If you want to continue to live independently and remain free of injury, you should take it upon yourself to get your home safety proofed with medical supplies and equipment. The possibilities for injury are endless, but so are solutions to those problems. If you’re considering safety proofing your bathroom, you should consider these products to get you started. Take a look at the products that Medlife Medical Suppliers have to offer.

There is no better portable oxygen concentrator than the Sequal Eclipse 5. What makes this device better than the rest is the fact that it has up to 9 pulse settings that can be chosen from, depending on how much extra oxygen the individual who is using it needs. When sitting at home or when lying in bed, a lower level of oxygen is usually necessary in order for one to be breathing comfortably. In contrast, when traveling or doing more walking and physical activity, a higher amount of oxygen is ideal. 

Not only can the Sequal Eclipse 5 function at a variety of levels, it can also be plugged in and re-charged in the wall or even in your car while driving. This makes it easy and convenient to always have plenty of oxygen. The Sequal Eclipse 5 is also placed on a portable cart that makes it easy to move the oxygen tank when it needs to be charged. Plus, the Sequal Eclipse 5 was designed in such a convenient way it is easy to travel with, allowing people who most likely were unable to freely travel before get out and see sights that they only dreamed of ever seeing.

The Sequal Eclipse 5 is the most simple and easy oxygen solution for using when either traveling or spending time at home. This oxygen concentrator comes in multiple sizes, including a smaller, travel size package, which keeps it from ever getting in the way or being a nuisance. 

Contact MedLife and let us help you find the perfect Sequal Eclipse 5, for you!

Dear Oxygen Experts,
My mother is 70 and enjoys life to the fullest. She is very active, but has some cardiovascular disease and needs to have oxygen. It is clunky and I’m afraid that she is going to hurt herself with one of those big oxygen tanks (or even a small one for that matter). She has an extra long line so she can go down the hall and avoid lugging her tank. However, when she goes down to the cafeteria or leaves the building, she is stuck lugging that big ol’ concentrator and tank around. They are just too big for her to manage. What can I do? I have heard of these portable oxygen concentrators that allow for much more mobility. Those might be just what we are looking for to help my mom become more mobile. Can you tell me about those?
Thank you for your expertise,
Concentrating On Portability


Dear Concentrating,
You and your mom are going to love our selection of portable oxygen concentrators. We have a wide variety of very handy and lightweight machines for your mom to choose from. We are not sure how familiar you are with portable concentrators, so we will just let you know that they split into two categories: Pulse Flow and Continuous Flow. Pulse flow concentrators are great for running some errands or doing things that will take a couple hours. If that sounds like it might be what you are looking for, check out the Inogen One G3. If you are traveling and staying overnight away from home, check out our continuous flow portable concentrators like the SeQual Eclipse 5. Since we have published several interesting and informative articles on our site and in our blog, we are going to review one of our articles in case you would like more information on our portable concentrators. We will post a brief excerpt from the post so you can see if it has the information that you need. We will also post a direct link to the blog article just in case you would like to read more about our portable oxygen concentrators.

The Inogen One G3 gives you the oxygen you need in the small package you’ve always dreamed of. It is a small lightweight oxygen concentrator that has AC and DC power charging capabilities and a 4 hour battery life. It can be carried in a bag making it more discrete and less likely to be hit by something.
While you dream about the places you want to go, let us paint you a picture. Picture going on a trip to Rome to see all the beautiful architecture, sculpture, and art. Next, go through the logistics of how that would all happen. The FAA will not let a pressurized oxygen tank on a plane, but the G3 is FAA approved and it can be plugged into the onboard outlets. Imagine if you were able to get that oxygen tank on the ground in Rome, dragging it across the airport alone would be tiresome. Once out of the airport, imagine rolling the wheels through the cobblestone square of St Peter’s Basilica. All of these issues could be remedied by the G3. As said before it is lightweight and less likely to bumped or jostled by another gawking tourist. Need to charge before you see another site, switch the power supply to DC and charge it in car on the way there. 
 With all the wonderful things to do in the world, the real question we want to ask you is what is holding you back. If it is something as simple as the wrong source of oxygen then we suggest you consider the G3. Where will your life take you?

If you have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), your lungs may not be getting all the oxygen they need. That’s why your doctor may prescribe an oxygen concentrator like the Invacare Perfecto2. Here’s a look at what an oxygen concentrator is and how to use it.

What Is a Stationary Oxygen Concentrator?

This device filters nitrogen and other gases out of the air, leaving only pure oxygen in the concentrator. A tube connects the concentrator to a breathing device, such as a cannula or mask, which delivers the pure oxygen through your nose and/or mouth.

Using Your Oxygen Concentrator

Follow your manufacturer's instructions when using your concentrator. Here are a few basics provided by Invacare, the largest manufacturer of oxygen concentrators: 

--Care for the air inlet filter: Wash it in soapy water when it becomes dirty. Rinse it clean, and pat it dry before reinstalling it in the oxygen concentrator.
--Check the alarm: If your oxygen concentrator has this feature, make sure it’s in working order. If the buzzer does not sound when you push your power switch, call your oxygen provider for assistance.
--Set the flow meter: Your health-care provider should show you how to set your prescribed flow for your needs.
--Check the humidifier: Refill the bottle with distilled water when it runs low, which might be once or more per day.
--Use your oxygen concentrator: Hook up the tube, plug in the concentrator, press the power button and put on the breathing device to begin receiving oxygen.

You’ve just ordered your Inogen One G3 oxygen concentrator or other type of oxygen equipment and they are on their way to your home. What you’ll need to do now is do a little preparation to make sure your oxygen equipment can be quickly and easily set up so you can start using it.

Whether you are going to be using oxygen therapy because you have a chronic lung disease like COPD, a condition like sleep apnea, or you need supplemental oxygen for any other reason, you can easily use it in your home with little to no fuss.

The first thing to consider is that if you live in a second story house or you will be needing constant oxygen, you will want to opt for a portable oxygen concentrator. If you live in a one story home or you will only need oxygen for a few hours a day or while you sleep, a home oxygen concentrator will be sufficient.

Secondly, after you’ve made sure you have a clear path for your oxygen concentrator, you will need to clear a small area for your machine that is close to a three-pronged electrical outlet. If you don’t have a three-pronged outlet, you will need to get a three-pronged adapter to attach to the end of the plug.

Last but certainly not least, get a no smoking sign and hang it on a wall near the entrance of your home. Oxygen doesn’t spontaneously combust, but you don’t want to be anywhere near a flame while you are using your oxygen machine, since the flames can quickly get out of control when exposed to pure oxygen.

 If you've been told by your doctor that you need an oxygen concentrator, you may be looking into the Invacare Perfecto2 or Inogen One G3. Either are great choices and MedLife Equipment can answer any of your questions you may have! You may be thinking, "Why do I need oxygen therapy?" To answer this question, it's important that you understand what oxygen is, what it does in your body, who needs it in general, and many other things.

What is oxygen?
Air is a mixture of gases. Oxygen and nitrogen are the two main gases in the air we breathe. Oxygen accounts for about 21% of gas in air. Every cell in our body needs oxygen to live. In order for oxygen to get to these cells, it must be transported through the airways of the lungs.

How do I know I need oxygen?
The need for oxygen is found by measuring the amount of oxygen in your blood stream. If your oxygen level is below a critical level at rest, then you need oxygen close to 24 hours a day. Some people with COPD do not need oxygen when they are inactive, such as when sitting, but need oxygen when exercising, such as walking, or with eating and/or sleeping. Breathlessness is not a reliable way of determining if you need oxygen. Sometimes, you can be very short of breath and not need oxygen; other times your breathing may feel okay, but you are not getting enough oxygen.

Choosing a Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC) like our SeQual Eclipse 5 should not be difficult. This is an exciting purchase and is quite simple. However, there are a few important factors for you to consider. 

First, you simply need to know and understand what your doctor is prescribing and we can help!  Your physician will prescribe a setting or how much oxygen (Liters Per Minute "LPM") is required and how the oxygen is to be delivered.  There are only two oxygen delivery methods. Pulse Dose (on-demand when oxygen device senses a breath) and Continuous Flow (steady stream of Oxygen). If you require a Portable Oxygen Concentrator that will work with a CPAP or Bi-PAP, then our line of continuous flow oxygen concentrators will be best suited for your needs.

2 common examples of how a prescription might read:

      1.   2 LPM Pulse/Conserving

                          Or

      2.   3 LPM Continuous Flow

Another factor to consider is not just which Portable Oxygen Concentrator is the right fit today, but also which unit will be the right fit in the future.  If your respiratory conditions will deteriorate over time, possibly requiring more supplemental oxygen, you will want to purchase a portable oxygen concentrator that can meet these future requirements as well.  We highly recommend discussing this with your physician before purchasing a portable oxygen concentrator.

Once you have determined which Portable Oxygen Concentrator best fulfills your prescription, you can begin looking for a device that will help to improve your lifestyle. Chances are, there may be more than one choice of Portable Oxygen Concentrator that will work clinically, so we encourage you to call or contact us for assistance!

1. Can I travel with the concentrator? Absolutely! Just be aware that various transports (airplanes, buses, etc) have different regulations so contact them ahead of time to make sure they will allow your oxygen concentrator. 

2. What should I watch for while on oxygen? Too much oxygen can cause a build up of carbon dioxide in your blood. This can cause drowsiness and difficulty staying awake. If you receive too much while sleeping, you can wake up with a headache. Conversely, you'll feel fatigue if you don't get enough oxygen. It's important to contact your doctor if you notice these things.
