  • The Harms of Wrong Breathing and the Importance of Correct Breathing
    Breath means life. Therefore, first of all, one must learn to breathe correctly. When a newborn baby is watched, it is seen that he is breathing by inflating his stomach. This is the most correct and natural breathing. Over time, this correct breathing deteriorates, people start to breathe through the mouth, do not fully use their lungs during breathing and disrupt the natural biorhythm of breathing. During this type of insufficient breathing, only the middle part of the lungs works, blood vessels narrow, circulation slows down, less oxygen passes into the blood, and the body and brain do not receive enough oxygen. Oxygen starvation strains the sympathetic nervous system. Therefore, the heartbeat accelerates and becomes irregular. The individual is forgetful, confused, uneasy, full of fear, anxious, tense and touchy. Thus, the body becomes tired, lifeless and exhausted, and its resistance to diseases decreases. A newborn baby instinctively breathes correctly.Thanks to the natural reflex, he knows how to breathe correctly and does not need breathing training. As the baby grows and develops, the living environment also changes and the individual forgets this natural breath. Stressful and tense living conditions, especially in big cities, impair natural respiration. When the polluted air in big cities is added to this, people are constantly suffering from respiratory ailments. In order to increase the resistance of the organism to diseases in unsanitary conditions, man has to learn to breathe correctly again.Many people's lungs do not work properly because their breathing is shallow and quick. Due to surface respiration, the body cells do not receive enough oxygen and the lungs cannot completely get rid of the toxins that occur during respiration. Since the diaphragm remains motionless during such breathing, the kidneys, intestines, entire digestive and excretory system become passive. This is why the heart is strained and worn out. Incorrect and insufficient respiration negatively affects the nervous system and heart. This leads to the formation of many diseases.The individual must tame his breath and begin to recognize it in silence. It is the breath that covers and oppresses the person in strong emotions. A person can be more self-controlled by taking it under his control.
  • What is a Coughing Device? Why is it Important?
    Coughing devices that improve the cough reflex and clean the airway of patients with respiratory failure and bronchial secretion can be applied noninvasively through a mouth-nose mask or a tracheostomy cannula. It is a device that should be used at home by patients who have a secretion in the lungs and have difficulty in coughing it up, so that they can breathe comfortably. It is also widely used as an auxiliary device for respiratory support in the Intensive Care Units of hospitals. It is a device that allows the removal of the secretion that cannot be excreted in the bronchi with the high positive pressure (20-60 cmH2O) given during the patient's breathing and the negative pressure given during the exhalation. Application time is only a few minutes. Inhalation and exhalation pressure cycles can be selected manually, and there is an option to automatically adjust the application times. It is also frequently used in muscle diseases such as SMA and ALS. The most important benefits of the device; It is very easy to remove the sputum in the lungs, reduce the infection in the respiratory tract, provide safe and non-invasive suction, and be applied by the patient or patient relatives.
  • What is Sleep Apnea? How Does Sleep Apnea Occur?
    People with sleep apnea have respiratory arrests during sleep. WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?Sleep Apnea occurs when there is a breathing disorder during sleep. People with sleep apnea have respiratory arrests during sleep. These may be in varying numbers depending on the severity of the disease. The number of stops per hour is important to us. People with the disease experience blockages during the night while breathing. This is mostly said by the relatives of the individual. Discourses are more like "You're out of breath, you're choking, you're having trouble breathing". They also have other problems. These are waking up at night, headaches in the morning, excessive fatigue during the day, falling asleep, and such complaints of individuals. In addition, there is loud snoring. People with sleep apnea snore very loudly.SYMPTOMS OF SLEEP APNEASleep is a vital process for us. In this way, we are functional during the day. If we can't sleep, if we don't get our sleep, our mental functions and metabolic functions will deteriorate. The most common conditions in those with sleep apnea are attention and concentration disorders, insomnia, and depression. In addition, hypertension is a condition seen in people who have sleep apnea. Apart from hypertension, heart diseases also cause sleep apnea. Sleep apnea causes obesity. No matter how much they diet, they cannot lose weight. Sleep apnea is more common in obese individuals with a high amount of fat in the neck region. One may not notice this much. But when they go to a doctor, the doctor can tell. In children, especially children with tonsils and adenoids are at risk. That too should be taken seriously. Because the child's breathing is blocked, he cannot grow, his school success decreases. Children should not be neglected either. However, sleep apnea is slightly more common in men. Women are also at risk if there is thickening in the neck region.WHAT DOES THE SLEEP LABORATORY DOPeople come with sleep problems. The most frequently reported distress is 'I sleep all day long, my wife says I'm clogged while sleeping'. In such cases, we attach electrodes to the muscles and legs in the sleep laboratory and record the sleep. We treat accordingly.STAGES OF SLEEP APNEAThere are mild, moderate and severe stages of sleep apnea. When the number of respiratory arrests in the hour we need is between 5 and 15, we say light, 15-30 moderate, and over 30 severe. When it is mild, patient relatives notice less difference. We have very interesting patients. He wakes up a few hours after going to bed at night. He went to many doctors, was given sleeping pills and did not find a cure for his problem. We found that she had a mild sleep apnea. When we treated it, it stopped waking up. We see problems such as waking up at night and not being able to sleep in our mild and moderate patients.SLEEP APNEA TREATMENTIf the discomfort is mild or moderate, surgical treatment is in question. Especially if there is a stricture. This is more preferred in children. If there is a condition that blocks the adenoid, throat passage, taking it causes it to expand. Apart from that, we provide device therapy. We breathe air from the hose into the throat. This helps keep the airway open. While this may sound awkward, it is not. After using it for a few nights, you don't feel its presence or absence. Especially patients with heart failure need urgent treatment.When sleep apnea is not treated, it causes blood pressure, heart failure, and even sudden death during sleep. Especially patients with high blood pressure and heart failure need urgent treatment. Especially patients with heart failure need urgent treatment. Sleep apnea can lead to diabetes. There is a treatment for this with diabetes medications, but since the main problem is sleep apnea, it cannot be fully treated. People with sleep apnea cannot lose weight by dieting. These patients lose weight only after treatment. After treatment, we can see our patients who reduce their diabetes medication, stop their blood pressure medication, and lose weight. Since it is a disorder that seriously affects the person's cardiovascular system and metabolism, its treatment should not be neglected.
  • How should a healthy life and regular exercise be?
    Exercising regularly not only provides a healthier life, but also contributes to a longer lifespan. Although our bodies are built to move, the vast majority of us spend the day sitting. We can list 10 important reasons for doing sports; First of all, it causes an increase in our energy. During exercise, more blood is pumped to the body, as the heartbeat accelerates, and the oxygen going to the cells increases.

It increases the flexibility of the body and helps to increase mobility. Improves balance and concentration. It causes us to be purified from toxins. Makes a healthy and better life possible.
  • How often do I need to replace my mask and device filters?
    Nasal (nasal) and mouth-nose (ora-nasal) masks used in CPAP and BPAP devices can generally be used by the patient for up to 1 year. In many countries, reimbursement institutions and health insurers accept the renewal of PAP masks, tubing and filters every 6 months. In our country, the general acceptance has been determined as 1 year. This period is sufficient for most patients if a good mask selection is made and used under appropriate conditions. If the condition of the mask looks very good, it is possible to use it for more than 1 year. One thing to be aware of is that in many masks used for more than 1 year, unwanted air leaks that the patient is not aware of increase. This amount of leakage can also be determined from the reports of the recording PAP devices. It has been determined that the sleep quality of the majority of the patients who regularly renew their masks increases and they use their devices more comfortably and more harmoniously. The cleaning and replacement time of the filter of each PAP (CPAP-APAP-BPAP) device may be different. Be sure to refer to the section on filter replacement and cleaning in the user manual given to you with your device. For example, if you forget to clean a filter that is recommended to be cleaned once a week for 1 or 2 years, you will reduce the life of your device and cause it to malfunction.
  • Air is escaping from my mask. What should I do?
    There can be various reasons for air leakage from the mask. Air leakage from the mask occurs in 2 ways. The first one is an air leak that always occurs and is desired through very small holes on the mask made specifically for this job. It usually does not bother the user. There are air outlet areas specially designed for each mask so that the user does not breathe again. The main thing is the air leaks caused by the part of the mask that comes into contact with the face, which we usually encounter as a reason for complaint. When faced with this situation, the first things you should pay attention to are: Have you placed your mask on your head properly? Is the mask head tight enough? Do you see a deformation on the mask? Have you been using your mask for more than 1 year? Is your mask a model in a size and design suitable for your face and nose? According to your answers to these questions, you will find the source of the problem yourself. For more detailed information, you can get help from your supplier or contact our company.
  • I cannot use my CPAP device. What should I do?
    Wrong choices made while procuring the CPAP device may have made it difficult to use the device. First of all, we need to identify where the problem is. Then you should research the solution possibilities of this problem and make the most ideal choice for yourself. Your device is a treatment tool recommended by your doctor for the solution of life-threatening breathing problems during sleep. Do not easily give up on your PAP device, which is the solution to such an important inconvenience, due to some incompatibilities arising from use and which can usually be resolved. Finding the source of the problem often takes priority over finding the right solution. The main reasons that make the use of the CPAP device difficult are: 1) Discomforts caused by the mask: Correct selection of mask is very important for facilitating the use of CPAP device and increasing sleep comfort. Many companies that sell PAP devices may not have various mask options. In this case, when you buy your device, you may not be able to determine what other mask options are and whether there is a mask that is more suitable for your nose and face structure. This problem is a situation that patients frequently encounter. If you think that the reason you cannot use the device is due to the mask, we recommend that you contact our company. 2) Difficulty in exhaling against pressure: BiPAP (BPAP) devices are the first products that have been released to the market with 2 different (bi-level) pressure settings during inhalation and exhalation to increase the ease of use of the constant pressure CPAP device. With the developing technology, automatic CPAP (APAP) and automatic BPAP devices, EPR and Flex technologies that automatically reduce exhalation pressure, and PAP therapy devices that increase the exhalation comfort of the patients have been put into the service of Sleep Apnea patients. If your device does not have the comfort features above, you are more likely to have difficulty breathing. Because the comfort features we mentioned above allow the pressure to be changed automatically in accordance with the natural breathing patterns of the patients. In scientific studies, it has been determined that PAP devices with EPR – Flex technology increase the device usage time during sleep by approximately 25% compared to constant pressure devices. 3) Dry mouth and nose: If you cannot use your device due to the complaint of dryness in the mouth and nose during CPAP use, it is necessary to determine the cause of the dryness first. Unwanted air leakage escaping from your mask can cause an extra air flow and can cause drying. In this case, change your mask first. Air leaks from the mouth during sleep can cause dryness. This complaint may continue for the first few days-weeks in new device users and may subside spontaneously in the following months. If your complaints do not decrease and prevent you from using the device, using your device with a mouth-nose mask suitable for you can eliminate mouth air leaks. If you are using the device in an environment where the ambient air is dry, you can first make the air of the environment where the device is used more humid with a humidifier. There are Heated Humidifier units that you can preferably add to all PAP devices. If you buy a heated humidifier suitable for the model you are using from the company you supply your device from, you will humidify the air you breathe more than the ambient air. Heated air hoses, which are preferably used in PAP devices, are also important tools that increase humidification efficiency. Some of the drugs you use for other diseases can also cause dry mouth. If you attribute the cause of your dry mouth to the medications you have used, first consult your doctor who is following your disease and get their advice. You can easily test whether the device provides a benefit by increasing the humidity of the room in which it works. If possible, you can try to reduce your complaint by adding a heated humidifier to your device. As with any complaints about your health, get the advice of your doctor who follows your disease. 4) Other reasons: There may also be problems that are not encountered very often, apart from the reasons we have tried to explain above, that affect your compliance with the CPAP device. You can also try to get information from scientific content sites and patient forums that you can access over the internet. We recommend that you be very careful in your research to increase your knowledge, the solution to another patient may not be suitable for you. First of all, we recommend that you identify the cause of the incompatibility and get support from experts in this regard.
