Quiet breathing aid for medical use

Loss of breath during sleep, also known as sleep apnea, affects many people over 40 years of age. A proven form of therapy supports the body's own respiratory reflexes through the controlled injection of air into the lungs. A highly dynamic centrifugal fan now supports breathing through the controlled supply of fresh air.

Loss of breath during sleep, also known as sleep apnea, affects many people over 40 years of age. The number of people affected is in the double-digit percentage range, the ratio of men to women is about 5 to 1, daytime fatigue and attention deficit are the obvious effects of the disease. If untreated, it can also lead to hidden complications such as high blood pressure, cardiac insufficiency (diminished cardiac output), heart rhythm disturbances or myocardial infarction. A proven form of therapy supports the body’s own respiratory reflexes through the controlled injection of air into the lungs. A new, highly dynamic centrifugal fan now supports breathing through the controlled supply of fresh air. The lightweight, efficient small fan is also well suited for long battery operation, for example for a mobile sleep therapy device. Other applications in medical technology include mechanical intensive care ventilation, mucus secretion mobilization and mobile air filter technology, e.g. respiratory protection devices.
