The Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), medical devices in the United Kingdom, approves of them, has given the green light to use the device. As of next week, Mercedes, along with the firm, Oxford Optronics, thousand per day of production.

the CPAP’s distributing a constant air-oxygen mixture into the nose and mouth, allowing the airway to remain open, and the amount of oxygen in the lung. It allows the patient the freedom to move around while on a breathing machine, a strong sedation is needed, as well as the patient through a tube in the windpipe, on the machine is bound to. Reports from Italy indicate that approximately half of the patients with the help of a CPAP are more the use of invasive devices can be avoided.

For people who are seriously ill have to stay with traditional beademingstoestellen one. “The new devices will be helping to save lives by making sure that the limited number of respirators will only be used for the worst of the sick,” says professor Mervyn Singer, an intensive-care consultant.

some of the health care institutions in Italy and Belgium, already have such ademhalingshulpmiddelen designed by duikmaskers to adapt to it.
