Making ventilation livABLE

Anna steps out the front door and toward the mailbox. “I love being able to go for walks outside again,” she smiles as she comes back with a package and several letters. Anna has Stage 3 COPD, an obstructive lung disease where the airflow to the lungs is partially blocked. Anna experienced shortness of breath, and even the smallest activities were all but impossible. “I spent most of every day on the couch,” says Anna, “I couldn’t even do simple things like laundry or dishes.” Her husband took over all the household chores. Then, in February, Anna was fitted with wearable ventilation and her life changed.

Now, with wearable open ventilation, Anna can move around her house easily and has been able to go on short walks with her husband.
