RSVP Home care offers ventilators for patients with Chronic Lung Disease (CLD). CLD is a general term used to describe long-term respiratory problems in premature infants. It can also refer to Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD). Newborns who use mechanical ventilators and extra oxygen can be at risk to develop CLD. RSVP Home Care offers respiratory therapy and medical equipment for patients with CLD. We can provide you with everything you need to take care of your infant with CLD.

Risk Factors for Chronic Lung Disease

Premature babies often require extra oxygen and ventilation. This can sometimes lead to injury to the lungs and small air sacs. If your child was born with underdeveloped lungs or required mechanical ventilation or an endotracheal tube, they may be a risk for CLD. Here is a list of risk factors:

Treating Chronic Lung Disease

Your doctor will determine the best treatment for your child based on age at birth, overall health, extent of the disease and other factors. Your respiratory therapist will work closely with your physician. Often the goal is to have your child breathing without extra oxygen or mechanical ventilators. Your child’s treatment may include:

Equipment and Ventilators For Patients with Chronic Lung Disease

Some babies with CLD require mechanical ventilators for several months. Many children no longer need oxygen after one year but each child is individual. RSVP Home Care offers home health care from licensed respiratory therapist. We also offer ventilators for patients with Chronic Lung Disease as well as other medical equipment. Our therapists can train you about the ventilators and help you get used to using the equipment: extra oxygen and a pulse oximeter, mechanical ventilators and other medical equipment may be necessary. Our respiratory therapists are on-call 24/7 to help with any questions you have. If you have questions about ventilators for patients with Chronic Lung Disease or need to set up delivery, please call RSVP Home Care.
