As a physician practicing at high altitude, you are familiar with the necessity for supplemental oxygen. This can be especially true at night, when upper airways narrow and reflex-driven pharyngeal dilation is reduced . Nocturnal oxygen desaturation can lead to surges in blood pressure, interrupted sleep, and high altitude periodic breathing. Sometimes simply sleeping in an oxygenated environment for at least eight hours can restore blood oxygen levels in a way that provides relief throughout the day.
When your patients need nocturnal oxygen supplementation, the ideal choice is whole-room oxygenation. With an altitude simulation system from Altitude Control Technology, your patients set their desired altitude and we do the rest. There are no cannulas to replace or disruptive noises to reduce compliance. Sensors monitor the oxygen content, air quality, and atmospheric pressure to ensure that oxygen is consistently maintained in the sleeping space. Your patients sleep comfortably and wake rested and ready to enjoy the day.
