by in Health

respiratory2Respiratory equipment, such as medical compressors and ventilators, are very important. Now you may not think so much of them when you are younger, but as time moves on, you may need them. Those who suffer from things such as COPD and sleep apnea need then for sure. This equipment helps people to breathe properly and effectively. Those who suffer from COPD must assuredly need the respiratory equipment. These are things that the doctor prescribes to them.

So we all know that this equipment is good for those who need them. So let’s look at why you should rent this equipment, versus buying it.

1) Sometimes renting is a lot cheaper, especially if you only plan on short-term use.
What happens if you only need some of this equipment for a short period? If you buy it outright, you will be stuck with equipment that you don’t need after a while. So you need to take this into consideration.

When you don’t need it anymore, what will you do then? You could try to selling it. Do you know any one locally that will take it? Even if you do, will they take equipment that was once used. That’s another thing to think about. Most places will not take respiratory equipment that has been used before, especially ventilators. There are germs left over from before. There are some who don’t want to take the time to sterilize the machinery. Reason being, there is usually someone who needs it right away.

And even if you did sell it, who would want to buy it, especially something that is used?

2) If you rent the equipment you can return it the place you got it. And usually the place you rented it from, will take the time to sterilize things. That is part of their job description. With the company you rent the equipment from, you can work out some sort of arrangement. They know who you are, as opposed to someone who buys it from you off the streets.

3) It’s a good idea if you are going on vacation. You and your family might decide to go on vacation. What if Aunt Helen has something wrong with her lungs. She will need the equipment. She may not have needed it much at home lately, but she may need it for where you are going. Different climates create different situations for you and your body.

Rent some equipment to help her breathe better for a week or so, and you are good to go. It will make the vacation much more enjoyable for everyone, if Aunt Helen is able to enjoy her time there.
