On July 18, 2020, under the guidance of Henan Provincial People’s Hospital, Beijing Yaguo Technology Co., Ltd. and Henan Zeyang Medical Equipment Sales Co., Ltd. jointly held the “Respiratory Rehabilitation Treatment New Technology Forum” at the Great Wall Hotel in Zhengzhou, Henan Province.
According to Professor Zhang Xiao Ju, director of the Department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine of Henan Provincial People’s Hospital “COPD and lung cancer are the most common and frequent diseases that endanger people’s lives and health. Strengthen their early screening, standardized diagnosis and treatment plays a key role. Therefore, it’s important to apply cutting-edge technology and effective treatment to CODP patients”.
At the Forum, Huang Xingzhou Sales Manager of Yaguo Technology South China, gave a detailed introduction and introduced Respiratory Neuromuscular Stimulator.
She explained how neuromuscular electrical stimulation is used for pulmonary Rehabilitation treatment of patients with respiratory impairment, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension, thoracoabdominal surgery, etc. It can also be used for pulmonary rehabilitation in critically ill patients, and treats ICU acquired weakness.
“Commonly used techniques for pulmonary rehabilitation includes endurance training, resistance training, upper limb training, lower limb training, respiratory muscle exercise, and neuromuscular electrical stimulation. Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation is an alternative rehabilitation technique that can cause muscle contraction and train selected muscles to improve muscle strength and increase the patient’s exercise capacity”. Dr. Xingang Hu from Respiratory Diseases Association of Henan Medical Association.
“Respiratory neuromuscular electrical stimulation is used in the treatment of two clinical symptoms of ventilator-related diaphragmatic dysfunction and ICU-acquired weakness (ICU-AW). The impact on patients is meaningful. In addition, the synergistic effect of electrical stimulation of inspiratory muscle and expiratory muscle is more conducive to transverse diaphragm activity. The increase in tidal volume improves the respiratory function, exercise capacity and quality of life of ICU patients. This is crucial for patients with restricted movement”. Member Li Cheng, head of the Henan Provincial Health Commission and Henan Provincial People’s Hospital for non-invasive ventilation.
Thanks to Henan Provincial People’s Hospital, for its strong support to the “Respiratory Rehabilitation New Technology Forum”. Doctors and medical staff participating in the forum have a better understanding of the treatment technology of the respiratory system and critical diseases, have a better understanding of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and learned more about the theory of pulmonary rehabilitation. Yaguo go further in the innovation and development of chronic respiratory disease management solutions.
