HEPA Filtration For Asthmatics

Asthmatics suffer from airborne allergens more often than people with just normal allergies to pollen, ragweed, animal dander, etc. For many asthmatics a small level of dust or airborne particulate can trigger an asthma attack and the only relief comes in the form of an inhaler or other quick acting medication. 

Allergy sufferers can take a number of over the counter medications to help relieve symptoms especially the runny nose, irritated eyes and general stuffed head feeling that are very typical. Being in an environment where they amount of allergens can be reduced will significantly help reduce or eliminate the typical reactions associated with allergy sufferers. 

Pure Air Systems has been making HEPA based, fan powered air filtration systems since 1985. For over 39 years people around the U.S and overseas have been able to use these high performance air filtration systems from general duty air particulate removal to surgical suite operations and everything in between.  The ability to use these systems with standard forced air ducted heating/cooling systems has enabled thousands of allergy sufferers to have almost complete relief when they are in their homes or offices. The HEPA filters are commercial grade and certified at 99.99% at 0.3 microns and larger. The three stage filtration system also includes a dual layer ring panel filter and carbon media filter for odors and gases.

For asthmatics, the PAS line of HEPA systems has proved to be one of the few HEPA based air filtration systems that can both  reduce the levels of airborne particulate while also pressurizing an entire house, office area or large room. This highly effective system has shown to significantly reduce the need for or use of inhalers for the area being actively filtered. Pure Air Systems also makes portable units that can handle an individual room or small area. These are perfect for a child’s or adult’s bedroom or small house or condo.

Air Filtration For Asthmatics

For most individuals the ability to breathe is so automatic we almost never even think about the process. Only when we are subjected to a high amount of airborne dust or particulate or near smoke do we find it somewhat difficult to breathe.

For people who suffer from Asthma or other respiratory dysfunctions the ability to breathe normally is not taken for granted. They are very aware that at anytime they may suffer from an Asthma attack or their ability to breathe due to either their illness, airborne particulate or both.

Pure Air Systems has been manufacturing commercial grade HEPA based air filtration systems since 1985. These fan powered units are designed to work in concert with any type of HVAC system or as stand-alone units. And, these systems utilize the ECM variable speed drive motors so air volume control can be finite and they can be used anywhere in the world.

The PAS units can be attached to almost any home HVAC unit and provide a very high degree of airborne particulate removal of the size of the particulate that affects those individuals with respiratory dysfunctions.

The HEPA filters used in the line of systems offered by Pure Air Systems are called scanned HEPA filters. These filters have an initial efficiency of 99.99% at 0.3 microns and become more efficiency as they begin to collect the particulate.  You can see a 20 micron sized particle with the naked eye and these particles are normally aspirated in and then expelled easily.  The smaller particles, those less than 10 microns in size are easily trapped in the mucus membranes of the lungs and can cause irritation. These are the particles that create real health issues for those who suffer from Asthma.

Rock, Paper, Scissors!

Remember when games were so simple all you needed was your hands to play. Rock, Paper, Scissors was one of those games and is still played today in various forms. The rules were simple, you could play with anyone at anytime and you didn’t need to buy anything. And most importantly, the game was the same no matter where in the world you played it.

Our world has become more complex with the ability to get information on anything at anytime and get at least 50 different versions of the same truth? Nothing is what it seems, and everyone who can write a Blog or story on-line is now an expert ( yours truly included). As a result, finding a TRUE expert is very difficult. This is especially true in areas where people are looking for relief from certain health issues. The amount of resources and alternatives in “health technology” is enough to drive you nuts.

For example, people who suffer from certain allergies or asthma are presented with hundreds of potential medical remedies along with hundreds of alternative or “holistic” remedies, each spouting their overall capabilities and references showing that they do work.  Even the most intelligent and resource knowledgeable individual can get confused with all this data.

The best way to separate the “wheat from the chaff” as they say, is to do some hard research, find who is using the medical treatment or device and then  evaluate the potential based upon the results from those individuals who share  the same problems. It is time consuming but with the advent of “Facebook” and “Twitter” you can now connect to thousands of people in days who can provide you some immediate insight.

There are many websites out there that can assist you in finding information that is specific to your needs and medical issues. Conversely, there are also thousands of websites that will provide misleading or inaccurate data and again you will need to validate the information. Then there are websites like the one available from Pure Air Systems, that provides both technical data, valid references and a generous amount of objective data on medical conditions and alternative methods for dealing with allergies and asthma related conditions.

Like the game Rock, Paper, Scissors, the Pure Air Systems website makes it easy and simple to find the information you need and that is appropriate for your particular situation.  “Play On”.  Please go to our website at: www.pureairsystems.com
