Causes of Neuromuscular Diseases:
Home Ventilator Care
If a neuromuscular disease impacts your respiratory system and makes it difficult to breathe, non-invasive home ventilation (NHV) can help by moving oxygen directly into your lungs. Our NHV program provides state-of-the-art ventilator equipment and clinical monitoring. Lincare's mission is simple: Provide the quality care you deserve so you can maintain your independence and live each day to the fullest.
If your condition makes it difficult to breathe during the night, our bilevel devices can help treat many symptoms while you sleep. Patients following this treatment may benefit from uninterrupted sleep, increased alertness, and improved cognitive function.
Oxygen therapy is a common treatment option for COPD. Helping your body get the oxygen it needs to function is important to managing your illness. If your practitioner prescribes oxygen therapy for COPD, Lincare will provide 24/7 treatment support and oxygen equipment designed to fit your needs.
Enteral Nutrition Therapy
Malnutrition is a dangerous side effect of dysphagia, difficulty swallowing, that can lead to other severe medical problems. Enteral therapy is a useful option if your diet has been disrupted by swallowing difficulties. We offer a full medical, nutritional support program designed together with you and your practitioner. Our enteral therapeutics include various nutrition products and a wide range of feeding tube supplies and equipment suited to your needs.
