There are over 5 million people with asthma in the UK, and this disease causes over a thousand deaths every year. While medical treatments for asthma are widely available, air purifiers are slowly emerging as innovative devices that can also play an important health role in the life of people with asthma.
AIRVIA Medical Air Purifiers can become the best ally of adults and children with asthma.
Asthma, a disease directly related to air quality
Asthma is a term derived from ancient Greek ἄσθμα or "ásthma", which simply means "difficult breathing". People affected by asthma usually suffer from significant breathing difficulties, which can range from light difficulty breathing to a full-range asthma attack, a medical emergency not to be taken lightly. It can be in the form of intermittent asthma or persistent asthma.
Only 45% of asthmatics surveyed in 2019 by Asthma & Allergies were aware of the close link between asthma and allergies. And yet, it is estimated that 80% of asthma attacks are due to the presence of allergens. There is still a lot to do in terms of education when it comes to asthma. Simple actions such as protecting oneself from allergens could avoid allergic reactions and dangerous asthma crises.
High-quality and high-efficiency air purifiers such as the AIRVIA Medical Air Purifiers can keep your indoor air clean and prevent a lot of allergic reactions. In patients with chronic asthma, air purifiers are true well-being partners.
Air purification to fight asthma
Asthmatics often have strong sensitivities to allergens present in the air. And allergens are many that can cause respiratory reactions: pollens, dust mites, dog or cat hair, tobacco smoke, chemical pollutants, mould, fungi, viruses and bacteria. All these substances often pollute our indoor air and can lead to allergic reactions and in time to respiratory diseases. Whether you are asthmatic or not, all these particles of pollution present in your indoor air will have a negative effect on your health, especially in the long term.
Air purifiers can rid the indoor air of all these natural or artificial components that vitiate it and make it harmful for all occupants. AIRVIA Medical has combined several advanced technologies in its products to filter, trap and destroy all these harmful substances.
AIRVIA Medical Air Purifiers: the best ally of people with asthma
AIRVIA Medical Air Purifiers take advantage of all the best current filtration technologies in order to perfectly purify the air of a 1000 ft² (100m²) space in a few minutes, and in a single pass.
For example, we use HEPA filters which meet the strictest European standards and capture 99.95% of particles with a diameter greater than or equal to 0.3 μm. They are made of activated charcoal and several layers of bamboo fiber, to bring you the best of human technology combines with nature’s powers.
We also use ultraviolet rays to eliminate germs in a process called "photocatalysis". Without making any noise or emitting any harmful gas, using simple radiations at just the right energy level, photocatalysis kills germs, microbes, fungi, bacteria and sterilizes your indoor air.
Finally, AIRVIA Medical selected ionization to continue the fight against particles. This process generates negative ions that bonds with particles of pollution, which are naturally positively charged particles. Our latest generation device can produce a negative ion density greater than 20 million pc / cm3. Thanks to this; all polluted particles either fall to the ground or are destroyed.
Air purifiers can truly improve the life of all people with asthma. Our products are compact, energy efficient, quiet and have impressive air purification powers.
