第二个焦点会关注患上慢性阻塞性肺疾病(COPD)，渐冻症(MND)， 脊髓性肌萎缩症(SMA)， 进行性肌营养不良症(DMD)等慢性呼吸功能不全的患者，将所有相关的教育和专业知识信息纳入到Apps中，指导患者及其家属如何使用机械呼吸机，免插管抽痰机，氧气机等的在家患者。
Hospital at Home - Hospi8Home's mission is to build a FREE Apps that everyone can use to SEARCH, LOCATE and SCHEDULE a nearest helper to provide medical equipment support and assistance. This helper can be a home healthcare service provider, a donor or NGOs. The Apps will have 2 focus or stages.
First is to promote public awareness, how snoring can relate to high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes, etc; and how a simple sleep study at home can help to check the severity and if there an urgent need to have further diagnosis in the hospital as preventive measurement.
Second focus will be putting all the relevant educational and know-how information into the Apps, to guide the patient and their family members to manage the patient at home when using any life support medical equipment to aid respiration.
With this Apps crowdfunding project, I wish to promote awareness, knowledge sharing while connecting all important partners together and finally formed a hospice care at home online community to ease patient comfort and with better health-related quality of life.
I am a Registered Polysomnographic Technologist, spent 17 years working in medical device industry, dealing with patients and doctors whom specialize in Anaesthesiology, Otorhinolaryngology, Pediatric, Respiratory, Neurology, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Palliative Care, Sleep medicine, etc. I have a degree in BEc (International Economics), 4 lovely daughters and 2 newly adopted street dogs.
Throughout my career, I have been helping and providing many application training in sleep medicine, and mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit, respiratory clinic, sleep labs and palliative care unit for doctors, as well as home patients who required sleep diagnostic, CPAP, BiPAP, invasive and non-invasive ventilatory support.
Life will be more meaningful if we can help people. I hope my crowdfunding initiative for building this FREE app can provide a smart online platform for the Patients, Healthcare Professionals, Home Care Service Providers, NGOs and Donors to connect and contribute in order to enhance health-related quality of life for the patients to have Hospitalization at Home at relatively lower cost and hospital-acquired pneumonia risks.
