Providers had to change business models, emphasize infection control, and deploy new technologies to maintain care.

John Medina, RRT, director of sales at CAIRE Inc., and David Lyman RRT, RRTSDS, vice president of VGM Respiratory, met with HMEB to discuss topics such as the impact of new variants, telehealth, frequency of RT check-ins, and the pandemic’s impact on other home oxygen patients.
