Could this be your solution to numbness, tingling, or burning pain? 5-lb portable oxygen concentrator gives gift of freedom If you, or someone you love, use oxygen therapy then you know how limiting oxygen tank systems can be. A new technology gives users the freedom to move about without the typical restrictions of equipment weight or length of time. Gordon Mori, CEO of

Our goal is to help people limited by their medical conditions.” Gordon Mori CEO, Mori Medical

Mori Medical Equipment Inc in Vista says he started carrying these lighter, more portable oxygen concentrators (POC’s) because they truly do improve the quality of life. What is a portable oxygen concentrator? A portable oxygen concentrator (POC) makes its own oxygen, and unlike a regular oxygen concentrator it is much lighter and more portable. Typical oxygen equipment can weigh 20 pounds or more making it hard to move around. As a result, Mori said, many people feel tied to their equipment at home. The advantage of this new technology is that the equipment is so light (from 3 to 10 pounds depending on the manufacturer, model and features) that people can actually carry it over their shoulder like a book bag. “People who haven’t seen a POC are always surprised at the portability of this new technology”, Mori says. One model, the FreeStyle by AirSep, weighs just 4.4 pounds and comes with an over-theshoulder bag. The shoulder bag carries the POC and extra batteries for all-day events. Another model, by SimplyGo, weighs just 10 pounds and can provide continuous flow. POC’s are becoming immensely popular for people who like to travel. They are now accepted by

the FAA for commercial airlines as well as cruise lines, trains and buses. For those who like to stay closer to home, a POC can make gardening possible, or allow users to attend sporting events or family outings. It plugs into a regular outlet for charging at home, in a car or a hotel and can still be used when it is charging. Another solution that Mori offers is the HomeFill system that can provide an unlimited supply of portable oxygen tanks, M6, M9, and the ultra compact M4. Mori Medical Equipment Inc. is a family owned and operated business founded in 2011 to provide North County San Diego residents a more personal resource for medical equipment purchase and rental including wheelchairs, electric beds, breathing equipment and related items. They are members of The Joint Commission, the prestigious national organization that accredits and certifies health care organizations in the United States. Mori Medical is approved by Medicare, Medi-Cal and LIHP and they stand behind everything they sell. Mori Medical has a 24 hour customer service line. They offer local repair and maintenance and have an equipment warehouse located in Vista. The Mori Medical staff sets up and takes down equipment and provides equipment training in the comfort of your home as needed. They also have a certified respiratory therapist on staff. Mori Medical represents four of the top manufacturers of POC’s in the United States. Mr. Mori says that it is important to match the right equipment with an individual’s lifestyle and needs. “Our goal” he says,” is to help people limited by their medical conditions to have the freedom to enjoy life to the fullest.” For more information, you can contact Mori Medical Equipment Inc. at (760) 659-4200 or email Mr. Mori at

Do you have any of the following symptoms? Pins and needles feeling? Numbness in the hands or feet? Tingling or burning sensations? Weakness in the arms or legs? Sharp shooting or burning pains? If so, you may have a condition called Peripheral Neuropathy. Numbness, tingling, and pain are an extremely annoying problem. It may come and go...interrupt your sleep...and even make your arms or legs feel weak at times. Maybe you’ve even been to other doctors and they claim all the tests indicate you should feel fine. More Drugs Are Not The Solution. A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, antiseizure mediations, and antidepressants — all of which can have serious side effects. My name is Dr. Jeff Listiak. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than 6 years. Neuropathy can be caused by Diabetes, Chemotherapy, Toxins, etc. It may also be compounded by

poor posture or a degenerating spine stressing the nerves. The good news is that NeuropathyDR™ combination treatments have proven effective in helping patients with these health problems. Here’s what one of my patients had to say: “I had been feeling very sharp pains in my feet… they just felt like they were on fire. I just couldn’t stand it… every night for the last year or two. I’m so excited today to tell Dr Jeff that four days in a row I have felt no pain whatsoever.” — Marilyn You could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating and life-disrupting problems.
