SoeMac as an alternative therapy for chronic breathing conditions

Our users tell us that they breathe more easily each night, and they can manage the impact of their COPD each day better

Breathe. Sleep. Live. Better.


How SoeMac has helped people with COPD

SoeMac has helped to improve the efficiency of people's breathing whilst they are asleep at night, enhancing how their bodies utilise available oxygen. It’s designed to help people with serious breathing problems to breathe more freely, maximising the value of each of breath, so that they can get a better night’s sleep, and help them reduce the impact of their COPD. It can be used safely to support other forms of treatment.

95% of COPD sufferers who are using SoeMac have told us that they see the following benefits:

  • Clears excess mucus from the lungs
  • Enables a deeper, more productive breathing pattern
  • Reduces the feeling of gasping for air, spluttering, and coughing
  • Provides a better quality of sleep
  • Reduces the number of nighttime wakings
  • Reduces any feelings of anxiety often associated with poor breathing by improving the quality of their sleep
  • Improving energy levels during the day, as a result of having had a better night's sleep
  • Supports other treatments safely, such as Oxygen Therapy, without any intervention

SoeMac is a CE Registered, Class 1 Medical Device.

Please note - some of our users with more serious breathing conditions find it can take a little longer than 30 days before they feel the full benefit of SoeMac. This is entirely normal.

What is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease?

COPD is a type of obstructive lung disease characterised by chronically poor airflow, and it typically worsens over time. It is the umbrella term for a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airway disease.

The main symptoms include shortness of breath, cough, and sputum production. Tobacco smoking is the most common cause of COPD.  Worldwide, COPD affects 329 million people or nearly 5% of the population. In 2011, it ranked as the fourth-leading cause of death, killing over 3 million people. The number of deaths is projected to increase due to higher smoking rates and an ageing population in many countries.

The main cause of COPD is smoking because it inflames the lungs. The likelihood of getting COPD increases the more you smoke and the longer you have been smoking. Over time, the lungs become increasingly inflamed and scarred, the walls of the airways thicken and damage is caused to the air sacs in the lungs, which lose their elasticity.

COPD may also be caused by fumes, dust, air pollution and genetic diseases, but this is far less common than nicotine.

What are the symptoms?

Shortness of breath, wheezing, tightness in the chest, and a persistent cough. These symptoms will typically worsen over time. If COPD is severe, it is also possible to experience weight loss, swelling of the ankles and loss of appetite.

How can it be treated?

Although COPD is a chronic illness, there are a number of treatment options that can help to improve the symptoms.

  • Smokers should try to give up smoking as this will reduce the chance of the condition getting worse
  • Managing weight and eating healthily will help to prevent infections and keep lungs healthy
  • Regular exercise and a good night’s sleep will help to maintain energy levels
  • If oxygen levels become too low, this is when oxygen treatment may be necessary
  • With a greater understanding of your breathing disorder or breathing problems, along with an accurate medical diagnosis and effective treatment, you can regain control of your life. Controlling your disorder on a day-to-day basis is crucial to living an active, productive life

More Testimonials

“I've been diagnosed with severe lung fibrosis, which means the oxygen levels in my blood can fall to very low levels. During the day I use a mobile oxygen supply to help me breathe, but nights were always a problem and I used to wake several times every night gasping for air.

Then I was given a SoeMac which I plugged it into a socket by my bedside. The results were instant and dramatic. For the first time in months I was able to sleep through the night, breathing normally.

It's difficult to believe that a device so small and unobtrusive has had such a huge impact on my life. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone suffering from breathing-related conditions.”

David Thomas on Lung Fibrosis

“I suffer with Emphysema, and as a consequence, my blood oxygen levels are too low. I purchased a SoeMac in May to see if this would help my condition, and I am really pleased to tell you that I have “more get up and go” and don’t feel as fatigued as I normally do. This is great for me, but most amazing is that I saw the nurse this week. My blood oxygen levels have been around 92/93 for quite a while, and the nurse checks these on a monthly basis.

Since using the SoeMac, they are now up to 98, and we are very pleased, as they have never been that high since we started monitoring them. The nurse wants to know more about the SoeMac, and I told her how good it has been for me. Thank you.”

Eunice Bracken on Emphysema
