Jason Nikouyeh: Preventing decubitus ulcers the Duramedix way

Duramedix Healthcare and its Chief Operating Officer, Jason Nikouyeh, recognize the primacy of decubitus ulcer prevention in the management of clients who are rendered immobile by their primary medical condition.

Decubitus ulcers, also known as pressure ulcers, are secondary lesions caused by unrelieved pressure on soft tissues overlying bony prominences. This pressure obstructs the blood flow to the superficial tissues, causing ischemia, leading to tissue damage and ultimately, necrosis (or tissue death). The outset of the ulceration is almost imperceptible, initially starting as a red, painful area. However, if the pressure remains unrelieved, the necrosis can reach as far as the subcutaneous tissues, the muscles, and the bones, causing an irreparable crater that is highly susceptible to infection.

Though decubitus ulcers may be prevented by faithfully following a turning schedule, Duramedix Healthcare COO Jason Nikouyeh offers an effective recourse that is less tedious than manual patient turning.

Duramedix currently offers a line of specialty mattresses specifically designed to relieve pressure from pressure points to patients who are prone to the development of decubitus ulcers.

These mattresses are made from materials such as gel bladders, air cells, and nylon covers that help ease the pressure from bony prominences, mitigating the risk for ulcer formation. These mattresses also work in a way that weight capacity is improved and that pressure redistribution is optimized. Covers are also designed to reduce friction and shear—the two forces that greatly contribute to the formation of decubitus ulcers.

Duramedix Healthcare offers a wide range of high-end but affordable medical supplies. To access more information on the company and its COO, Jason Nikouyeh, visit www.duramedix.com.

Jason Nikouyeh: Gearing up for diabetic neuropathy

Although diabetic neuropathy poses no direct threat to life, it can still result to destructive complications. This latest blog for Jason Nikouyeh discusses one of the prophylactic devices being used by diabetic patients: diabetic shoes.

Diabetic neuropathy is a disease that results from the destruction of the nerves in the peripheral nervous system. In diabetes, a person’s blood becomes more viscous due to the increased systemic sugar level, resulting to a microvascular injury that cuts off blood supply to the nerves, thereby damaging them, resulting to neuropathy. Because peripheral innervation is made useless, the patient cannot feel any sensation, even those that are supposed to elicit the most stinging pain in a healthy person.

This sensory deprivation can cause ulcers within hours of continuous pressure. If left untreated, the wound may ulcerate further and become gangrenous, necessitating amputation of the entire foot.

Jason Nikouyeh, COO of Duramedix Healthcare, ensures that patients only receive prime results from the best medical supplies available in the market.

Diabetic shoes, also known as extra depth shoes, are specially designed to reduce the risk of skin breakdown in diabetics. They are also designed to support the plantar surface of the feet, cushioning these pressure points from friction.

The insoles of diabetic shoes are made of aliplast or plastazote. These materials have been tested to be less abrasive to the skin than conventional materials. The protection and cushioning that diabetic shoes provide reduces friction and evenly distributes the weight throughout.

Diabetic neuropathy, though treatable to some extent, has been found to be incurable in spite of all the medical and technological advancement. This dearth prompts practitioners and industry professionals, like Jason Nikouyeh, to aggressively reinforce the medical maxim, “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure,” to ensure that diabetic patients attain the highest quality of living possible.

Duramedix Healthcare offers a wide range of high-quality, Medicare-approved diabetic shoes that fit your budget. For more information regarding Jason Nikouyeh and the products of Duramedix Healthcare, visit www.duramedix.com.

Jason Nikouyeh: Duramedix Healthcare and the importance of patient education

As the Chief Operating Officer of Duramedix Healthcare, Jason Nikouyeh supervises the company’s day-to-day processes to ensure that the medical supplies imported and supplied come directly from reputable manufacturers that specialize in the execution and design of innovative products manufactured using the latest technology available. By doing this, customers are assured of only the best medical supplies available in the market.

The medical equipment supplier, however, must go beyond the role of a dealer. The supplier must acknowledge the fact that patients’ first encounter with medical equipment can be an incredibly nerve-wracking experience, which may lead to inefficiency that could ultimately result to the failure of the entire treatment regimen.

Jason Nikouyeh recognizes this crucial aspect of medical management. That is why in Duramedix Healthcare, patient education is an integral part of the process.

Duramedix Healthcare focuses its attention on patient education and product training, making sure that the customers’ every need, apprehension, or question is addressed. The company’s staff takes time to review each product with the client, following them up and reinforcing them as necessary to make sure that expected outcomes are met.

Doing this encourages patient compliance, which is greatly contributory to the overall success of medical management. Pamphlets and instructional materials can never take the place of personal attention being provided by the right people.

More than mere sales, genuine heart in healthcare provision is critical to the art and science of saving, preserving, and improving lives.

Duramedix Healthcare Chief Operating Officer Jason Nikouyeh makes sure that the company values its clients the way it values itself. Founded in 2006, Duramedix Healthcare rose from a budding company to one of the biggest and most successful medical supplies provider in the country. While good marketing and business approaches pushed the company to the top of the industry, Nikouyeh’s emphasis on customer service and giving value to clients probably explains more the reason for the company’s success.

In fact, Duramedix Healthcare takes pride on the fact that it “has been satisfying customers” in its provision of “medical equipment, supplies, and healthcare products to patients nationwide.” Under Jason Nikouyeh’s guidance, the company continues on providing quality products and ensuring “positive outcomes” for the patients.

Aside from its complete line of quality home medical equipment, supplies, and healthcare products offered at different cost-effective prices, the company also tries to put premium on the quality of service that it provides. As much as possible, the company wants to give the best, whether it’s a product or a service.

An anonymous client’s testimonial posted in the company website probably attests to this fact:

“I had no idea that my insurance would pay for my diabetic testing supplies. Best of all, I no longer worry about running out; Duramedix reminds me when it's time to re-order. Thanks so much for everything Duramedix!”

That probably says it all. For Nikouyeh, Duramedix Healthcare is not only doing business; it’s fulfilling a mission.
