The Use of a Trilogy Machine

My sister has been on the trilogy for almost two years now, as I'm writing this she is her last few hours of life. Her doctor have given her 6 months to live on at least 4 occasions. First started about 6 years ago. This machine has helped to keep her around far longer than anyone could have guessed. She is on 30lpm @90%. She has had to be on the trilogy or an airvo (which she use so she could eat). We have found this to be a wonderful machine. What we found when we were trying to get one is that they are very difficult to get for every day home use. You have to get them through a medical phacilialty. Nursing home, hospice or hospital. It is very much like a ventalor but is NON-invasive.

Welcome to Connect, @bowens. Thank you for sharing your insights on the Trilogy Machine as you accompany your sister in her final hours. Are you in a hospice setting or at home with her?

I’m at a nursing home owed by the VA don’t know if they recognized or approved of that trilogy yet

Bowens, I hope you and your family are well. Thank you for sharing your sister’s experience. My mom has just been prescribed trilogy. Her health was very dire so we have been so hopeful for this “new” treatment plan.
