ED Pumps – How do i use it?

 

What is an ED Pump & how is it used?

The ED Pump is a plastic cylinder with a battery or manual pump, the open end is slid directly over the penis. The cylinder and pump are then used to create a vacuum to help the penis become erect. When erect: a constriction ring or band is slid off the cylinder and onto the erect penis. The constriction ring or band, helps maintain the erection during intercourse.

I see that you sell different models, what is the difference?

Offered are battery and manual pumps. Its user preference on the selection. New users tend to find the battery models easier, while more advance users like the ability of control, offered by the manual models. A number of kits are offered like the Encore Deluxe Ed Pump, this kit offers both a manual and battery pump in its kits.

How Well Do ED Pumps Work?

Recent studies suggest that about 50%-80% of men are satisfied with the results of ED Pumps. As with any other method of treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED), satisfaction rates may decrease with time.

There are drugs  like Viagra on the market today, Why use an ED Pump?

There are a number of reasons not to take Viagra or the other medications for ED. I have listed a number of reasons below.

1. Single tablets can cost 18.00 – 25.00 each. Insurance companys have placed restrictions on the units allowed and a growing number do not cover the cost at all. An ED pump is a one time cost from 100-400 depending on model.

2. Don’t take Viagra if you’re taking nitrate drugs for chest pain or heart problems.  This mix can cause a sudden and serious drop in blood pressure, making you feel dizzy and faint, and possibly bring on a heart attack or stroke.

3. In addition, for men who’ve had prostate surgery, a regimen of vacuum device usage is recommended – four or five times daily — to help increase the blood flow to the penis. It may take several months to work.

4. Taking is medication, as listed below for a another treatment.

Do not take Viagra if you are taking other drugs for erectile dysfunction, such as Stendra, Cialis, or Levitra.

Using these drugs with sildenafil is not recommended:

  • Cimetidine (Tagamet)
  • Bosentan (Tracleer)
  • Imatinib (Gleevec)
  • Nefazodone (Serzone)
  • St. John’s wort
  • Antibiotics: such as clarithromycin (Biaxin), erythromycin (EryPed 200, EryPed 400)
  • Antifungal medications: fluconazole (Diflucan), itraconazole (Sporanox)
  • Heart or blood pressure medications: amlodipine (Norvasc), amiodarone (Cordarone, Nexterone, Pacerone)
  • Hepatitis C medications: boceprevir (Victrelis)
  • HIV/AIDS medications: ritonavir (Norvir), amprenavir (Agenerase), atazanavir (Reyataz)
  • Seizure medications: carbamazepine (Tegretol), fosphenytoin (Cerebyx)
  • Tuberculosis medications: isoniazid (Isoniazid)

Viagra and Grapefruit

Avoid consuming grapefruit and grapefruit juice while taking sildenafil.

Grapefruit products can hinder the breakdown of sildenafil, causing it to be absorbed in larger quantities that can reach toxic levels.

 

Will my Insurance Cover ED Pumps or Vacuum Constriction Devices?

Generally no, Medicare has ended coverage as well as most insurance carriers, this action was taken as part of the Obamacare program. More for less!!

Impotence Treatments Using a ED Pump

Impotence or erectile dysfunction is a common problem, as unfortunately aging causes issues.  ED can also be caused by diseases, surgical complications, certain medications and even psychological and lifestyle factors. Impotence ED (erectile dysfunction is treatable, and treatment can be started at any age.

Luckily in today’s world, there  are many kinds of erectile dysfunction treatments. The best of these are selected by considering the severity, causes, and health of the patient.

Vacuum Therapy Pump (ED Pump)
A vacuum pump (penis pump) consists of a plastic cylinder which is placed over the penis. When air is sucked out from the device, a vacuum is created which forces a blood rush into the penis. The blood flow is obstructed by means of a tension band, which is applied to the base. Tension bands prevent the blood from draining rapidly and sustain the erection.

Medications
Certain expensive medications can also be used for impotence treatments. However the prescription cost is very expensive and not covered by most health plans. Also, guys who aren’t healthy shouldn’t take it, as well as those who take nitrates for chest pain (the combination may lead to low blood pressure, loss of consciousness, heart attack and stroke).

We offer 16 different ED Pump models to choose from, starting at 89.99! a Penis pumps are one of the least invasive treatments for the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Penis pumps are preferable to medications for many patients.

Erectile Dysfunction Pumps and Medicare

Erectile Dysfunction issues are becoming quite common as the baby boomer generation heads towards retirement; however, it is not normal to have erectile dysfunction or impotence symptoms at any age!

Should you be suffering from Erectile Dysfunction issues, meet with your Physician and discuss what other medical problems could be affecting your performance. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by many things including: stress, depression, diabetes, prostate issues, high blood pressure, heart problems, lack of exercise, alcohol, obesity are just a few.  Discuss with your Physician what medical conditions you have that could contribute to erectile dysfunction. Many options are out there to improve and deal with Erectile Dysfunction from pills all the way to erection pumps.

For those unable or unwilling to take an expensive drug regiment, an ED Pump or Vacuum Therapy pump, as it is refer to, is a great alternative. Most private insurance companies, as well as Medicare, Have ended Coverage for ED Pump effective 1/1/16

The requirements vary from insurance company to insurance company, however most follow Medicare guideline (Medicare ended coverage 1/16/16). However  a  ED pump costs as little as 99.99 and big savings over prescription cost as most Insurance company’s, do not cover ED medicines.

FDA approved ED pumps like the Encore OTC to be readily available without a prescription starting in the 100.00 range.
