General description and characteristic of Philips 9W/01/2P bulb. More than 400 independent clinical studies have proven that the UVB Narrowband treatment is safer and more effective than any other treatment in its class. Lamps installed in such phototherapy treatment systems emit only a very narrow waveband from the B bandwidth of the UV spectrum (290 to 315). Philips offers lamps with narrow waveband of between 305 and 315 nm which peaks at 311 nm. This makes these lamps very suitable for UV-B Narrowband phototherapy systems which treat skin diseases such as psoriasis and vitiligo. Cap-base: G23 (2 pins). Useful life: 2000 hours. Present in natural sunlight, ultraviolet B (UVB) is an effective treatment for psoriasis, vitiligo and other skin diseases. UVB penetrates the skin and slows the growth of affected skin cells. Treatment involves exposing the skin to an artificial UVB light source for a set length of time on a regular schedule. This treatment is administered in a medical setting or at home. Treating psoriasis with a UVB light unit at home is an economical and convenient choice for many people. Like phototherapy in a clinic, it requires a consistent treatment schedule. Individuals are treated initially at a medical facility and then begin using a light unit at home. The greatest advantage of home phototherapy is the tremendous time savings it allows while still providing totally effective phototherapeutic relief. For those that have been going to a phototherapy clinic, the convenience of home treatment eliminates scheduling problems, missed visits, and traveling costs. Also, when treatments are in the privacy of your own home, you can go directly from a shower or bath to the lights while you are still naked. For those living too far from a phototherapy clinic, a home UVB unit may be the only reasonable option, and it might prevent you from being put on risky systemic drugs such as biologics. UVB exposure is significantly safer than UVA. Therefore, it can be successfully used by pregnant women, children or people with serious liver disease or cataracts. The treatment is generally well tolerated and safe for patients. 85% of patients with psoriasis respond to UVB, and they constitute the largest group subjected to phototherapy. UVB therapy should be consulted with a dermatologist. UVB LIGHT FOR PSORIASIS TREATMENT. According to current studies, more than 8 million Americans have psoriasis. 125 million people worldwide – 2 to 3 percent of the total population – have psoriasis, according to the World Psoriasis Day consortium. Studies show that between 10 and 30 percent of people with psoriasis also develop psoriatic arthritis. Psoriasis is not a cosmetic problem. Nearly 60 percent of people with psoriasis reported their disease to be a large problem in their everyday life. Nearly 40 percent with psoriatic arthritis reported their disease to be a large problem in everyday life. Patients with moderate to severe psoriasis experienced a greater negative impact on their quality of life. Psoriasis has a greater impact on quality of life in women and younger patients. The National Psoriasis Foundation defines mild psoriasis as affecting less than 3 percent of the body; 3 percent to 10 percent is considered moderate; more than 10 percent is considered severe. For most individuals, your hand is about the same as 1 percent of the skin surface. However, the severity of psoriasis is also measured by how psoriasis affects a person’s quality of life. Nearly one-quarter of people with psoriasis have cases that are considered moderate to severe. In the United States, the economic burden of psoriasis is substantial because this disease results in considerable negative physical, psychiatric, and social consequences. About one out of three people with psoriasis report having a relative with psoriasis. If one parent has psoriasis, a child has about a 10 percent chance of having psoriasis. If both parents have psoriasis, a child has approximately a 50 percent chance of developing the disease. Ultraviolet B light (UVB), one of the components of sunlight, is especially effective for treating psoriasis. During the treatment patients are exposed to the light for just a few seconds at first, and the exposure time is gradually increased to several minutes per treatment. UVB treatment is sometimes administered with topical treatments such as coal tar, anthralin, or just mineral oil. A form of UVB light known as narrow-band (NB-UVB) has been shown to be even more effective than UVB or UVA, and is increasingly being used by dermatologists. It has been clinically proved that the UVB Narrowband light is the most effective and safest way to treat psoriasis and many other skin diseases. UVB light is widely used in the hospitals and dermatologic clinics. RECOMMENDED USAGE OF THE LAMP. We recommend to start irradiation from 20-25 seconds. Distance from lamp to skin should be approximately 4-6 cm. If the skin becomes accustomed to UVB light, you can extend irradiation time up to 2-4 seconds by every session. It is the best to consult your doctor to determine the most suitable irradiation time and treatment plan for you. Wear UV-block goggles when the lamp is on. UVB LIGHT FOR VITAMIN D PRODUCTION. Philips UVB 311nm bulbs are ideal for vitamin D production. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Traditionally, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn’t properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities. But increasingly, research is revealing the importance of vitamin D in protecting against a host of health problems. Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness can mean you have a vitamin D deficiency. However, for many people, the symptoms are subtle. Yet, even without symptoms, too little vitamin D can pose health risks. Low blood levels of the vitamin have been associated with the following. Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease. Cognitive impairment in older adults. Severe asthma in children. All our packages are insured from damages.
