The Benefits of a Portable Oxygen Concentrator

Oxygen therapy provides many benefits, and now with portable oxygen concentrators, you can get the oxygen you need and breathe easier while maintaining your freedom and independence.

Improves Exercise Tolerance

Studies show that using supplemental oxygen during exercise allows you to exercise longer, at a higher intensity, which means you’ll reap greater rewards for all your efforts

Increases Survival

Supplemental oxygen, worn at least 15 hours a day, increases survival in some patients. Today’s portable oxygen technology allows you to utilize portable oxygen therapy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anytime, anywhere.

Improves Mental Alertness

Are you in a mental fog? When you’re not getting enough oxygen, every organ of your body is affected, including your brain. Confusion is the first sign that people with lung disease may not be getting enough oxygen. Using supplemental oxygen keeps your brain, and all your other vital organs, healthy.

A Better Night's Sleep

Oxygen saturation levels tend to drop during sleep, even in people with healthy lungs. When you have COPD or another chronic lung disease, transient nocturnal desaturation may interfere with a restful night’s sleep and lead to some pretty significant health problems.  If your sleep patterns are frequently disrupted, talk to your doctor about having an overnight oximetry test. You may benefit from supplemental oxygen during sleep, which will help you get the rest you need.
