What is Oxygen Therapy?
Normally, our lungs adsorb oxygen from the air that we breathe and transfers it to our tissues through our bloodstream. For some of us, that absorbed oxygen level is too low and oxygen therapy is necessary.
Who Requires Oxygen Therapy?
There are several conditions or diseases that can cause low oxygen levels in our bloodstream. These conditions or diseases can be short term or long term and may include but are not limited to: COPD, Heart Failure, Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma, Severe Pneumonia, and Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis.
What can Oxygen Therapy do for you?
Oxygen therapy may improve energy levels, decrease shortness of breath, improve sleep, increase exercise tolerance, and improve quality of life.
