Flying on aeroplanes can take away energy cause fatigue, dry out skin and dehydrate you. When traveling remember to not cause yourself too much stress and plan in advance, book taxis or transport to the airport in plenty of time and make sure airlines are aware of any requirements in advance such as dietary conditions or special assistance needs.
Make sure you always carry some water on you to stop dehydration and make sure you move around a bit to keep your circulation moving especially when travelling long haul and to any of these countries that we also deal with regularly when delviering oxygen.
It is highly recommended to carry any important or recent medical records, in case you need to be seen by a different provider while traveling.
And if you aren’t feeling well, it might be worth putting off air travel.

The Healing Power of Breath, doctors Richard P. Brown and Patricia L. Gerbarg write about some techniques and methods that could if used help all of the above:
Pursed-lip breathing method – This is the easiest one to start with. With relaxed shoulders, take a normal breath in for about two counts. Then pucker your lips and exhale for about four counts. Repeat this pattern a few times.
4-7-8 method – In this technique, you exhale through your mouth and then close it and inhale through your nose for four counts. You hold the breath in for seven counts and then release it for eight counts. Repeat at least three times.
Belly-breathing method – Also known as ‘abdominal breathing.’ With your shoulders back, keep one hand on your chest and the other on your belly. As you breathe in deeply for about two seconds, your belly should stick out a bit. Feel the air expanding your stomach and then breathe out slowly through your lips.
All of the above helps to de-stress and breathe better for longer. Especially if you need supplemental oxygen every day and especially when you need to travel. Travel alone causes stress with co-ordinating the organisation and this is why you are not alone. Try some new exercises for your breathing and you may find you are not only heathier but happier too.

So lets go back to what does medical oxygen do? Some of you will already know the exact functions of this very important and vital medical piece of equipment but for those who want to find out more please do read on…
Medical oxygen is used to provide a basis for anaesthetic techniques, restore tissue oxygen tension in a wide range of condtions suc as COPD, asthma, hemorrhage and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Medical oxygen has an expiry of 3 years so this is very important to be kept in line with and liquid oxygen tanks deliver about 6 litres per minute.
Many people use medical oxygen to improve their condition by breathing in air that contains more oxygen from a cylinder. Breathing air with oxygen increases oxygen in your blood. This makes even the most simplest of activities such as walking much easier.
As long as you plan in advance with OxygenWorldwide you can still go on holiday! Oxygen can be delivered to your destination with enough supply to last your holiday duration. Please do find out if our team can help organise your next trip as we deliver to many countries across the world.
On national #FestivalOfSleepDay it is great to show how we can help improve sleep in our daily lives. Sleep is so important to every day function, health and wellbeing. After the craziness of all the recent festivities its time to sit back and make sure we get all the ‘shut eye’ we need.
For those that have medical conditions such as asthma, COPD or parkinson’s night-time problems can be common and affect people at different stages but the main problem is sleep deprivation causing serious consequences on your physical health.
Exposure to high levels of oxygen encourages the brain to remain in deep, restorative sleep, according to a new study by University of Alberta neuroscientists. The research highlights the potential for oxygen therapy for humans in a clinical setting.
“Oxygen therapy could be used to enhance slow-wave states during sleep to ensure that individuals who may have disrupted sleep are getting enough of the restorative, slow-wave sleep,” said Dickson. “Of course, this has to be tested first before it could become a therapeutic reality.”
The study was published in the Journal of Neurophysiology.
#FestivalOfSleepDay helps promote getting that extra bit of sleep you need, make sure you rest and relax and wind down in the evenings after work. If at home make sure you are comfortable, even going to bed earlier helps get some extra snooze. With more sleep we can function much better giving our bodies the rest it needs especially if we have respiratory conditions.

When you are lying in bed or sitting on the sofa at home wishing you weren’t ill. You just want to go to bed and sleep to forget everything for that little moment of time. From time to time we all feel sorry for ourselves, especially with chronic or long-term sickness.
Here are a few ideas on how to cheer up your loved ones and bring a little smile:
Keep Your Distance. Why not send an uplifting bouquet of flowers or leave a care package at her doorstep? Send a quick text message or post on socials. Just remember – while it may feel odd and callous to you not to visit her face-to-face, most likely she would rather stay in bed than try to have a conversation.
Take on the to-do list. Help by offering to take on a task or two – maybe walk the dog, shop for food, or pick up kids from school. Every little task you can take off will be a huge blessing; you can believe it!
Be Warm. Think about your friend and what seems to comfort them in tough situations. Maybe a long soak in a warm tub with a great book? Or a nice cupp a tea? Personalised gifts will not only comfort her aching body, but will also warm her heart.
