Breathing at home with Covid-19

breathing better

Coronavirus is becoming less of an ‘unknown’ virus and more of we at least know someone who has it or has recovered from it. If you are able to see loved ones this Christmas and New Year please be careful and if you require medical oxygen for breathing you can still do this in the comfort of your own home.

A huge part of recovery is being surrounded by the things you love, the people you recognise to look after you and just being calm in your familiar surroundings. If you find yourself or someone close to you in need of medical oxygen after covid-19 then our team can help.

OxygenWorldwide has been arranging and delivering medical oxygen for over 20 years around the world. Portable oxygen concentrators can be used safely in and around your home so give you the freedom to move around your home or at least be comfortable.

Whilst at home check in on your well-being

wellbeing

Support is always around you and especially as we continue to shield indoors at home make sure you do the following to maintain your well-being and positive mental state:

– Talk – video call, text message or call your friends and loved ones and keep in regular communication. You will feel in touch with people and what is going on

– Look after yourself – make sure you are getting exercise, go for a walk if you can if not make sure you follow some at home exercises in your living room or from your chair

– Plan your supplies such as shopping and to avoid others right now and if you are high risk order online. If you need help ask a family member to set up your account and order for you each week

Unlock your travel desires this winter

unlock your travel desires

We can truly say that we have all had a very challenging year especially for travel and most have put off or delayed travel plans over the summer.

As we approach winter there is a still a chance to stop dreaming and actually get in a break before Christmas and the new year. A lot of short breaks still give the sense or relaxation and escaping the normal routine of day to day life. Many people are either stuck to their mobile devices, working from home or simply stuck in a routine within the same four walls. For many a break away however long will give a sense of escapism before the year is over plus before more weeks of uncertainty around COVID and a global pandemic.

There are many countries that will be open for travel this winter and also have great safety measures. Many hotels and hospitality premises have very good socially distanced and clean commitments in place to give everyone the confidence when visiting and these can all be researched online prior to booking. When booking your winter break you can also have confidence that many hotel companies are offering very flexible policies so that you do not loose your money if you plans have to change.

Research and plan your travel plans wisely and look forward to travel before another lockdown so you have something to look forward before the year is over.

When travelling with oxygen you can speak to our team and contact us with all your arrangements and be confident that your requirements will be fulfilled and you can sit back and relax awaiting an adventure before the year is over and have something positive to remember.

The 5 European destinations you can travel to now…

Europe

With lock-down easing it is hard to not want to get out and travel. The summer is just beginning and the climates are now warmer. For those looking and thinking about travel outside their country here are the 5 European countries which may be more likely to allow travel from abroad this summer:

  1. Italy – Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced its borders to countries within the European Union from June 3 and will keep a close eye on its rate and if it increases again. 
  2. Greece – This country has had a very low coronavirus rate due to immediate lock-down so international flights will resume from July 1. 
  3. Iceland – From June 15th restrictions will be eased and tests may be required instead of the 14 day quarantine rule.
  4. Portugal – Again another country that wants to let tourists in and the 14 day quaratine restriction will not apply here.
  5. Sweden – This country has not even been in a full lock-down mode compared to other countries and will accept European Union visitors plus UK, Norway and Switzerland

Please do take a look at our Oxygen A-Z Guide here plus all your travel needs if you are planning a trip in Europe with medical oxygen.

Please do check official websites before making travel plans as we know this situation changes daily and therefore governments may bring in different rules as above.

Remember to exercise even if still self-isolating at home

The British Lung Foundation have put together this video to demonstrate exercises that help keep your muscles strong. A lot of us have been at home and sitting down more than we are used to. These exercises remind us that we still need to maintain our strength during this challenging time. If you still cannot go out or only for a short period of time and you are getting short of breathe, here are some exercises that help give breathing techniques and also at different levels.

Watch the video and keep your muscles strong.
