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.

Top facts on PF:

  1. Occurs mostly in the 50 to 70 age group
  2. Could be caused by environmental e.g pollution, viral infections or chemotherapy, or radiation plus if it is in your family history.

The science of cluster headaches and how oxygen helps…


A rare type of headache that affects about 1 to 2 people in every 1,000

Migraine Trust
cluster headaches
  • Cluster headache is the only indication for oxygen therapy in the absence of hypoxia
  • During attacks patients are often restless, agitated, or both
  • Attacks typically last for 15 to 180 minutes untreated and have a frequency of 1 every other day for up to 8 attacks a day
  • Using inhaled high-flow oxygen is more likely to result in being pain-free after 15 minutes
  • Oxygen therapy can be administered at different flow rates
  • High flow oxygen is very effective in some patients in relieving symptoms of an acute cluster headache quickly and safely
  • Cluster headache bouts alternate with remission periods, when patients are pain free
  • In the majority of these patients, the headaches occur in clusters (bouts) with daily attacks for several weeks
  • Oxygen is one of the safest ways to treat cluster headache
