How to plan your holiday with oxygen

How can I make travelling easier?

  • Make all travel plans in advance
  • Prepare for typical problems
  • Plan rest stops, snack breaks, stretches and short walks
  • Plan to travel at cooler times of the day or year, so less air conditioning is needed
  • Follow your home routine as much as possible
  • When making travel reservations (e.g. bus, airline, tours), be sure to notify the staff of your oxygen use, so they can accommodate your needs
  • Also make sure you look up any additional requirements for where you are travelling such as covid measures, paperwork or passenger forms in advance to save you trouble on route

5 things to know if its safe to travel to right now

travel safely

Travel has certainly been up and down the last couple of years. Since COVID restrictions started to ease and travel became easier the industry has seen a high demand for those wanting and needing to travel. Everyone wants to explore new destinations and also see family again. Now with the Ukraine and Russia invasion travellers may be left confused, worried or unsure if travel can still go ahead – especially is in European countries.

What travellers need to know is:

  1. You are still safe to travel to other European countries at the moment
  2. Please still do update yourself with current coronavirus rules for the country you are travelling to
  3. For neighbouring countries to Ukraine please be aware that many of these places have had an influx of refugees and emergency support set up to help
  4. Keep up to date with the news just in case of any air space changes
  5. Don’t cancel your travel plans just yet; especially as air lines may see an increase in fuel prices which will in turn be passed onto the customer

Staying warm and well this winter

winter

Winter is here. For many its a time to get excited for all the festivities as we warm up for spending time with loved ones, take a break or have some time out to see out the end of another (tough) year. But for many it can anticipate worry, anxiety and even cause for concern if you have a respiratory disease such as asthma, COPD or bronchitis. Many will be short of breath, coughing more or even not wanting to leave the house to avoid worsening conditions especially in times where coughing and having a cold makes many even more wary with Covid-19.

The best advice is to Keep Warm and to Keep Active. These two elements will help you be less severe and stay away from worsening your conditions. And the most important piece of advice is if you are unwell please do speak with you GP or doctor for further advice. Leaving the house may give many anxiety but a short walk in your local area and getting fresh air is so important for your physical and mental health.

Staying warm is important to keep your body temperature up. Carefully plan your ability to keep you house warm, wear extra layers of clothing and even thick socks and long-sleeved tops. Moving about will help to keep your temperature warm and strengthen those lungs which is very important at this time of year.
You may be travelling this winter to visit or be with your family so please do speak with our team for advice and arrangements to allow you one less thing to worry about when arranging medical oxygen on holiday.

Making memories this Christmas

family christmas

This festive season many of us will be making up for lost time and making new memories with our loved ones. The last Christmas saw many separated, divided, lonely and not able to experience the warm, family-filled Christmas-time we all were hoping for.

Coronavirus although still very much a part of life has meant many will want to enjoy Christmas even more. Many will make travel to see loved ones, experience festive fun travels, all come together for food, fun and make up for lost time.

Whether you are hosting a special celebration, going to spend Christmas back home or jetting off for travels – make it special!

Let’s all get festive

This year talking about Christmas doesn’t feel too early does it?! We all missed loved ones, travel, Christmas markets and all the work and friend socialising so this year we all cannot wait!

We have previously written a blog for this but feel that this year we all cannot wait and winter travel may be on the plans even more so. With the UK relaxing travel rules by November even further – catching some winter sun, taking a short break or flying to spend times with those we have all missed will be more popular this Christmas time.


Here are 5 top tips when travelling with oxygen over the festive period:


1) Make sure you have notified everyone on your expected times of arrival and where you are staying to ensure that your supply arrives at the correct location / date / time

2) Ensure you pack everything you will need for the destination you are visiting. Especially over the winter months take extra care in packing the right clothes for the temperature. Many countries over winter months drop and you will need to keep warm

3) Always take more than enough supply of medication with you – transportation car / train / boar or plane especially in colder climates could be delayed or cancelled and pro-long your trip

4) If you are staying with friends and family make sure they have OWW contact details as we are available for help 24/7 and can help if something goes wrong with your oxygen supply during your trip

5) Most of all enjoy Christmas and unwind. Relaxing is the best medicine as well as laughter and joy. Make memories during your trip that will last a lifetime.

Medical oxygen saves lives

Oxygen therapy has always been a vital need for many but the recent global pandemic has highlighted its use and heightened demands for its supply over the last year. Many countries have faced huge pressures to with low or limited supplies especially in less developed areas of the world.

Medical oxygen

Many COVID-19 patients in India have sadly died due to the shortage of medical oxygen, bringing this critical medical need into the spotlight. As the world tries to help one another get to grips on lowering the need for medical oxygen we will now have more demand as part of the after effects of patients needing oxygen long-term. Please do read more of our articles to understand how you can cope and still remain active especially travelling.
