Oxygen Therapy and Living With It

For those who need oxygen via a machine living with it sometimes is tough. You need to adapt to a way of life but also not let it hinder your well-being and what you can do.

Oxygen is your life and do not feel you are confined to staying at home as you are connected to a machine. 

Oxygen therapy has come a long way but today the smallest and most versatile portable equipment is available. Medical oxygen allows patients the ability to go on holiday, travel, exercise and be on the move 24/7 as you increase your oxygen blood levels that help stop symptoms, breathing difficulties and prevent heart damage.

Keep cylinders upright at all times whilst at home
