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.
When organising your trip use our FAQ section that will help answers a few of those questions all in one place. Also if you have any queries please do get in touch as our team are on hand to help when travelling with oxygen.
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.

Winter is here and we all notice and feel it from dark evenings even closer to putting on that cosy pair of socks when you get home. Most of us find it eady to stay at home during these months of the year but some may opt to travel to see relatives and friends during the festive season. Whether staying wrapped up indoors or planning a trip make sure you have followed preacaustios to stay safe when you have your oxygen equipment with you.
Keep your medical oxygen unit at least 8-10 feet away from these heat sources to prevent explosions from the highly combustible concentrated oxyge
Chapped lips and dry skin are unfortunate marks of the season. When you’re picking a lotion to replenish parched skin, stay away from petroleum-based ointments. These substances can create violent reactions with medical oxygen, leading to burns around areas of application. Opt for aloe vera, cocoa butter, or water-based products instead, especially for dry nasal passages.
But what about spare tanks? Never store them in cabinets, closets or other unventilated areas, next to heat sources, or under curtains, clothing or fabrics. If a cart to store the oxygen tank upright is not available, store tanks flat on its side and safe from rolling. Store empty tanks separate from full ones.
Your tubing is prone to cracks when transferring from heat to cold quickly, so tuck them carefully inside of your clothing. Additionally, an abrupt drop in temperature creates damaging condensation in your tank, so bundle your device into a blanket or thermal covering before you step out of the house to retain heat.
