Here are five safety tips to help you live a full and active life while using medical oxygen.

1. Be safe:

Whether you’re at home or on the go, safety should always be your top priority. Ensure your oxygen equipment is well-maintained and in good working condition. Regularly inspect your oxygen tubing and cannulas for any signs of wear or damage, and replace them as needed. Store your oxygen cylinders or portable concentrators securely to prevent accidents.

2. Plan in advance:

Travelling with medical oxygen requires some extra planning, but it’s entirely manageable. Check with your airline for their specific requirements and guidelines for travelling with oxygen.

3. Speak to OxygenWorldwide:

The team can help organise your portable oxygen allowing you to explore new places with ease. Discuss your needs with us here to determine the most suitable equipment for your situation.

4. Track Your Oxygen Levels:

During physical activities carry a pulse oximeter with you to measure your oxygen levels on the go. This will help you gauge when you need to adjust your oxygen flow rate or take a break to avoid overexertion.

5. Stay Hydrated:

Proper hydration is crucial when using medical oxygen. Oxygen can be drying to the respiratory passages, so drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
