Oxygen Therapy – Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC)

What is Oxygen Therapy? How to look for a Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC) that can benefits you? And lets you keep up with your active lifestyles?

Oxygen, a gas that your body needs to work well. Your lungs absorb oxygen from the air.

However, certain acute (short-term) and chronic (ongoing) diseases and conditions can prevent you from getting enough oxygen. Your doctor will decide whether you need oxygen therapy based on tests results, such as an arterial blood gas test and a pulse oximetry test. These tests measure how much oxygen is in your blood. A low oxygen level is a sign that you need oxygen therapy. Oxygen is considered a medicine, so your doctor must prescribe it.

Oxygen therapy helps many people function better and be more active. It also may help:

  • Decrease shortness of breath and fatigue (tiredness)
  • Improve sleep in some people who have sleep-related breathing disorders
  • Increase the lifespan of some people who have COPD

Although you may need oxygen therapy long term, it doesn’t have to limit your daily routine. Portable oxygen units can make it easier for you to move around and do many daily activities. Talk with your doctor if you have questions about whether certain activities are safe for you.

If you need oxygen while traveling, plan in advance. Contact your transportation carrier to find out their specific rules.
