Being prescribed oxygen therapy can feel overwhelming in the moment, but AeroCare is here to remind you of a few reasons to feel thankful for your oxygen therapy.
You won't lose your Independence
Being on oxygen therapy doesn't mean you can't leave the house. In fact, with portable oxygen tanks and concentrators, you can easily stay independent. AeroCare is here to help you live as independently as possible while on service with us.
Improves Alertness and Cognitive Functions
When your blood oxygen saturation is low, you can feel foggy and fatigued. Once you get started on oxygen therapy you might notice that you'll remember more, feel more alert, and can focus your mind on complex tasks.
Makes Exercise Less Difficult
Supplemental oxygen works as an aid to help you breathe easier when you exercise. When you suffer from a chronic respiratory condition, oxygen therapy can help you get around easier, be more active, and exercise better than you could before.
Reduces Risk of Heart Disease and Other Health Complications
Having long periods of low blood oxygen saturation is dangerous to your health. Leaving this untreated can lead you to other health complications, such as high blood pressure, pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, and heart attacks. Being on oxygen therapy reduces all of these complications significantly.
It's important to note that your doctor will determine when to wear your oxygen and at what level. You should wear your oxygen when and at the rate your doctor prescribes. At AeroCare, we’re here to help when you have questions.
