  • What is Oxygen Purity?

    The purity level of your oxygen delivery is extremely important to your therapy and overall health. An oxygen concentrator is used to maintain a certain level of purity at each individual setting. But what exactly is oxygen purity and what does it mean?

    Oxygen is a colorless, tasteless, and odorless gas that makes up approximately 20% of the air we breathe. If you suffer from COPD or other lung/respiratory diseases you probably require supplemental oxygen. Perhaps you’ve heard your doctor mention oxygen purity when talking about your ideal settings and levels. The word “purity” refers to how pure of a percentage of concentrated oxygen is available to the patient. Medical grade oxygen for an oxygen concentrator should be no less than 90.0% and no more than 96.0%. It’s also important to consider your altitude level when looking at ideal oxygen saturation levels. For example, an ideal saturation level at or near sea level will fluctuate slightly from cities at a higher altitude such as Denver, Colorado. If you’re unsure or confused about your required oxygen levels, consult your doctor.

  • What is a Pulse Oximeter?

    A pulse oximeter is a small and lightweight device that attaches to a fingertip to painlessly measure the level of oxygen in your body. The oximeter can measure two things: your pulse rate and the level of oxygen in your blood. Both of these numbers are necessary to asses your current levels and health.

    It’s important to note that the information a pulse oximeter can provide is limited. As we mentioned above an oximeter only measures your pulse and blood-oxygen levels. An oximeter will not measure the CO2, or carbon dioxide, levels in your bloodstream. A pulse oximeter is not a replacement for more extensive and involved tests to be completed by your doctor. If you are ever in a situation where you are concerned about your oxygen levels, we suggest consulting your doctor immediately.

    Pulse oximeters are discreet, small, and easily transportable! Typically, oximeters weigh just a few ounces and are thinner than most wallets! Read on to learn more!

    The third leading cause of death, and consequently, the one that is also the easiest to prevent, is COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
