  • What is the Normal Oxygen Level? How to Check Your Own Oxygen Level

    If you have COPD any other chronic lung condition, you probably know what it means to have a lower than normal blood oxygen saturation level. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is just one example, but it means that your lungs' ability to bring in enough oxygen is compromised. The tiny air sacks in your lungs have been damaged, so you can't absorb enough oxygen through these sacks into your bloodstream.

    It's important to have a certain level of oxygen, versus a certain level of carbon dioxide in your blood at one time. The carbon dioxide is carried back to your lungs, where it is breathed out when you exhale. The oxygen you breathed in gets delivered to every part of your body, as part of the fuel you need to keep your body working properly.

  • Comparisons of the Home Oxygen Concentrators

    Home oxygen concentrators are for home use because they can only be plugged into an AC outlet. They're also usually larger than portable concentrators, so you wouldn't want to have to transport them around, anyway. Even so, stationary oxygen units are still necessary and make the lives of oxygen therapy users easier.

    If you only need to use oxygen therapy a few hours out of the day, a stationary model might be a better decision, because portable models can be much more pricey. You might only need to use it overnight, and you don't plan on doing a lot of traveling to other places where you would be staying overnight. If you would generally only be using your oxygen therapy while you're at home anyway, a stationary oxygen concentrator is a way to go.
