  • Alternative Ways to Pay for an Oxygen Concentrator

    Paying for oxygen therapy equipment shouldn't be a painful process. Here, we will help walk you through some of the payment methods that we offer at Oxygen Concentrator Store. Oxygen concentrators can be pricey, depending on the type and the model, as well as the features and settings. A stationary oxygen concentrator will cost much less than a portable oxygen concentrator.

    Either way you slice it, you will be saving money in the lung run, because you won't need to order oxygen refills. Oxygen concentrators might be on the costly side because of their technology that filters the oxygen within the machine itself, but you will no longer have to purchase or bother with purchasing the oxygen you need. It's always there in the air around you, available to you through the oxygen concentrator.

  • Protect Yourself This Spring from Allergies and COPD Flareups

    Unfortunately, when the weather starts to warm up, many of us can't celebrate the way others normally do. Those with allergies can feel the onset of spring right in their sinuses, and that can be very bad news for oxygen therapy patients who also suffer from spring allergies. However, there are plenty of ways to protect yourself this spring, so you won't need to suffer or risk your allergies turning into something much worse.

    Allergic rhinitis, or the allergy symptoms effecting the nose, can make a very negative impact on the lungs and the rest of the pulmonary tract. Those with asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) who also have allergies, can attest that whenever their allergies start to rear its ugly head in the spring time, they can also feel their lungs becoming more irritated.

  • Outdoor Exercise this Spring with COPD and Oxygen Therapy

    It's exciting that warmer weather is on its way all around the country. Cabin fever may have set in this winter, but now we can get out and feel more energized and alive in the fresh air and sunshine. Many people enjoy working out and getting physical activity in the outdoors, and can't stand trying to exercise inside on a treadmill or stationary bike. If you have COPD, it really is in your best interest to some exercise either way, and you can start today with your outdoor routine.

    First, you need to check with your doctor before you start doing anything fitness-wise that you haven't done before. He or she will give you the go ahead as long as you can physically handle it, and will most likely give you some advice based on your individual condition and needs. Many patients with COPD are benefited by being outside as long as there isn't a lot of pollution, and if you can get some light exercise.

    It's amazing how quickly your body starts to bounce back after you've quit smoking. You will notice that your senses of smell and taste will become much stronger. The cough you may have, in the mornings especially, will start to decrease as your airways finish clearing out the tar that you've been breathing in.

  • National Mentoring Month – Being an Oxygen Therapy Mentor

    If you've been using oxygen therapy for a while, you've most likely gotten used to it and know the basic ins and outs of it. While it's not complicated and there isn't much you really have to know, using your new oxygen concentrator and needing to use oxygen therapy in general can take some getting used to. When you first started using oxygen therapy, you may have felt strange and maybe a little upset with the fact that you now are relying on a machine to do something for you that your lungs can no longer do sufficiently. This can be the hardest thing to get used to.

    Having someone to talk to in the beginning, beside a doctor who likely only covers the medical aspect of your diagnosis and prescription, can help you feel more comfortable with your new routine. Being able to relate to someone who also uses oxygen therapy can be nice, as well as having someone to answer general questions. Keep in mind that you should always double check medical things with your doctor before taking any major actions. Your oxygen therapy mentor is only there to relate to and to give moral support.
