Warmer weather is swiftly approaching, which means you can enjoy getting your physical activity outdoors without dealing with the chill of winter. If you have COPD or another condition that requires you to use oxygen therapy, your lungs are probably sensitive to the extremely cold temperatures that some areas see in the winter, as well as the extreme heat that some areas have in the summer. For many people, spring is a time for getting outside and taking advantage of the mild weather.
Whether you need continuous oxygen, or you only need it at certain times of the day, you shouldn't be intimidated by some outdoor fun. If you need continuous oxygen, you can bring a portable oxygen concentrator with you. If you only use it for segments of the day, you can still get out and get the fresh air and sunshine. Just be sure to talk to your doctor before you make plans to start an exercise routine.
