  • Flu Season - Time to Get Vaccinated

    Flu season generally runs from October and even as late as May, with a peak in January and February. The flu can be more dangerous for certain groups of people, including the very young, the elderly, and those with chronic lung diseases like asthma and COPD. Since we are already a month into flu season, hopefully you will get yours soon if you haven't already!

    The flu shot takes around 2 weeks to go into effect, to protect you from the common strains that will be most likely to go around this season. It doesn't protect against every strain, because that would be virtually impossible. There are many strains that will be less common that the flu shot for a given year will not guard against. However, once you've gone 2 weeks after your flu shot, you will be vaccinated against the most common strains for that flu season, and it's recommended by health professionals that you get one.

  • 2014 American Lung Association's Run the Rocks 5K

    “Run the Rocks” is a 5K put on by the American Lung Association, to help raise research money and awareness for a variety of lung related diseases and important issues. The 8th annual 5K run/walk will be taking place on October 12th 2014 in Red Rocks Park in Morrison, Colorado. This run sounds like a lot of fun, as the runs and onlookers will be treated to live music throughout, as well as the beautiful scenery of the park. The end of the 5K run/walk is at the top of the historic amphitheater, but you'll have to climb the steps to get there.

    Even if you can't participate as a runner or walker, you can help raise money for the cause by pledging to a participant. You can do this, and find other important information about the event by visiting RunTheRocks.org. You'll be able to search for a particular team or individual participant by entering their name if you know someone who is participating, or you can just give directly to the cause.

  • The Best Portable Concentrators to Take With You on a Bike Ride

    When you're going for a ride on your bike, you want to be able to travel as light as possible, but you also need to make sure your oxygen needs are being met sufficiently. If you're not sure, or if you haven't gone biking in a while since you've started using oxygen therapy, you should talk to your doctor to see which possible portable oxygen concentrators will cover your oxygen needs while you are exerting yourself.

    Your doctor might have you take a physical test on a stationary bike to get an accurate reading of how much more oxygen you need while you are riding your bike. Everyone needs to take in more oxygen while they are getting exercise or just when they are moving around a lot. If you need to use oxygen therapy, it means your lungs have a hard time bringing in enough oxygen to meet your needs while you are doing every day things, like walking around the house or even while you are sitting still. Some people need to use oxygen therapy only while they are exercising.

  • Portable Oxygen Concentrators As Seen on TV

    Even though you won't see any infomercials selling portable oxygen concentrators, you might see some them advertised on TV. You will always need a prescription before you can buy a portable oxygen concentrator. Oxygen for medical purposes is considered a drug, and it could be dangerous if misused without guidance from a doctor.

    A prescription is always necessary before you can buy a portable oxygen concentrator from American Medical, or from anywhere else that sells them. You should never try to skip a step and buy from a seller that doesn't require a prescription, since these sellers are not legitimate and are probably selling old or unsafe models.

  • HCPCS Code Reference for Oxygen Concentrators

    Every year in health care insurers in the US process more than 5 billion claims to receive payment. Nobody wants to be over-billed, and professionals in the medical field, whether they are doctors, hospitals or oxygen concentrator manufacturers, need to be paid fairly.
