User Perspective: Visiting Las Vegas While on Oxygen

Have you been wanted to go to Las Vegas, but you don't think you can because you need to use oxygen therapy? It's definitely possible, and you shouldn't let that hold you back from going to the places you want to go. Maybe you've heard your friends talking about it and it sounds like a lot of fun. It's not just all about gambling either. There is a big variety of things to do and see for anyone in your family, from the youngest to the oldest.

If you have to go using oxygen therapy and you're not sure what to do or what to expect in Las Vegas, you can take the word on that from oxygen therapy patient and Las Vegas native Jaime Q. She's been using oxygen therapy for going on 4 years, and has a lot to say about her home city. Jaime is one of the best people to talk to about anything having to do with using a portable oxygen concentrator while seeing what there is to see in this city.

I know that the first thing you'll want to see when you get here, besides your hotel room and your bed, is the famous Las Vegas Strip. You'll of course physically see some of it when you get to your hotel, since your hotel is most likely on the strip, but a walk up and down to really experience the place is definitely called for.

This is a busy place, so you might even decide to find a place to stay that is away from the strip. Either way, this is where a lot of the action is. Staying on the strip might be better while bringing along your portable oxygen concentrator, so you won't have to travel as far for most things. But great thing is, it's super easy to get around as long as you have plenty of battery power. Charge up an extra one before you leave your hotel in the morning.

Besides the casinos, you can check out other great things, like the The Aquarium at the Silverton Hotel. I'm sure you'll at least want to try your hand at the slot machines. When you're done with that and you need some peace, quiet and tranquility, the Silverton Hotel Aquarium is great for that. Getting there should be really easy, since it's only 5 miles from the strip.

One amazing thing that I've done myself, is take a helicopter tour that takes you to the Grand Canyon! You can also see the Hoover Dam and get a bird's eye view of Las Vegas. Take a sunset ride and you'll see sights that you will never forget.

Be sure to take lots of pictures for your friends and maybe they will go with you again next year. You can see the Valley of Fire on the Dream Catcher Sunset ride to see the Grand Canyon with some extended time on your flight. Either, riding in a helicopter is a blast.
