If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please get in touch!

When is oxygen therapy needed?

Supplemental oxygen is required when oxygen saturation falls below 89% or arterial oxygen pressure falls below 60 mmHg, whether at rest, activity, sleep, or altitude.

What are the symptoms of low oxygen?

When you aren’t getting enough oxygen, you’ll experience a host of symptoms, including:

  • rapid breathing
  • shortness of breath
  • fast heart rate
  • coughing or wheezing
  • sweating
  • confusion
  • changes in the colour of your skin
What are the benefits of oxygen therapy?

Oxygen therapy can be incredibly beneficial for anyone who suffers from low oxygen levels on a regular basis, regardless of the cause. Regularly using oxygen treatment, if needed, can help people be more active and mobile by reducing shortness of breath. It can also improve the quality of life and, in certain situations, lengthen life expectancy.

Oxygen therapy can also reduce symptoms such as:

  • headaches
