If you’ve been having difficulty breathing, catching yourself gulping air unexpectedly; if you’ve been coughing for a while, the cough accompanied by phlegm – these might be indicating the development of COPD – Chronic Obtrusive Pulmonary Disease – which is a good reason to consider consulting your doctor. The symptoms above might suggest there has been a degradation to lung function, which leads to a low oxygen levels in one’s blood.
The issue mentioned may affect one’s life quality and influence directly concentration levels, movability and productivity. If one notices these symptoms, a visit to the doctor might be in order, so a few test could be run.
In order to verify an Oxygen Concentrator is required, three tests may be run by your doctor:
- ABG – Arterial Blood Gas test – tests the gas balance in one’s blood. If there is an improper balance between the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, it is bad.
- Spirometry test – to test the lung function; one would be asked to blow into a mouthpiece as strong as they can, to see how much force can be produced.
- A physical test, such as the x-ray or the CT scan – these to provide with a visual of the lungs, so the doctor can get a better idea as to what is going on.
There are multiple products around the market, which makes this a complicated decision. It is highly suggested that these decisions are taken with one’s doctor, so the product eventually chosen complies with one’s specific needs – each person’s needs are different, and the dose provided by the Oxygen Concentrator should be tailored to those needs.
Now, after covering what should be known on the Why, here are a few examples you can consider as a solution for your needs:
