Living with COPD
It is very important to establish healthy lifestyle habits:
Maintain a balanced diet
Home Oxygen Therapy
If your blood oxygen levels are low, your Doctor may prescribe oxygen from an external source.
There are different alternatives that will allow you to continue to maintain an active life:
- Fixed oxygen concentrator
- Portable oxygen concentrator
- Transportable Oxygen Concentrators
- Oxygen Cylinders
Your doctor may prescribe the most suitable option for your needs including required hours of use.
Afterwards, a specialised company like Air Liquide Healthcare Ireland will install it in your home, explaining how it works and providing support and attention throughout the process.
Normalising Oxygen use in COPD
You need to live!
