Supplemental Oxygen can help during the Winter

Every year starting in October in the United States, influenza activity begins to increase. While influenza viruses circulate year-round, most activity peaks between December and February, but activity can last as late as May. It’s important to drink fluids and get rest if you feel sick or run down, but did you also know that many people use supplemental oxygen to help during cold Winter months?

WINTER AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY

In addition to viruses, several other respiratory viruses also circulate during the winter season and can cause symptoms and illness. These respiratory viruses include rhinovirus (one cause of the “common cold”) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), which is the most common cause of severe respiratory illness in young children as well as a leading cause of death from respiratory illness in those aged 65 years and older. Did you know that indoor air quality can be much worse than outdoor air due to poor ventilation and airborne contaminants, especially in older buildings?

HOW SUPPLEMENTAL OXYGEN CAN HELP DURING WINTER MONTHS

In addition to proper diet and nutrition to strengthen your immune system during the winter, you should also consider supplemental oxygen. Your body can become poorly oxygenated as it fights off a sickness. Your body needs oxygen so it can provide oxygen-rich blood cells to keep your tissues and organs healthy. Without proper oxygen, you can feel tired and your immune system weakens. Plus, the air we normally breathe contains only 21% oxygen – the majority is  78% nitrogen.
