Lack of Oxygen is a direct cause of Hypoxia

High country clear air is so fresh to breath but lacks the critical life-supporting O2 oxygen that we need to survive.

Denver is 5,280 ft altitude.
Oxygen is 20% larger and less abundant in Denver compared to Sea Level.
In Colorado, as well as many other places, the first check on a medical clinic is blood Oxygen saturation Level.
 




Symptoms of Hypoxia

Oxygen plays an important part in your body’s cells and tissues. The only way for your body to get oxygen is through your lungs.

Symptoms of hypoxia often include:

  • shortness of breath while resting
  • decreased tolerance to physical activity
  • waking up out of breath
  • severe shortness of breath after physical activity
  • feelings of choking
  • wheezing
  • frequent cough
  • bluish discoloration of the skin

 

This pocket finger-tip tool is perfect to store with the pocket size air supply.

Oxygen - This is the pocket size Pulse Oximeter - a great tool to use with any oxygen canister. 

The Oximeter is a reliable way to spot-check blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate (BPM). This lightweight and portable device takes fast, noninvasive measurements at the fingertip.

Track and view your SpO2 and BPM readings directly on the device's display and in the iHealth SpO2 app during sports training or other recreational activities.

 

For the record, the newest FITBIT is supposed to carry the feature and people have been disappointed because it still is not yet working...see here

Hypoxia- further defined

                                         

 

According to WebMD, this can lead to what’s known as hypoxia, “when your blood doesn’t carry enough oxygen to your tissues to meet your body’s needs,” although hypoxia is often used to describe both conditions.

In Colorado people experience the symptoms of this rather non-descript condition because of the 5280 ft of Altitude.🤒

You easily amplify these symptoms by elevating yourself to the mountains for skiing or other activities.

This can occur suddenly as a result of taking certain medications or having an asthma attack, or develop over time due to heart problems or lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and emphysema.



Although symptoms of hypoxia often vary from person to person, the following are the five most common ones to be aware of.

1. Skin Color Changes
As red blood cells are what carry oxygen to the body’s tissues, an insufficient amount of them can cause the skin to change color. Known as cyanosis, the skin will typically appear a dark bluish-red, and is most noticeable if oxygen levels drops dramatically.

For those with darker skin colors, MedlinePlus says cyanosis “may be easier to see in the mucous membranes (lips, gums, around the eyes) and nails.”


 2. Confusion

The NHS defines a state of confusion as “not being able to think clearly or quickly, feeling disorientated, and struggling to pay attention, make decisions, or remember things.”

If you notice yourself or someone else suddenly exhibiting any of these symptoms, it may be an indication of hypoxia. Sudden hypoxia could be caused by a variety of reasons, from a severe asthma attack to a problem with the heart or lungs.


 3. Coughing

One of the most common causes of hypoxia is a severe asthma attack, during which it can be hard to get sufficient air into the lungs as the airways have narrowed. In an attempt to clear the lungs, a person may cough frequently.

While this is a natural reaction, it can prove dangerous as WebMD says “coughing to clear your lungs uses even more oxygen and can make symptoms worse.”


 4. Rapid Heart Rate and Breathing 

An increased heart rate most often occurs when engaging in physical activity, so if it happens while at rest it may be an indication of hypoxia. When the body isn’t receiving sufficient oxygen, Livestrong.com says that the heart begins pumping faster in order to “help circulate oxygen-containing blood throughout the body in an attempt to meet the cells’ needs.”

Breathing also becomes more rapid when the body’s oxygen needs aren’t being met, in an effort to increase intake. While people normally breathe at a rate of 12 to 16 times per minute, in these situations rates may increase to 24 breaths or higher.


5. Shortness of Breath
Shortness of breath is considered one of the most obvious symptoms of hypoxia, and often occurs as a result of the increased heart rate and breathing mentioned previously. It often occurs while at rest, and can become so severe that it feels as though you’re choking.

Shortness of breath will be especially pronounced when engaging in physical activities, and may decrease one’s tolerance for them. It may also happen during sleep, causing you to wake up out of breath. In some cases, shortness of breath may also be accompanied by wheezing, a high-pitched whistling sound that occurs when breathing, particularly exhaling.

Today! Oxygen in the pocket is really the cool thing!

Pure oxygen is quickly becoming a top choice for naturally restoring and refreshing the mind and body.

In medical and non-medical scenarios, oxygen is used to help everything from sleeping disorders to asthma, fatigue, athletic performance and more. Now available in a portable, recreational application by the pioneers of pure recreational oxygen, Oxygen Plus (O+), allows people with healthy, active lifestyles to go even further without a hitch. Is it really too good to be true?

Are you wondering if there’s a catch? There really isn’t one.

 

Oxygen's refined and expansive collection of Oxygen canned oxygen products offer healthy, wellness-minded individuals the highest quality oxygen at a great value. The company is fueled by their founding belief that everyone deserves access to pure oxygen. When used as directed, oxygen for recreational use, has no side effects, zero calories, zero carbs and zero caffeine – which means zero potential for the jitters or a crash.

Oxygen Plus is an all-natural product: Conveniently portable and there for you…any time you need a lift.

Zero side effects for using canned oxygen as an energy supplement

Energy supplement products are everywhere. They line the shelves at your local grocery store, sit in piles on the counter as you pay for gas, and they’re seen throughout the workplace as a quick fix for a boost of energy.

Unfortunately, these types of energy boosts come with extra carbs and sugar and/or a post-surge crash.

In order to avoid the crash, you have to suffer through it or take more to curtail the side effects. Studies have found that energy shots have calories, carbs and caffeine that can be harmful to your health (Medical News Today: Whiteman).

Moreover, energy drinks and shots are not likely addressing the real energy crisis you’re experiencing at work or school: depleted oxygen levels that can affect your cognition, focus and mental clarity.

Canned oxygen,  has none of these negative side effects. Oxygen is safe for healthy people using the product as directed, and there are no side effects nor is there a potential to become addicted or overdose. 

In their article, The Need for Supplemental Oxygen, the University of California San Francisco wrote, “There is no such thing as becoming "dependent on" or "addicted to" supplemental oxygen — everybody needs a constant supply of oxygen to live” (University of California San Francisco).

The effect of breathing Oxygen is smoother, and the energy is less like a jolt or caffeine rush. It is more restorative, relaxing and invigorating than unhealthier energy alternatives. When people breath  oxygen, they report feeling more alert, focused, and ready to take on the day.

Zero side effects when using canned oxygen to clear morning fog after a late night out
In addition to energy shots lining the shelves of your local stores, there is a growing line-up of supplements touting to help you get over your hangover. Desperate to survive the day, you might be tempted to put these supplements on the checkout counter as you pay for your groceries or gas.
Some supplements may help you feel better for a little while, however in a couple of hours you may wish you opted for a healthier, more effective option. Consuming alcohol depletes the oxygen content in your bloodstream. 

The use of supplemental oxygen increases the amount of oxygen to the body's cells, serving as an aid to help lessen, and recover from, the negative effects of hangovers. On a cellular level, breathing canned oxygen helps break down and disperse the harmful chemicals and substances that may be stuck in your body. 

People who occasionally overindulge have found that extra oxygen intake helps them recover more quickly – without any of the side effects of those alternative options. So next time you’re out on the town drinking responsibly, you might dare stay out and breathe your Oxygen the next morning to help take the edge off.
Zero side effects for using portable oxygen to revitalize your mind

When you reach for a cup of Joe, you can feel the java rush through your body as if it’s lighting your brain on fire – in a good way.

But did you know that caffeine actually takes 15 to 20 minutes to take its chemical effect in your body (Medical News Today: Whiteman)?

That means your first sips of coffee are more like a mental placebo. Regardless, when the caffeine fix sets in, you feel alert and awake…until the effects of caffeine subside and you’re left with the jitters and the struggle to keep your eyes open and your mind on task.

 

Unlike caffeine, Oxygen’s side effect-free oxygen in a can is an excellent alternative for revitalizing your mind and getting over that midday lull.

Oxygen helps sharpen your mental focus, and enhance your productivity without the risk of crashing down the 2 to 3 P.M. tunnel of darkness after the effects wear off.

Zero side effects for using oxygen in a can to enhance athletic performance

After a long day at work, finding the energy to workout can be a challenge in and of itself. You’re tired and have little energy left over.

So, maybe you mix up or grab an on-the-go energy supplement. It may get you to the gym, however some energy supplements are loaded with carbs, caffeine, calories or other ingredients an elite athlete may not want.

Oxygen products may offer wellness-minded athletes the healthier energy alternative they’ve been looking for.

Canned oxygen is quickly becoming a top choice for naturally restoring and refreshing the mind and body.
