American Lung Association - How Can Oxygen Therapy Help Me?


According to the American Lung Association, supplmental oxygen does not cure lung disease but is is an important therapy that improves symptoms and organ function. 

Be Less Short of Breath

Oxygen therapy can help you by decreasing your shortness of breath or breathlessness. It won’t completely take away your shortness of breath, but it can help many lung disease patients feel less breathless during everyday activities. Not everyone who has shortness of breath is a candidate for oxygen, so be sure to talk to your doctor about whether it is right for you. 

Feel Less Fatigued

When you are not getting enough oxygen, it can make you feel very fatigued. Simple tasks, such as doing household chores, can be a struggle. Oxygen therapy can help circulate more oxygen into your bloodstream which can improve your energy levels. 

Be More Active

Oxygen therapy may help you become more active and get you back to doing the activities you enjoy. Many people with lung disease use oxygen during exercise, to run errands, to do chores, and even when flying.There are ways to do just about everything you love while using oxygen. When your body has enough oxygen, you will have more energy to be more active. 

Sleep Better

People with lung disease often have a hard time sleeping or don’t get very restful sleep.There are many reasons for this, but one is that people with lung disease lose oxygen in their blood overnight, especially during REM sleep. Using oxygen therapy at night allows your body to get more oxygen into the bloodstream so that you may get a better night’s sleep.Your doctor may recommend you do a sleep study to determine whether supplemental oxygen at night is right for you.

"...Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening disease.The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established. The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce."
