Treating COVID-19 Symptoms
Offering Treatment at Home for COVID-19
One of the three major symptoms of the Coronavirus is shortness or breath. Low Flow Oxygen Therapy (LFOT) has long been a major therapy in the recovery from temporary respiratory deficiencies that cause shortness of breath. Oxygen is a standard feature in the recovery from pneumonia because it compensates for the associated temporary reduction in lung capacity.
If shortness of breath (SOB) is causing you to have low energy and is limiting your necessary daily self-care activities even small amounts of oxygen can make your recovery easier. Oxygen Support Systems offers delivery, set-up, training and follow-up services for all oxygen customers. The Respiratory Therapists at Oxygen Support Systems work with our patients, the patient’s family and caregivers to provide the best and most comprehensive services to the patients in their homes or temporary residence. The delivery professionals at Oxygen Support Systems bring the supplies right to the home and offer on-site set-up and training. Our motto is: “We Treat You Right at Home.”
Oxygen Therapy for Shortness of Breath
Shortness of breath is common to everyone during physical exertion or any upper respiratory illness. It is also the most common symptom of severe or chronic pulmonary disease. Reduced lung capacity due to a pulmonary disease, however, results in a shortness of breath which is not resolved by rest or by decongestants. Hypoxemia, the medical term for shortness of breath, is defined as insufficient oxygenation of the blood. It's damage is often rapid, irreversible and, especially among critically ill patients, fatal. When the amount of healthy interior lung surface is diminished by illness such as pneumonia hypoxemia (SOB) results. By replacing oxygenation to the human blood stream oxygen provides immediate relief from discomfort and anxiety. Oxygen Support Systems offers oxygen systems to suit the duration and severity of any home recovery or treatment.
