Supplemental Oxygen Can Provide Respiratory Support During Poor Air Quality

Millions of Americans on the West Coast are experiencing an immediate emergency as their neighborhoods and communities are being destroyed or threatened by wildfires. All of which is also happening during a pandemic. These wildfires have also led to poor air quality issues and major health concerns.

Poor Air Quality


Up and down the West Coast, many people have had their lives upended as fires have engulfed homes and destroyed entire communities. Each day we all see images of despair and desperation as these fires continue to spread.

At the same time, those same people are also experiencing breathing issues from the wildfires. Cities and towns are being covered in a thick haze of smoke that is causing headaches, dizziness, nausea and respiratory health issues. Poor air quality can mean less Oxygen in the air. The air we normally breathe contains only 21% Oxygen - the majority is 78% Nitrogen. For people with pre-existing breathing problems, the situation can be extremely dangerous and sometimes life-threatening. Millions are being forced to stay indoors to avoid the horrible air quality.

The situation hit close to home for Boost Oxygen this week as one of our employees and his family are now in the danger zone.
