What Are The Benefits Of Oxygen Therapy With The Respironics Evergo?

Numerous studies have shown that COPD patients who use supplemental oxygen live longer and have more active lives than individuals not receiving oxygen. Oxygen therapy is based on the premise that all human cells require sufficient levels of oxygen to function properly. Exercise is often easier for individuals receiving supplemental oxygen because more oxygen is getting to the muscles. Receiving oxygen from machines like the EverGo also helps to reverse the long-term effects of oxygen deficiency on the heart and reduce sleep disruption while also improving concentration and memory levels. Ask your doctor if oxygen therapy and the Respironics EverGo are right for you
