Each year travelers vacation at high altitude resorts in Colorado or those more adventurous may visit Machu Picchu in Peru.  When traveling to altitudes of 6500 ft and higher, the symptoms of Altitude Sickness may set in beginning with a headache and advancing to vomiting, lack of appetite, fatigue, lightheadedness, insomnia, nosebleeds, drowsiness and general malaise.  At this point a can of Sports Oxygen can reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness and help the individual acclimate to the altitude.

Each can of Sports Oxygen holds about 70 two second breaths and when experiencing the early signs of altitude sickness, they can take about 3 or 4 breaths, or more, of 90 percent oxygen until they feel more comfortable.  Once opened, the can of Sports Oxygen can be used over and over again until all the oxygen is used.  You don't have to use all the oxygen at once.  The can will last a long time while only taking a few breaths at a time.

When you take a breath of Sports Oxygen, you inhale a full breath of oxygen, however the lungs do not consume the whole breath and when you exhale again, you exhale a portion of the oxygen you just inhaled.  The oxygen forms a cloud of oxygen around your mouth so that your second breath will inhale most of the oxygen you just exhaled.  The next exhale will also breath out some of the unused oxygen and your third inhale will also breath in enhanced oxygen.  About this time your next inhale should breath oxygen from the can and you repeat the cycle again.

Depending upon the individual and the level of physical activity at high altitude, the individual should start feeling better after a couple of days.  The body naturally acclimatizes to the high elevation so that after a period the supplemental Sports Oxygen in no longer needed.

You can order a 6 pack of Sports Oxygen today and it will be delivered in 5 business days.
