Oxygen Assistant addresses the increased demand for affordable rental of portable supplemental oxygen systems in the mountainous regions of Colorado.

Acute mountain sickness, also known as altitude sickness, is caused by the reduction of air pressure when rapidly ascending to high altitudes. According to the NIH, it is characterized by impaired physical performance and an increase in ventilation frequency. It also causes shortness of breath, headache, dizziness, and fatigue.

“Carrying a portable oxygen concentrator can help reduce those symptoms instead of taking medication,” explains a company spokesperson, “because medication, such as Acetazolamide, can cause many side effects, some of which are not preferable to have to deal with when exposed to sunlight or during driving.”

Oxygen Assistant offers rentals of portable concentrators suited for treating altitude sickness, as they weigh under 10 pounds. They support pulse dose operation, meaning their oxygen release is triggered upon inhalation. This improves their battery life and conserves energy.

The company also offers affordable rentals of stationary oxygen concentrators in other parts of San Miguel County. A doctor usually prescribes these medical devices to treat chronic lung conditions at home. Oxygen Assistant’s fixed O2 concentrators feature a ‘continuous flow’ mode of operation that delivers 90-96% pure oxygen at 0.5 to 5 liters per minute. In addition, Oxygen Assistant supplies gently used portable oxygen concentrators.
