W.J. of Hardinsburg, KY is a new oxygen patient, but he has very quickly come to appreciate how much of a difference his portable oxygen concentrator has made in his life. In fact, "it's like a miracle," he says. Currently, W.J. is undergoing weekly treatment at his local hospital, and has regular doctor appointments. He is out of his home 4 or 5 times a week, and with this kind of schedule standard oxygen tanks would not work for him. "I used oxygen tanks for a short time, but they were too heavy."
Fortunately, W.J. was referred to Open-Aire and he was able to get a lightweight portable oxygen concentrator that has greatly reduced the burden of his hospital trips. Now that the tanks are gone, his trips to the hospital are much easier. "One battery is all it takes," he says. "That gets me to the hospital. I use their equipment while I’m there, and when it’s time to leave my portable oxygen concentrator is still ready to go." We wish W.J. the best, and hope his trips to the hospital end soon so he can return to an active and mobile life.
