Oxygen For Breathlessness During Exercise and Walking

Oxygen for breathlessness during walking and exercise is a type of therapy used to improve oxygen flow and breathing when a person becomes short of breath during physical activity. Oxygen for breathlessness during walking and exercise may be necessary for someone who has heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary embolism, or other lung diseases. Oxygen therapy is a treatment in which oxygen is administered through a mask over the face or small tubes in the nose to help make breathing easier. Breathlessness during walking and exercise indicates that the lungs are unable to take in enough oxygen, and causes the sensation that you can't catch your breath.
