Hypoxia – a term that is well known to most hikers and trekkers, probably to most pilots and passengers of sports, ultra-light, business, private and other aircrafts, those who are jumping in tandems, gliders and people who can find themselves at the altitudes above 2000 meters. But what exactly is hypoxia?

The term hypoxia is strongly connected with term hypoxemia. Hypoxemia is a state or a condition where our body, especially and the most important, arteries does not get sufficient level of oxygen. This can lead to hypoxia, which is a state or a condition in which whole body, cells and organs, does not get sufficient amount of oxygen to perform normal life functions. However, hypoxia is sometimes used for describing both states, hypoxemia and hypoxia as well, since it presents broader term in sense of insufficient oxygen level. Within the body, hypoxemia can lead to hypoxia, to various tissues and organs. The most severe for human can be brain hypoxia, since it can result in brain damage or even death. Even more, it can be experienced conversely, if a person experiences environmental hypoxia (low or absent oxygen in the environment from high altitudes or drowning for example), the person can develop hypoxemia.

Generally, both states, hypoxia and hypoxemia, can be diagnosed by physical examination of our body, through monitors that measure level of oxygen in our body or most convenient way through oximeters. Symptoms of hypoxia and/or hypoxemia can be acute or chronic, nevertheless can be very dangerous and vary in intensity from mild to severe. Most common acute symptoms are faster heart rate, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, sweating, cough, wheezing, lower confusion, headaches, fatigue or tiredness and raised blood pressure. Severe symptoms are changes in your skin color and nails, higher confusion, the inability to communicate, nausea and vomiting, disorientation, possible coma or even death. Neither acute or more severe symptoms can be negligible. Although we now know what the symptoms are, we also have to learn how to prevent them.

Hypoxia and/or hypoxemia may be prevented in some individuals by avoiding circumstances that reduce oxygen concentration in the environments or by providing oxygen before symptoms develop. The only treatment or prevention is thus to provide our body with additional oxygen, so body can again start to perform normal life function. Therefore we recommend our FeelOXY natural product – pure oxygen in a can, which will give you sufficient amount of oxygen to prevent negative effects, caused by hypoxia and/or hypoxemia.
