Ladakh, "The land of Passes", is a dream destination for almost all of us and an experience worth lifetime. The main tourist sites relate to Tibetan Buddhism, and to the stunning landscape. Many travelers find themselves at a loss to understand how something so barren can yet be so beautiful. Ladakh with an exceptional trademark that is a mix of Indian, Tibetan & Buddhism linings make it a place which merits visiting. On the other hand, sometimes we do not take care of ourselves and get hit by Mountain Sickness & here comes the need of a good quality Portable Oxygen Cylinder. I had visited Ladakh five times till day and all of, I found this portable oxygen can the most useful first aid.
Mountain sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), occurs when you ascend rapidly to an altitude of 2,500m and above. As you start going up from the sea level, the level oxygen steadily decreases making it difficult to breathe. If you are going trekking in Nepal or any other high altitude destination, you must carry along half a dozen OXY99 portable oxygen cans to guard against the risk of acute mountain sickness.
Typical symptoms of mountain sickness include:
- Nausea, vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Insomnia / sleeplessness
- Persistent headache
- Dizziness, light headache, confusion
- Disorientation, drunken gait
- Weakness, fatigue, lassitude, heavy legs
- Slight swelling of hands and face
- Breathlessness and breathing irregularly
- Reduced urine output
Appearance of symptoms of AMS must be taken seriously as they can worsen if left unattended. Every year one million people suffer from the symptoms of mountain sickness. The symptoms are self-diagnosable and self-treatable. OXY99 oxygen cans are ideal for combating the symptoms of altitude sickness. Just breathe 3-5 inhalations at the beginning of the trek and it will help you cope with the steep ascend. Continue inhaling OXY99 canned oxygen at regular intervals.
