Acute breathing problems are often the result of chronic diseases, with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) being the most common lung disease many patients suffer from. It takes an effective oxygen therapy to improve shortness of breath. After a long stay in hospital, patients are often eager to return to their normal environments, where their oxygen therapy is to be continued. This is where VitalAire GmbH comes in. The company is the specialist for home oxygen therapy and has taken on a vanguard position in respiratory health care in Germany.
