High Altitude Oxygen Delivery Service
Nausea, headache, insomnia and diarrhea are just some of the ways your vacation can get derailed by high altitude. The Body Connection’s Oxygen Delivery Service allows you to rest well and stay active for your high altitude vacation, meeting or event. Delivered direct to your cabin, ski lodge, hotel or vacation rental, we have multiple concentrated oxygen rental units that serve individuals, couples or groups, and deliver 5 and 10 liters per minute. This service is offered in select locations.
What is an oxygen concentrator? Oxygen concentrators do just that – they produce highly concentrated oxygen from surrounding room air so they never need to be refilled. Our oxygen concentrators are lightweight and quiet. They plug into the wall and are mounted on wheels, making it convenient to roll from room to room. We even provide aromatherapy to add to the positive effects of the oxygen experience; eucalyptus assists in hydrating nasal passages and lavender advances relaxation so you get better sleep.
Speaking of Sleep? Oxygen levels at any elevation drop during the hours that we sleep. Using the oxygen concentrator while you sleep in higher altitudes can assist in getting better night’s rest so you can enjoy the next day.
Plan ahead to stay oxygenated and refreshed while you adapt to higher elevations. Make a Reservation.

About Oxygen and Altitude
Due to lower air pressure that exists in higher altitudes, each lungful has less air volume and contains less oxygen. As we ascend to higher levels, our bodies go through physiological changes in attempts to adjust to “thinner air”. Heart rate and breathing speeds up, and cells change so they can use oxygen more efficiently. Reduction in oxygen intake can cause altitude sickness symptoms until acclimation occurs.
Altitude Sickness – What to know before you go
Who is More Likely to Experience Altitude Sickness?
Altitude sickness can sideline anyone at any time, regardless of age, gender or fitness level. The same person that had no problem acclimating on a previous trip can be stricken with altitude sickness symptoms on another trip to the same location.
How to Recognize Altitude Sickness
Onset of symptoms can occur quickly upon reaching elevations of 8,000 feet, but according to the National Institute of Health, altitude sickness can occur at lower elevation levels too. Most people experience a throbbing headache accompanied by one or more symptom below that feels worse with the slightest physical activity.

Acclimate to High Altitude Naturally
So many factors weigh in to altitude sickness. Increase your odds of avoiding it or recovering more quickly from the symptoms by following these Tips for Adjusting to High Altitude.
Schedule a “Do Nothing Day” – Let your body ease into new heights, particularly if your home elevation is closer to sea level. Limit activity the first day. Use oxygen when you arrive.
Use oxygen while you sleep – Humans don’t breathe as deeply or frequently during sleep. Use sleep time to recharge your battery.
Stay hydrated – Employ humidifiers, limit dehydrating drinks like caffeine and alcohol.
High altitude diet – Eat smaller, lighter meals (low fat/high carb) so blood supply spends less time focused on digestion and more time supplying blood (and oxygen) to cells in the rest of your body.
Listen to your body – Take breaks from the fun to check in with your body. Scan for and respond to symptoms. Don’t let serious symptoms persist. Seek lower elevation and medical attention.
