Usage Instructions

 Canned oxygen is recreational oxygen stored in an aluminium canister and delivered through a pressurized mechanism. “Recreational oxygen,” a term that has become somewhat synonymous with “canned oxygen,” essentially applies to any oxygen product that is neither medical nor industrial oxygen. Because canned oxygen is not medical or industrial oxygen, it can be easily purchased over the counter and does not require a prescription.

During its time of need, the body’s response to maintain blood oxygen levels is to breathe more heavily to increase oxygen intake. When the body does not receive enough oxygen from the outside, it starts to use internal sources for its oxygen. This is called anaerobic respiration. Muscle fatigue and cramping occur when the glycogen in oxygen-starved blood turns into lactic acid. Adding oxygen to the blood inhibits the production of lactic acid, and helps the body clear out any lactic acid that is already present. Recovery is easier with supplemental oxygen. 

 Place up to mouth, press button firmly and inhale. For Large and Medium size canisters, place mask under the nose and over mouth. Press trigger down to activate flow. Breath in through the mouth.

Oxygen gas is virtually weightless. Sealed oxygen cans are very light, but they are guaranteed as full. The weight of a full can feels empty as the Oxygen inside has no discernible mass. This weight advantage makes oxygen cans convenient to carry around.

Large Oxygen in a Can canister contains 12 litres of Aviator’s Breathing Oxygen, which equates to over 200 seconds of continuous oxygen flow, or over 200 one-second inhalations.

Medium size canisters contain 6 litres of Aviator’s Breathing Oxygen, which is up to 100 one-second inhalations.

Oxygen in a Can is pressure-filled only into the can (sort of like a tire). No aerosols or propellants are used. As the can depletes, the pressure of the oxygen flow from the can will also deplete until finally empty. When the oxygen no longer flows, the can is empty.

Oxygen in a Can is 95% purified oxygen (5% ambient air) that comes in lightweight, portable, easy-to-use canisters. Oxygen in a Can or OXYBURST is used as a supplement to perform better, assist with hangovers and fatigue as well as promote a heightened sense of personal health and well-being.

Medical Conditions

Oxygen in a Can states that it is “NOT for medical or prescription use.” What does this mean?

Oxygen therapies that are prescribed by a medical doctor to treat medical conditions are completely different from Oxygen in a Can. Oxygen in a Can is recreational Aviator’s Breathing Oxygen (95% pure), not USP medical oxygen (defined as 99.2% or above). Although both are produced in the same manner, recreational oxygen is designed for healthy people looking to experience the benefits of recreational oxygen in the different facets of their life. It is not intended for use by anyone who has asthma, lung ailments, or heart problems, or as a substitute for physician-prescribed or life-saving oxygen.

Our canisters are made from aluminum, which means they are recyclable. They can be disposed of along with the normal cans you recycle every day!

The cells of the human body can only create energy if they have oxygen. And they must create energy to function. Oxygen research has shown that breathing increased oxygen-content air improves cognitive performance, including memory and reaction time. Research also shows recreational oxygen can help improve performance, endurance and recovery in sports. Most people who have tried Oxygen in a Can report that they feel more alert and energetic after a few breaths of oxygen. They often use it whenever they want to feel an invigorating boost – while traveling, in the morning, after a long day, or a late night out.

When used as directed, oxygen for recreational use has no side effects, zero carbs, zero calories and zero caffeine. The Benefits of Oxygen in a Can is endless. Read more about the benefits of Oxygen in a Can. 

Oxygen in a Can offers oxygen for energy and freshness which is an ideal product for revitalizing you from the stresses of modern life that leaves you depleted and tired. Oxygen in a Can is there for you whenever you need energy. It instantly restores your energies, increases your mental alertness, and elevates your mood. Just breathe 95% Pure Natural Oxygen for feeling fresh and full of vigor.

How To

This depends widely on your circumstances, body weight, type, etc. If you are working out at the gym and want to recover more quickly between sets, 2-3 inhalations between sets when needed may do the trick. Same for the high altitude, stress and ‘second wind’ applications. The attractive benefit to oxygen is that the effects are fairly immediate – oxygen is admitted into the bloodstream directly, so you should be able to gauge after the 3-5 inhalations if your need any more. Oxygen in a Can is not a substitute for individuals who have been prescribed Medical Oxygen (99% Purity) for health reasons. It is solely intended for recreational use.

Exhale. With the canister in hand, press the actuator button to release the flow. Breathe in Oxygen in a Can through your mouth. Exhale. Three to five breaths usually do the trick. It just depends on what you’re up to. Some people inhale the whole can in one go if they’re working or playing hard, or in environments with low oxygen content. You may notice more oxygen flows out during the first few breaths than it does for the last few breaths. To accommodate getting more oxygen as the canister nears its end, simply increase the time you press down on the actuator, and take longer breaths.

There are a few simple ways you can get more oxygen. Read our blog post on 5 simple ways you can get more oxygen.

Oxygen in a Can, The Healthy Lifestyle.

Is it Working?

Each person’s response to breathing enriched oxygen will be different. The Oxygen in a Can experience is not equivalent to an energy rush from a shot of caffeine or other energy stimulants. After a few breaths, you should feel invigorated — either a mental or physical boost or a sense of calm. If you were to ascend to an elevation 3,000 feet or higher than your normal elevation, the effect of breathing oxygen would be more noticeable, both physically and mentally. If you’re using oxygen for intense exercise, you’ll likely find you perform better, feel stronger and more alert, and that you’ll have less exhaustion after working out. If you’re not feeling the benefits of breathing Oxygen in a Can, try taking more frequent, shorter breaths, and don’t hold the breath of oxygen in your lungs longer than you would when taking a normal deep breath. Note that your overall health and physicality, in addition to proper usage, play into how much Oxygen your body needs to feel the effects of breathing Oxygen.

Under normal atmospheric conditions, ambient air contains 21% oxygen. That’s without considering the presence of compromised or polluted air. Oxygen in Can products are enriched with a much higher concentration of oxygen – nearly five times the normal air we breathe.

“Recreational oxygen,” a term that has become somewhat synonymous with “supplemental oxygen,” “portable oxygen,” and “canned oxygen,” essentially applies to any oxygen product that is neither medical oxygen nor industrial oxygen. A stationary oxygen bar would also be considered recreational oxygen even though the oxygen creation process and purity differs from quality canned oxygen products.

We generously define Oxygen in a Can breath or a “deep” breath as equalling approximately two seconds long. The way other recreational canned oxygen companies define a breath varies. Some define a breath as one second long. So, keep this in mind if you’re shopping for oxygen products. You might be interested to know an accurate way to compare products is to look at the volume of oxygen per canister volume – or the price per litters (litres) in a canister. Oxygen in a Can products offer more oxygen per can volume than any other canned oxygen of comparable-sized canisters on the market.

Not Feeling the Benefits

First, make sure you’re properly breathing Oxygen in a Can. 1) Exhale. 2) Inhale Oxygen in a Can, as you press the actuating button. 3) Exhale. 4) Repeat, as desired.

In general, we suggest you use Oxygen in a Can when you’re active – mentally or physically – and want a boost.

If you’re breathing Oxygen in a Can products correctly, but are still not “feeling” the effects in your mind or body, it could be one of the following reasons:

1) Your body’s oxygen levels may already be optimal – or what’s considered “normal, healthy” oxygen levels (96-99% SpO2).

2) You may not be inhaling enough Oxygen in a Can. Your body’s oxygen levels may be significantly lower than what the standard recommendation (3 to 5 deep breaths) is meant to replenish. If this is the case, simply inhale more Oxygen in a Can through your mouth or your nose until you feel more like you again – and have restored your body’s oxygen levels to 96-99% SpO2.

It is our experience that a high-quality pulse oximeter is a great tool to “read” your blood-oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) – before, during and after you breathe Oxygen in a Can. It’s a great way to spot-check if your oxygen levels are low and see when you’re topped off. If you’re new to using Oxygen in a Can in your daily life, it can be especially helpful to put an oximeter on your finger while you’re inhaling Oxygen in a Can so you can see where you are, see it increase, and see when you’ve reach optimal oxygen levels (which normally falls between 96 to 100 percent SpO2).

Usually, a SpO2 reading increases with each breath of Oxygen in a Can, if and as the product is properly inhaled. However, we cannot guarantee this experience happens every time because there are too many variables we cannot control (e.g., the oximeter may not be functioning properly, an individual may not be using Oxygen in a Can properly). Please note Oxygen in Can products, as well as the use of an oximeter with Oxygen in Can products, is intended only for recreational use and is not a medical or lifesaving device. Thus, we cannot make any statements about a medical condition and any medically related use of an oximeter with Oxygen in Can products (see “PRECAUTION” on the canister).

Your body is designed to function on 21% oxygen in the air you breathe. Polluted or stale air usually contains less than 21% oxygen, which can impede the optimal functioning of your cells. Most importantly, your brain cells are the first affected, resulting in impaired reaction time and judgment. For natural energy and recovery, active, wellness-minded people who work and play hard breathe Oxygen in a Can to restore depleted oxygen levels to optimal levels. Since it is difficult to monitor atmospheric oxygen, we suggest trying a few quick breaths of Oxygen in a Can to help you feel mentally sharper, more alert and energetic.

How Often

Oxygen in a Can can be used every day. We recommend using Oxygen in a Can any time you may be experiencing depleted oxygen levels – i.e., at a higher elevation, during and after intense exercise, where air pollution and stale air are prevalent, after a late-night out. Note that all Oxygen in a Can product is for recreational, intermittent use only. Prolonged use is defined as uninterrupted intake for more than 8 hours. WARNING: Persons with any type of health or medical condition should consult their physician prior to use of products.

Although the concentration of oxygen in the atmosphere is uniform at all elevations, lower barometric pressures at higher altitudes allow all molecules in the air to expand so each breath contains fewer oxygen molecules. The larger molecule problem can be counteracted by increasing the oxygen concentration of the air you breathe or by acclimatizing to the higher elevation over a period of weeks. Not being acclimatized can result in shortness of breath during exertion, hyperventilation, and more. During use, Oxygen in a Can product can supply a higher concentration of oxygen that simulates being at a lower altitude.

Not advised. Although oxygen gas is non-flammable, a compressed oxygen canister vigorously accelerates fire and flames. In case you’re wondering, the cylinders worn by firefighters contain normal, ambient air.

Oxygen in a Can is designed to be lightweight and portable for optimum convenience. Our manufacturing technology – which compresses oxygen in its durable aluminum canisters – provides a lot of oxygen per canister volume.

In case you’ve heard otherwise, oxygen is not weightless: The gas is very lightweight (like ambient air) with an atomic mass of 15.999 u.

FYI, shaking the canister does not tell you whether it’s empty or full. Press the actuating button to be sure. The canister is completely empty – and can be recycled according to local regulations – when the oxygen flow stops while the actuating button is depressed.

Note: The oxygen flows stronger with a new canister, and dispenses more slowly as you use the canister.

Other Questions

The benefits of supplemental oxygen have varying durations, depending on the individual and the benefit. The feeling of alertness and mental clarity has been shown to last several minutes. Often the “feelings” of using supplemental oxygen depend on what you’re doing, your starting blood oxygen level, and how well you are breathing, among other things.

Portable and lightweight, you can always top off depleted oxygen levels to optimal when you’re on the go.

Traveling by air can lower your body’s oxygen saturation levels by as much as 12%. A few deep breaths of Oxygen in a Can after a long flight can help you get where you’re going refreshed. Currently, commercial airline passengers are not allowed to bring canned recreational oxygen in checked or carry-on luggage.

Oxygen in a Can canister is very durable. They are made from extremely thick aluminum and are designed and able to withstand extremely high pressure – including the increased pressure at a higher elevation.

If the canister is not exposed to heat (e.g., a canister is left in a hot car) above 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you’re good to go. This important extreme heat precaution is listed on each canister for safety.

You may notice the flow of oxygen is different – perhaps a bit slower – at extremely high elevation because oxygen molecules become less dense as atmospheric pressure decreases. We suggest bringing a handful of Oxygen in a Can on your next mountain adventure to elevate your experience.

Every Oxygen in a Can  product states “Best by 24 months from fill date” on the canister. The fill date is located on the bottom of each canister. While the gas of oxygen itself never expires, we added this “shelf life” or product lifespan time frame to ensure you’re completely satisfied with the value of your purchase well beyond the typical time you’d finish a canister. After 24 months, Oxygen in a Can products will still work and are safe to use if stored as directed, however a user may experience slightly fewer “breaths.” FYI, a canister that’s been opened or used does not expire any faster than an unopened canister.

To provide more detail, while the oxygen content inside the canister does not degrade over time, there is a possibility that a slight loss of pressure in the canister may occur after a 24 month period due to atmospheric pressure and temperature changes. That is why it is important that the product is stored properly in a cool, dry place and does not exceed 49° C/ 120° F.  Oxygen in a Can stability testing has shown the contents of Oxygen in a Can products (pure recreational oxygen) retain integrity well after the 24 month period.

Oxygen in a Can products are sleek, compact, durable, lightweight, and push-button ready-to-use, designed for portability and style – so they can go wherever you go – anytime you need a lift of pure energy and recovery. Available in a variety of sizes, packs and consumer-friendly prices, Oxygen in a Can goes further to ensure it goes where you go. Oxygen in a Can ensures you have a safe and functional product in hand while you’re on the go.
