Oxygen for High Altitude / Elevation
Higher Elevation means lower oxygen levels
Testimonial from an E/Pax owner:
My Mom is coming out for a visit in about three weeks. She is in good health for her age, but lives at around 300 feet elevation. She loves the Rocky Mountains and insists on touring Colorado when she gets here. Some of the passes we will drive over are at 11,000 feet altitude. I am sure it's obvious why I want the insurance of an emergency oxygen supply.

Risks associated with high altitude are not obvious to everyone.
At sea level, the air we breath is about 21% Oxygen. At 10,000 feet elevation, the air drops to 14.5% oxygen. When someone goes from sea level to 8,000 feet elevation, a person's blood oxygen saturation can drop from 96% to 90% and can cause Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) that is manifested with both psychological and physiological ailments. At 10,000 - 12,000 feet elevation, a person's blood oxygen saturation can drop to 80%.
