Oxygen Masks

When you need a some more oxygen, you'll get a mask!

Everybody knows what Halloween masks are for, and everbody knows that they make you a little bit uncomfortable if you wear them for awhile. Well, this type of mask is different. It makes you a lot more comfortable when you wear it, because it helps you to breathe better. It sends more oxygen to your lungs when you need it, and it does all this without hurting, and without smelling bad. Amazing. 

If you have a problem with asthma, like lots of kids, then you may have used a mask like this one to get your special medicine...medicine that opens your breathing tubes up so that you can breathe without huffing and puffing. I sort of feel like I'm a pilot when I wear the mask!
