Oxygen in a can

Postby gerard » Mon Oct 01, 2012 10:40 am

Does anyone know anywhere that might sell "oxygen in a can" in Lima? The small bottles that you can carry around on hikes etc? Not proper medical oxygen bottles.

Something like this http://www.oxyfit.co.uk/Oxygen_in_a_can_8_litres_with_inhaler_cap_552.aspx.

I have not seen them in Lima, but I have seen them in cuzco, arequipa and puno so they are distributed in Peru and that means most likely the come through Lima.

Maybe someone on the forum who lives in one of those areas will be nice enough to ask who the distributor is and report back here so we can source it back to Lima.

Thanks for the info - that was enough for me to find what I needed. Cusco is where we'd need it anyway.

I don't have a confirmed price but I'm reading around $10/can, and they seem to have outlets all around the city.

I know is is available in. cusco,Arequipa and Puno,but does anybody know if I can buy these cans of oxygen in Lima? I have a group of volunteers going to Chanchamayo and will pass over the mountains in Ticlio. They won't be traveling to Cusco/Arequpia/Puno before so I would need to get this in Lima.

Thanks! 8)
